We keep hearing people say they want the Rani, or the Black Guardian, or Sil to return, and why not? They were interesting characters, so it would be interesting and popular characters.

But what about some of the less-known? The enemies who only appeared once, and were never given any sort of mention again?

What are some of the little-known enemies that would make most people ask "who?", that you would like to see return?

For me, it would be the Voord, and Drahvins.

The Reaper's from Father's Day. An interesting 'enemy', but more of a natural threat. Creatures that live within the time vortex itself, which presents plenty of references to the Timelords without actually having to bring them back.

I think they had a brilliant design and are definitely deserving of a powerful story...maybe even a two-parter if they were to be reinstated. I imagine the effects team could spruce them up quite a bit too by now

I can't think of anyone that was both brilliant enough that I'd like to see them again but not so brilliant that a second appearance would diminish them.

E.g. too brilliant (and probably not sufficiently obscure anyway): Taren Kapel, Sharaz Jek.

So, ummm, The Master of the Land of Fiction? A trip back there would be no bad thing.

The Raston Warrior Robot, sadly though I don't think they would make them as violent now, I doubt beheading cybermen or generating spears to throw through an enemies chest is child friendly these days.

Tractaors - they were so restricted by that costume it would be good to see them being more mobile.

Good old Ken Dodd! He was hardly an enemy though, was he?

Not really but maybe his experience with the Doctor could have turned him evil

I'd definaltey be up for a trip back to the land of fiction- 100%

Other enemies I'd like to see return would include the Kandyman but in a more dark way and the Axons

Another trip to Peladon would be great though aswell

I'd like those guys with the cubes from power of 3 to return.

Only so they could reveal that all the cubes did was make everyone have some sort of dream, so what they thought was happening, didn't. That might then help explain a few things?

The Voord...just so they can adapt Grant Morrison's comic story where they turn out to be Mondassian Cybermen (really)

The Prawn from The Invisible Enemy







Okay, serious time: The Krynoids. Seeds of Doom is probably my favourite Classic Who story and there might be more they could do with the Krynoids. Another favourite of mine is The Curse of Fenric so maybe they could do some more with Fenric?
Another enemy I'd really like to see return would be the Ogri. I felt they didn't quite live up to their potential in The Stones of Blood and there's a lot more you could do with them without the silly space criminal and law robots.

I'd like those guys with the cubes from power of 3 to return.
Actually that's a good point. I thought the Shakri were brilliantly sinister and had so much potential...but instead they were given 3 minutes screen time before the Doctor blew them up with his sonic screwdriver.

Not exactly an enemy from the past - but one we haven't seen yet: 'Zodin' has been mentioned by the 2nd and 6th Doctors - I'm curious to know what she is like! :confused

Just read a novel which revisits the Celestial Toymaker. Although the original episode is lost, it would still be a comeback, and I think there could be some very interesting plots, entering into The Doctor and/or his companions' psyche.

One of the 'lost stories' from Colin Baker's cancelled second season involved the Celestial Toymaker fighting the Doctor and Peri in Blackpool. It was to be called The Nightmare Fair (which might be the novel you've just read) and Big Finish turned it into an audio adventure a couple of years ago (so you can basically hear what the story would have been like).

The format would have to go back to multiple 30 min ones, 45 wouldn't be long enough if he came back.

The Dominators. I'd like to see a modern take on humans trapped inside large leather chair backs.
