Since its revival in 2005, the fabulous new series has occasionally dug up something from the past to scare a new generation of viewers and put a nostalgic smile on the faces of seasoned fans. Cult Spy has previously detailed the Monster Makeovers on the likes of the Daleks, Cybermen, Autons and Macra, plus news that the Sontarans are back for the new season.
But what other classic creatures should be brought back? Choose just one from five contenders below and submit your vote using the 'Your Views' section below. Next week will feature another five monsters, with the winners from each vote being unveiled in the near future…
This rather cute race of scientifically advanced creatures arguably have a better claim to own Earth than humans, for they were here first before being forced into hibernation in the sea. Despite some of their number being compassionate, they wanted to reclaim their territory and both the Third and Fifth Doctors succesfully repelled their threat. In today's age, with aggressive fish farming causing stocks of cod to run dangerously low, wouldn't it be fun to have these ocean monsters rise from the waters once more and give Captain Birdseye a big slap?
These scaly villains, with their menacing claws and faces that resemble David Gest wearing shades, fought against the Second and Third Doctors in several adventures. Originating from Mars, this race could easily be cajoled into action through one of those various probes us earthlings keep sending to their planet to poke around. The new Doctor Who has also shown it likes to have its finger on popular culture by various big name cameos from the entertainment world. So how about decking out Posh, Sporty, Scary, Ginger and Baby in green exoskeletons and creating the Spice Warriors? The tabloids will lap it up!
A lethal race of alien plants encountered the Sixth Doctor on board a space liner, with the Time Lord being forced to commit genoide and wipe out the Vervoids. Their (flawed) survival strategy was to kill humans through shooting a poisoned thorn from the palms of their hands into their victims - and then dumping them on a 'compost heap'. Should just one leaf from a Vervoid reach the planet Earth then Alan Titchmarsh and Charlie Dimmock had better run for cover! So how about a new crop of the vicious vegetables? Alongside slaying celebrity gardeners, their return could also be tied in with the current fear towards farming methods using pesticides and chemicals to ensure more profitable harvests.
These malevolent, hissing and distinctly ugly aliens tried to colonise our planet by deploying a cyborg Loch Ness Monster and disguising themselves as key humans thanks to a spot of shape shifting. The Fourth Doctor - aided by the dependable UNIT - saved the day, but how would the Zygons fare in the new series? Perhaps they could use their body-snatching abilities to take control of 10, Downing Street and disguise themselves as the British government? Darn, those damned Slitheen got there first. Still, the Zygons didn't seem to have a flatulence problem back in 1975 at least.
Definitely this week's wild card and the subject of a Cult Spy phobia corner, the Kandy Man was lampooned by fans when it strutted onto our screens back in 1988. A robot composed of various sweets with a fondue-ness for killing victims with a sickly sweet gloop, the Kandy Man could be resurrected by Russell T Davies to feed off the recent backlash against junk food. But instead of a pastille and liquorice outer shell, the Kandy Man could now be made of mechanically reclaimed meat and turkey twizzlers! Oh yes, be afraid Jamie Oliver, be very afraid!
