Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later.Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    'Koquillion looks like a man in a rubber suit through the whole story. But that is in no way a clue that he's really a man in disguise. Indeed, the fact that he looks like a man in a rubber suit is, within the context of Doctor Who, extremely convincing evidence that he is not a man in a rubber suit but is, in fact, a monster.'

    Presaged I would suggest by the Voord. Who were nothing but rubber suits. We never saw whatever was inside. And of course the Daleks and the Cybermen are metal suits containing degenerated (as opposed to regenerated) humanoids. Doctor Who is unique in presenting monsters as the sum of thier own disguises. Like the Tardis/police box is just a shell/disguise containing a magic box.

    Popping back in time to say that I just watched this episode with my 24 year old, new series loving friend and he found it entirely charming. Loved Vicki, thought the monster and rocketship designs were super, and never once suspected old Cocky-Lickin' was really Bennett in disguise. (I reiterated the point about fake-looking monster masks leading the viewer into never suspecting that he is, in fact, wearing a fake-looking monster mask, and he thought that was genius.) 50 years on, I'd call that a solid win.
