Monster of the Day #1080

Finally, the Jelly Babies have their revenge!

Funny these guys have never reemerged. This is a fondly remembered episode, and the race is oft-mentioned. Well, they brought back the Zygons, so who knows?

    Bet he uses his scarf to defeat it.

    I like the idea that these guys and the Sontarans were the bitterest of enemies yet they were both pretty much evil.

    Really, they haven’t reused the Croutons… um Rutons yet? Seems like they’d be a natural for CGI. Neat episode although the Ruton still reminds me of a lime piece of hard candy.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    This was a particularly grim episode as I recall, in that the survivors were, um, few in number. But Louise Jameson got to stop wearing contacts!

    Lime Jello, it is not just for hospital meals.

  • Gamera977

    Yeah, it destroyed my dream of becoming a lighthouse keeper one day…

  • Acethepug

    Loved “Horror of Fang Rock.” So few misses in the Baker era (until the end, IMHO) and so many wonderful memories.

    Thank you for this!

  • David Fullam

    Really need to bring the Rutans back.

    I was hoping that when they wiped out the Daleks in the Time War (sigh….), that would have opened the gates for the galaxy to be devastated by the Sontaran-Rutan War.
