    Mega kudos on the ultimate 12th Doctor outfit, nice! =P

  2. Jake says:


  3. Allen says:

    Myrka.  How can you forget the Myrka?  Worst ever.

  4. Phil Wagstaff says:

    By the way(name drop corner,sorry!)-Sil never really worked,because I’ve met Nabil Shaban,and he’s a top bloke-to the point it undermined his performance for me,unfortunately!

  5. Phil Wagstaff says:

    Bit cheap putting an invention by a kid in at number 5;sour grapes on the part of uncreative eternal competition losers,maybe?Anyway.Drashigs.Or the Gastropod at a half-hearted push.Now,that IS a Twin Dilemma!

  6. Rose says:

    That’s not the monster of Peladon. That’s the candidate from Alpha Centauri…

  7. Heather says:

    I adore Cassandra, I didn’t even see that coming

  8. Calen says:

    The Adipose!  They were the worst because they were made out of human fat! 

  9. Dave says:

    The monster of Paeladon looked like ALF… That was an alien diplomat, I think.

  10. These creatures are TERRIFYING.

  11. Patrick says:

    Until I see Peter Capaldi shove a cyanide rag down someone’s throat, then nonchalantly make TWO puns about it afterward, the Sixth Doctor will forever remain the darkest Doctor.

  12. Henrik says:

    So glad you referenced Classic Who on your list. That’s going the extra mile. 

  13. Abzorbaloff was designed by a nine year old, so…

  14. Jake Peck says:

    Sorry (so sorry) to contradict you Jessica, but the pickle with legs is actually Alpha Centauri of the Galactic Federation and not the Monster of Peladon.  The monster was in fact a holographic version of Aggador, The people of Peladon’s ancient deity being used to frighten Peladonians into the old ways and shoo the Galactic Federation away to breach a trade alliance.  

  15. Kungfoood says:

    You should check out the Zarbi. They’re literally ants with two human legs

  16. miguel says:

    you know what’s the best? Dr. F***ing Who!   Muahahahahaha… gotta love it.
