When the Doctor, Clara, Artie and Angie arrive, the last thing they expect is the re-emergence of one of the Doctor’s oldest foes. The Cybermen are back!

BBC2 will be showing Dad's Army from 7:05pm and then The Culture Show from 7:35pm, Channel 4 finishes up a marathon run of Come Dine With Me followed by the News from 7:15pm, and Channel 5's film Jesse Stone: Night Passage finishes at 7:10pm, followed by NCIS.


Internationally, Nightmare in Silver will be broadcast in the United States and Canada on BBC America and SPACE respectively at 8:00pm ET the same evening, and then on Sunday it can be watched in Australia via ABC at 7:30pm, Poland via BBC Entertainment at 6:00pm, and South Africa via BBC Entertainment at 7:00pm. Meanwhile, New Zealand viewers will see Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS this Thursday on PRIME at 8:30pm.
