The magazine features a preview of the series, with an interview with head writer Chris Chibnall, who discusses how the show has been is life-changing, occupying all his waking hours. Admitting the pressure on his first series was huge, he said the new series will be a step up, with more scale, fun and some new and old monsters:
I really wanted to see Jodie against the Cybermen. There are certain monsters you want to see a Doctor go up against. She met a Dalek in Resolution last New Year. Cybermen feel like an important part of the rogues’ gallery and we’ve done something slightly different with them this year – there was a particular story I wanted to tell. They’re just relentless, the Cybermen. They just don’t stop.
