The mainstream media have reacted positively to the new-look Cybermen, revealed by the BBC last night.
Continuing the media’s love of all things ‘Who’ today’s papers give a ‘thumbs up’ to the latest version of the silver giants.
The Mirror tells readers that “the Timelord’s enemies look scarier than when they last appeared in 1988” while The Daily Mail announces “they’re back – and this time they are a more deadly breed”. The Mail’s article also appears on their sister site This is London, the website of the London Evening Standard.
Adam Sherwin, writing in The Times under the headline “Aaaaaaaargh! its the Cybermen!”, notes that they “have been redesigned by the same experts who reinvented the Daleks and previously worked on films including Hellraiser II.”
