    Neil Gamera?

  • Time to officially bring back the Zygons.

    Ken, did you get the email I sent you? The photos probably weren’t large enough for you to use but I thought I’d check to make sure it didn’t end up in your spam folder.

    Reptlicus, the early eons.

  • Cullen Waters

    I love this guy. So much better than the hand puppet they use later in the story…

  • COOL!!!! What in the world is this?

  • Beckoning Chasm

    The Zygons definitely illustrated PT Barnum’s adage that there’s a sucker born every minute.

  • Gamera977

    It’s from the Fourth Doctor episode ‘Terror of the Zygons.’ The Zygons were aliens living at the bottom of Loch Ness and this was the monster or as the Zygons called it the Skarasen. The Zygons were some of IMHO the coolest Who aliens ever, too bad in many scenes the Skarasen is very clearly a sock puppet…

  • Wow, and to think I can remember when Famous Monsters of Filmland used to sell copies of the novelization of that episode in the back along with all those other weird books. Thanks for reminding me of that!

  • Gamera977

    Thank BC and CW, it’s been so long since I’ve seen the episode I didn’t recognize the critter until they named it!

  • Thanks for the info! That is one nifty monster!

  • Wasn’t there a Stingray episode with the Loch Ness Monster? I’d like to see that as MOTD. In fact, those fish-men would make a good MOTD as well….
