    Suppose the Angels come back. The Doctor ensures a stable lightsource so they can clearly see the Angels ... phew, problem solved.
    Hang on ... does that angel ... have two shadows?
    The Angels tame or otherwise enslave the Vashta Nerada ... when the lights are off, the Angels get you, when the lights are on, the Vashta Nerada get you.

    If anyone tries to bring back the Vashta Nerada, it would have to be as an obstacle rather than a primary antagonist. Sort of like what they did with the waters in The Ghost Monument, except anyone that has seen the two-parter already know what the threat is and it doesn't seem as toothless. Wouldn't work in the established backstory for the planet in TGM because Vashta Nerada are a natural occurrence instead of something created in a lab (and it would affect the runtime since they'd require more effort to survive than just building a boat...), but in another story with a similar structure it might work.

    Is there a reason these are all RTD era villains?
    Part of the reason I don't think think they'll be back is because they are from the RTD era. When Moffat was in charge, I don't think he brought anything back from those seasons. He could've brought back Capt. Jack etc. but he just sort of faded with the RTD era being over.
    Chibnall being in charge might change that or it might not.

    Just pointing out that one of the best Classic stories was a prequel where you already knew the outcome; Genesis of the Daleks.
    Not only was it a positive treatment of the recurring villain (Daleks) but it also introduced another one (Davros).
    A prequel has great potential to go badly but if it is done right the result can be golden.

    I have my own theory about 'The Beast', one that hints it may already have been a returning enemy. It's mainly due to a visual thing - when you see the body of the beast, it's got two jars or flasks acting as part of its prison. It's also described (as far as I remember) as the epitome of evil - essentially, evil personified.
    There's a villain from the end of the classic series which shares these traits: Fenric. Fenric is described as what was left of one of two primordial forces - Good and Evil - he is the surviving shadow that remained of Evil after these first two forces were shattered as the universe is created. During a prior encounter, the Doctor manages to trap it in a flask that looks somewhat like the ones in The Satan Pit.
    Possibly this is a coincidence, possibly it was just a homage by the writers, but I've always chosen to believe that The Beast was either Fenric, still clinging to existence after his physical form was killed in 'The Curse of Fenric', or it was another shard of that original Evil. Either way, I see it as a returning villain, whether the Doctor realises it or not :-)

    There should be a two parter where they all show up on the Tardis out of apparently nowhere, and the doctor has to face them all one by one over the span of like 5-10-20 minutes, and then the next one pops up, and then the doctor finds the source of the problem, and stops it

    Issue is these enemies are all from such great episodes and are all from a long way back now. In order to justify bringing them back the show would need a really good reason, and need to do them even better than last time, which wont happen. These are from some of the show's best episodes since 2005, they won't be outdone easily.

    Though I agree the beast itself shouldnt be brought back maybe they could bring it up in the future. Like the Doctor discovers a cult dedicated to it's worships who have nefarious goals, or pherhaps a being related to it. Just go full lovecraft.

    I think I disagree with your Vashna Narada one. The alien concept is lovely and I think a stroy COULD work with them again.
    Think about the Weeping Angels. I would have concluded they were a one off before, but they worked in the big ship one and didn't so much in the New York one if I remember right (rewatching and I haven't got back to there).
    Now I'm not a Dr Who writer and it shows, but the only story I can think using them is someone who is *using* the Vashna Narada for something. Say a maze of shadows as a trial or a prison. Infact that could be the name "Maze of Shadows". Or using them as a weapon where Jodie has to lure them off earth or something and night time is a death sentence so she is racing the sun, and the ep could be titled "Sundown". I think they DEFINATELY have potential and I would like to see them again.
    Also, if I remember right, the Doctor is the one who defined the Vashna Narada which suggests they are at large in the universe... so the cannon works, whereas for the rest you brought up they had to learn about each of them.

      I need to clarify in future videos that I give a pass to these characters recurring in audio or novel, because the approach to presenting them has to be inherently different and the lack of recycled visual elements that comes with bringing them back on the show makes it more palatable.

