Class Of Who: Terror of the Zygons

An eight-year-old's journey into Classic Who.



Lizze watches Doctor Who: Terror of the Zygons


The Fan Can: Well, what did you think of that one?

Lizzie: I thought it was a bit good. I liked it because it had the Loch Ness Monster in it and I've never ever seen a Loch Ness Monster who eats meat. I thought he was a monster who ate seaweed. I don't know if he's real. He's a mystery monster.


Did you like the Zygons?

I thought they were ugly.


Aren't all monsters ugly?

Some of the aliens the Doctor meets aren't so ugly. You know that mermaid one in the pirate story? She's an alien and she's pretty.


You've not liked Tom Baker much before. Did you like him in that one?

No. He doesn't seem so invincible. He just gets caught all the time. The first time he's getting caught by aliens and the second time he's getting caught by the Loch Ness Monster! He's usually very invincible.


Did you like seeing UNIT?

Who's UNIT?


The army guys. You've seen them loads of times!

Oh. I'd forgotten who the UNIT were. They're cool.


The Brigadier's cool?

Not really him. He wears a kilt! Kilts look ugly on men.


Any bits you particularly liked?

I'd never seen an alien getting into a human. The Slitheen is the only other time I've seen that, except they have to kill the human. The Zygons have very chubby heads. They're really fat heads. Gosh. But their legs and tummies are really skinny. You can see their ribs. For a chubby face their legs are that thin! They're as thin as my legs, and that's too thin for an alien.


So you wouldn't like it if one asked you to marry him?

Don't get into that please.


Okay. Do you like Sarah and Harry as companions?

Sarah Jane was quite young. She didn't look like herself when she was alive.


What about Harry?

Well, if anybody got hurt, he could look after them because his job was a doctor. I didn't like it when he was trying to kill Sarah when he was the Zygon. It's horrible trying to kill somebody. I was expecting him to get her in the tummy and there'd be loads of blood. It's a good job I didn't see that.
