Surely mention has to go to the Clockwork Men from this story because they were awesome. They had an excellent design and were genuinly creepy. They are one of the few NuWho monsters I would like to see make a return. Excellent bad guys.

I loved these guys. They worked so well I think because they looked so brilliant. They didn't look cheap, they didn't look thrown together and they didn't look like they were drawn on a computer. I would love to see them return, but I would want them in their 17th century clothes too, which would probably be unlikely.

They did look truly awesome, and though it would be cool to see a return, I wouldn't want it to ruin them. (Which they did with the Weeping Angels)

I loved them, but for me they were more scary because of their clothes and masks, and if they were to return they wouldn't need them (unless the story is set in the same era again) so for that reason I sort of wouldn't want them to return. In this story though I thought they were great.

I'm sort of with Joshua. I thought they were excellent but I am not sure I would want them to be brought back. There would be a risk that they are used for the sake of their popularity rather than finding them an appropriate and good enough story which has happened a lot in NuWho, particularly with the Daleks, and I think that would/could damage their reputation with viewers.

I absolutely love these guys. I think a major part of that for me was the way they were dressed and the masks which were really creepy, but the robots stuff on the inside also looked awesome. I'd be more than happy to have them reappear.
