Skaro's Spoiler Review: Series 7 - Nightmare in Silver
Nightmare in Silver, written by Neil Gaiman is certainly an episode that will be remembered in Doctor Who. To some it may be the episode that re-made the cybermen scary, to others it may be the one that made them look like Iron Man, but to me it is the former. I have to say I loved this episode (although I have loved the majority of this series), Neil Gaiman has worked his magic on each character in this episode, giving the children courage, Clara authority and for once The Doctor, with only 49.881% of his brain.
The references to the Classic series in this episode is something that should be noted, there are tons hidden with the episode including the ability to be highly sensitive to Gold - which in itself was enough to make me squeel with joy.
