To quote the great man "I've never seen such an incredible bunch". Where are the quarks in that lot? Or the mechonoids?

They also forgot to mention the might krotons

This is funny in one article they said the Slitheen and Sontarans shouldn't return. Yet in another article they said they should return. As for my choice it would be the Yeti, a far better monster than the Hath.

Who came up with that list????

Only new enemy out of that lot who could do with a second outing is The Sycorax.
On another planet since they are forbidden from scavenging on earth, The Doctor could meet them off world and the Tardis arrival could set them off.

The new Doctor has to face either the Daleks or Cybermen in his first series, to make him 'official' in the eyes of the younger audience (that's how it usually works anyway). Other than that I'd give The Master another shot tbh, have Simm's version regenerate so we can get a new spin on an old enemy too.

Just my two cents

Sontaraans, yes. Sycorax BIG YES. Judoon...YES YES YES....

Please no more Silurians, they're the most boring things since the show returned.....good that they keep Dinosaurs around though

And yes, it is time The Master made a reappearance. He's missed a whole regeneration now. Not like him

I say Celestial Toymaker. I though he was a great villain, and I'd love to see what could be done with him today.

I don't agree with most of that list except the Sontarans.
I'd quite like to see another proper Sontaran episode where the Sontarans are the enemy with a plan the Doctor must stop.
Strax is amusing, but I'd still like to see some proper serious Sontarans.

The Master should also return. Considering the 50th might have some scenes set on Gallifrey during the Time War, perhaps he will?
However, if he does return please for the love of goodness can he not be an insane hungry skeleton master who fires bolts of lightning or a camp and useless villain who does nothing but cackle and fail at killing the Doctor like Ainley was. A Master a bit more like Delgado or Jacobi's brief appearance or even Simm in Series 3 would be best. Someone you can take seriously as a threat, but who is amusing at the same time.

Other than that though, more imaginative and new enemies are a must. I want to see a new enemy which could go down in Doctor Who history as being on of the best.

Sutekh / the Osirians
The Axons
The Jagaroth
The Terileptils
Sil

Perhaps a Raston Robot or two.

Why on earth would we want to see the Slitheen (the other word is too long) again? Or the Hath for that matter?

My five would be;

Zygons
Omega
The Rani (played by Tilda Swinton)
Sil
The Mara

Well, from that list the only one I agree with is the Sontarans. I agree with the mention of Strax and how it would be interesting to see how he would react if he had to go against his own people.

As for other returning villains, I think an episode or two set on Mars involving both the Ice Warriors and the Flood would be great. A Classic series villain could be the Sea Devils maybe? Or some of the others mentioned already.

Since the Zygons and Daleks are confirmed for the 50th, I think the Doctor should face the Cybermen in the next series, or the Master, as it'd also be nice to have a break from the Daleks and Cybermen for a series. The Master is due a return now that we're moving on to Twelve. Simm is great but to be honest his Master should be Ten's adversary only, I agree with the Master regenerating again.

The 60's have had the Daleks, Cybermen, Ice Warriors, Great Intelligence and Macra to represent it. The 70's the Master, Autons, Sontarans, Zygons and Silurians.

Eight years in it's probably time the eighties got some monster love.

What a crap list!

The only ones on that list for me are the Sontarans! The rest are very forgettable!

Had it not been for Hide in Series 7, I would have liked the idea of seeing the Gelth again in an eerie ghost or zombie story.

But for me, it has to be the Reapers... there is so much potential there for more storylines.

I count everyone except Pertwee and McCoy on that list, and McCoy did the Rani.

Here's what I want: a full year with no returning monsters at all. I think I'm in the wrong thread. Apologies!

Series 6 is probably the closest you'll find to that. Only the Cybermen got an episode of there own and beyond that it was left down to cameos from Daleks and Oods now and again. For the most part, it was original content.

We need a proper 'new' dalek story. Perhaps they can have some sort of civil war with the 'inferior' daleks and the doctor lands in the middle of it?
Sontarans- definitely.

Davros needs to return as well if he is not involved in the 50th special.

Moffat's too obsessed with his own monsters to ever bring back something from the RTD era. We're lucky he even agreed to use the Daleks or Cybermen.

Moffat has already brought back loads of even older 'classic' mosnters, so I don't think we can paint him with that brush. Of course he likes his own monsters, but he loves the classic ones as well.

Yes! The Cybermen! They just haven't had a decent story, Nightmare In Silver wasn't a bad episode but it was quite disappointing. I feel like they need their equivalent of Asylum Of The Daleks, it was such a fantastic episode, The Cybermen need something like that.
