Two Zygons from 1975's Terror of the Zygons

Banks Stewart: “More Classic Monsters in 50th”

Robert Banks Stewart – the writer of classic Doctor Who serials Terror of the the Zygons and The Seeds of Doom – has revealed there will be more monsters than just the Zygons in the 50th anniversary special…

Speaking recently, Stewart said

The Zygons are in there with all the others – particularly the Daleks and the Cybermen.

While the Dalek’s and the Cybermen’s involvement was never in doubt what’s yet to be confirmed is just what will unite multiple Doctors and which of their other ancient foes will be menacing the celebrations (bring back the Master!):

[But] nobody yet knows what the plot of the 50th will be – Steven Moffat and his team in Cardiff, they are quite rightly keeping it all secret.

He also added that he felt the modern incarnation of the show was ‘too adult’

My own personal opinion is that the modern Doctor Who should be aimed more at children. People very fondly remembered being scared by Doctor Who – now the plots seem to me a little too adult.

So who would you like to see facing the Doctors in the anniversary special? Do you agree that Doctor Who has stepped too far away from its remit of making its audience cower behind the sofa in terror? And is The Seeds of Doom really for children?
