Quote from: The Discontinuity Guide
'A fifty foot monster can't swim up the Thames and attack a large building without somebody noticing. But you know what politicians are like.' There are amusing acknowledgements of some of Doctor Who's visual limitations in a story still remembered for the clumsy puppet Skarasen.

The Doctor hears of the Zygon's plans to conquer the Earth and asks 'Isn't it a bit large for just about six of you?'. Like The Hand of Fear, the traditional BBC gravel pit is called upon to be a real quarry instead of some exotic alien planet.

Another one of my favourites. Considering their sole appearance, the Zygons left such an impact on Doctor Who and really need to come back. They have been covered in books and audios, but I want them back on screen. I've heard whispers that it is in the pipeline (which is why they went to such painful lengths to restore the costume for the Experience) so hopefully we will see them again soon.

Hear hear.  This was also the Brig's final regular appearance (though of course not his last ever).  Long overdue for DVD release.

I think the Zygons should return. They have such a unique alien design- they're not just blobulous or generic humanoid. They're got these weird proportions like a strange cactus or what-not. I'd love to see what today's prosthetics could do!

Today, the Kaled race is ended, consumed in a fire of war. But, from its ashes will rise a new race. The supreme creature. The ultimate conqueror of the universe. The Dalek!