    On the Vashta Nerada, in Silence in the Library we're seeing a creature out of its ecosystem. Like an invasive species taken in land without predators it has reproduced beyond normal to become very dangerous. But that begs the question what keeps the Vashta Nerada in check in its proper ecosystem? If the Vashta Nerada are a hive mind a highly defensive of their territory, what is that in response to? What eats the shadow that melt flesh? I think there is something of interest to explore there. Not using the Vashta Nerada as a villain again but as the thing under threat from something else. What is the Caiman (a type of amazonian crocodile) to the piranha like Vashta Nerada?

    Davros should never have returned after “Genesis of the Daleks”. His apparent death at the end of that should have been his actual death, because that was an excellent and fitting end to the “Genesis” story.

    Agree with all five.
    I'd add we should leave out Daleks and Cyber Men for a while. Maybe I'd think differently if I'd grown up on the classics, but I thought some of the five offered more as a fearful villain. Also, Tim Shaw was good but how has the doctor missed him if this is a regular hunt? That's probably a hint he'll return.

    i agree about the flood, overhyped zombie archetype.
    The family of blood is an awesome vilain and must be left as they are. Because all the meaning of the plot would be nullified if they bring them back.
    the shadow that eat people got their own full story, again awesome story arc, but you can't bring them back without limiting them. And it would be repetitive.
    I was certain you would mention the Beast but the story should be awesomely written just to justify how it can survive and get out of a Black Hole. This story remind me a little of Lovecraft's Chtuhlu, a big bad one who can't die but can be jailed.
    Midnight was a GREAT behind closed doors story. limited characters, it was awesome for a filler story. I consider the vilain of the story, again, as a Lovecrat entity. lovecraft wrote his story with one thing in mind: never explain everything because your imagination can't surpass your reader's one, let him imagine a thing worse than everything you'll find and it's why the mindnight entity is awesome: we don't know anything about it.

    They brought the Family of Blood back in Tales of Terror - Blood Will Out. This story really ramped up the threat, but the ending felt rushed.
    There's a couple of audio stories with the Vashta Nerada. One feels like a copy of Silence in the Library, the other is more interesting (but it's an idea I had before myself - using the Vashta Nerada as bioweapons). (I think they're called the Night/Day of the Vashta Nerada).
    The Beast appears in Torchwood - End of Days. Which means he probably left the black hole through the Rift.
    I guess only the Flood and the Midnight Entity didn't come back (that I know of). But there are people who theorize the Midnight entity is the Great Intelligence, and it came to Earth to copy people in Snowmen.

    • Council of Geeks

      I should clarify in these, that I'm more open to further exploring some of these in audio, comic, or novel format. If only because the different medium would (hopefully) force the writers to use the creatures in a slightly different way.

    The Flood would be good to tie with the Ice Warriors. Perhaps it's some spaceship that's travelled to Mars, accidentally picked it up, is continuing to travel when they're attacked by the Ice Warriors, but the Ice Warriors stop attacking when they discover that the Flood is onboard because they also had to deal with them on Mars. Something like that

    I agree with 3 of these, but not the Flood, there is potential for another story using water as a potetial thread, and the Vashta Nerada was brought back on audio twice, one was a prequel and the other one was like a Jurassic Park story but with shadows instead of Dinosaurs.The prequel was ok, and the JP was interesting but those didnt quite work on audio.

Maybe, if she's stuck on Earth for a few episodes UNIT (without Kate and the recent backstory) might be used, but nothing more. Make the now mandatory Dalek story season 12.

Even if they are two different entities, they definitely share some significant similarities.

    I do think they could bring the Vashta Nerada back for one more story. Like, they land in one of their forests and have to survive but this time they can't negotiate with them or anything like that since they don't have the data ghost stuff and they wouldn't suspect anything at first since there would be no face...things to warn them about shadows and the lack of people wouldn't tip them off. Like idk, I feel like there is enough there that it could work for one more story and then be done

The idea of pulping trees all that time into the future was also dumb. They could extract and compile atoms to create paper without a tree even being part of the chain.

