Both The Sun and The Telegraph are reporting that in the Doctor Who Christmas Special 2008, the Doctor will face mutated versions of the Cybermen, apparently called Cybershades. A BBC insiders says:
"Like we did with the Daleks, we've taken the original robot and made it a bit more sinister. The Cybershade is a mutant with some of the looks of the Cybermen - but it is a much darker creation. Fans always want something new. Just wheeling out Cybermen again would be tame."Thanks to Mark from Tardis and Torchwood Treasures for the quote!
