Just when you thought the ‘controversy’ over a female Master was the big headline-grabber of the Series 8 finale, up popped a moment that has split fans like – well, like everything else about Series 8, to be fair: the re-animation of one of Earth’s great heroes and the Doctor’s good friend, Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart – as a Cyberman.
