During the episode they were referred to as

Repair droids

But I don't think they were ever called by their actual name. What are they called?

Those are the Clockwork Droids, previously seen in The Girl in the Fireplace.

Yep, from the sister ship of the ship in the previous episode. –  BBlake Aug 25 at 11:57

The ship in Deep Breath is the 'SS Marie Antoinette', which is the sister ship of the 'SS Madame de Pompadour' from The Girl in the Fireplace. –  Peter Walser Aug 25 at 13:49
    
+1 thanks. And I've also since found that the leader is known as Half Face Man. –  JK. Aug 26 at 2:32
