Cybermen Go Home

I haven’t seen anyone commenting on the fact that “Nightmare in Silver,” the title of Doctor Who’s upcoming Cybermen episode scripted by Neil Gaiman, appears to be a nod to the titles of six short stories – “Nightmare in Gray,” “Nightmare in Green,” “Nightmare in White,” “Nightmare in Blue,” “Nightmare in Yellow,” and “Nightmare in Red” – in Nightmares and Geezenstacks (collected here) by the incomparable Fredric Brown (of whose work Gaiman is known to be a fan).

So I hereby comment on it.

FWIW, other admirers of Brown’s work include Ayn Rand, Mickey Spillane, Robert Heinlein, and Philip K. Dick.
