It’s the beginning of the end this weekend as Doctor Who returns for the first half of its series finale, Dark Water. The Cybermen are back and as metallic as ever, as are the mysterious Missy (Michelle Gomez) and her henchman Gus (Chris Addison).
The official synopsis suggest something dark is afoot, be it water or otherwise:
In the mysterious world of the Nethersphere, plans have been drawn up. Missy is about to come face to face with the Doctor, and an impossible choice is looming. “Death is not an end” promises the sinister organisation known only as 3W – but, as the Doctor and Clara discover, you might wish it was.
