Capaldi reveals which classic monsters he wants back in ‘Doctor Who’

Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi says there are several monsters from the show’s classic era that he’d like to see return.

In his two seasons as the Doctor so far, the actor has taken on the Daleks, the Cybermen, Davros, the Zygons and the Master (now regenerated as Missy).

In a new video on the official Doctor Who YouTube channel, Capaldi commented: “There’s lots of wonderful Doctor Who monsters I like. I’d like to see the Daemons [return], they were an extraordinary sort of precursor to the Weeping Angels.”

He also revealed: “I’d like the Axons to come back.”

He added: “I love the Autons too! I’d like to have a go at the Autons, I think we should have them back, they’re great. I think we should make them very, very beautiful and sort of Harrods mannequins. Because we tend to get a bit sort of lumpy Poundshop mannequins as Autons. We should get elegant Vogue model type [ones], that’d be quite creepy and quite glamorous too.”

Which classic monsters would you like to see in the next season? Let us know below…

    Autons came back in 2 épisodes of the 2005 serie : in Rose, the first episode, and in the Pandorica overture (end of 5th) where Rory is an Auton.

  • Wlfric

    I’m really surprised that “The Beast” from “The Satan Pit” hasn’t made a comeback. An evil entity predating time itself that was beaten in two episodes and never heard from again while the campy “Master” and the deadly pepper-pot “Daleks” keep surviving the Doctor over and over again over 50 years?

    Weeping Angels please. Moffat’s said he’s done all he wants to with them so let’s see how another writer handles them. And can we have someone follow up on their connection to the Time Lords (hinted at in The End of Time)?