      Council of Geeks Its a big devil the principle remains they used a very similar if not identical (as in its on the PC of the CGI dev) and they used it again albeit under another title. The point was how can they use it again? And in my opinion they did... They had to rename it cos the first one was destroyed in the Black Hole. This is all pedantic anyway I think LOL! But I do not really want to see it a third time so I kinda agree with you! ;)

  • Warren Marris

    @Council of Geeks Oooooooh! Interesting video... Fuck I am going to comment on each:
    The Flood: Must say i 100% agree with you and, much as many fans will be pissed of with me - They had a set story context! They worked in that one story because there was actually just more than them that were an enemy... This was one of very few times where teh Doctor Himself was actually an Enemy... First by not wanting to act as it was a 'Fixed point in time Event' - A Place he was NEVER meant to be and could not change... To him finally deciding that he would CHANGE HISTORY only for that to bit him on the arse...
    The Flood are established as being parasites of MARS, There is no logical or reasonable way for them to come back... And, Yeah I am going to agree... They are just bloody Zombies, with a cross into Vashta Nerada only Water based not air... And they don't eat people...
    They were a BRILLIANT villain for their time, but they only work in that one story context... Trying to take them further would actually become a major issue and diminish them as... Well, The next logical step would be a highly Populated area... World War W... Thats World War Z with WATER!!!
    NOPE! NOPE! NOPE! Great Villain but there time is done... Leave them back on mars PLEASE!

    • Warren Marris
      Warren Marris 21 hari yang lalu

      The Midnight Entity: Once again, ABSOLUTELY! I know fans love these creatures but they all work best in Self Contained Episodes... Anything that keeps fans talking is WONDERFUL... And to try and bring them back wounds their impact...
      I would actually like to hear what One Time Villains you think SHOULD come back...

      And I am going to throw this out there - The Abzorbaloff... Yes that episode, Love and Monsters was divisive - I personally enjoyed it as a break from the norm, It was stupid and dumb... Totally ridiculous....
      But the race itself does have POTENTIAL! And after the Doctor destroyed Davros' Reality Bomb... Clom is back where it belongs... There is a possibility that the Doctor COULD meet the race once more... Just NO PETER KAY!!!!
      OK! Lets be honest, Bringing them back as Villains may be a stretch... But bringing them back at all, Why Not? Make them less goofy which was a Peter Kay Standard... And maybe even needing teh Doctors help... They are a creature that could return in many ways, not as a villain but as something!

      Vashta Nerada: I think one reason why people want them back is that the BBC did manage to successfully include them in an Online Game in the 'Doctor Who Adventures' Series... I believe it was teh third or forth Episode... I know the first was a Daleks Episode and then Cybermen... Yeah, I played them!
      They are a great Villain and DAMN SCARY... But they are definitely context sensitive... And Airbourne Carnivorous Parasite, but the fact they have not consumed the entire universe also suggests they themselves have a predator that stops them being a Universe ending threat... So you would have to create some kind of context that allows them to roam more freely... And like you say, that means removing the mystery of them...
      They could indeed come back, but it would have to be yet another self contained story... Short one offs that Mimic the feel of Alien... Personally, I do not feel that teh Who Team currently have that kind of ability in writing and they would be wasted... Again, I 100% agree!

    • Warren Marris
      Warren Marris 21 hari yang lalu

      The Family of Blood: WHY would anyone want these folks to come back? Sorry but why? They had a wonderful self contained story arc... I think there is only actually ONE member of teh family that could even remotely be bought back as well from what I recall of the episode... The Doctor ENSURED they could never threaten him again as what he may do at that time if they did would be beyond thinking...
      I know it was early in Nu-Who history as well, so while they terrified me when they first appeared, I watch now and I actually don't find them that compelling... I find I 100% agree with you here... Some stories are better as one offs and thats it... This is one of them!

    I don't really see why it's bad to "do the same thing again" tbh. That's kinda what we get from recurring villains too after all, like the Cybermen or Daleks. They aren't really ever INTERESTING by themselves because baseline, Cybermen want to reconfigure humanity, Daleks want to exterminate other species, and so on, what makes their episodes interesting is how different characters interact with them. Different incarnations of the Doctor, different companions and supporting cast members. Not every story is plotdriven, and many of the antagonists you named could make for a good tense backdrop for a more human character drama fueled by the danger they pose.
    Maybe not the Midnight entity, who's entire draw LIES in the mystery, but stuff like the Flood, totally.

    I really don't get why you people love Midnight. I thought it sucked then, I thought it sucked later when I was rewatching the whole season and saw it again, and now I know why it sucks is because RTD wrote the episode, and wasn't just the producer. He loves to create mysteries that are intended to have no answer. He thinks that makes him clever.

    While I'm also against bringing back The Beast for reasons that I didn't like the original story, if getting sucked into the black hole doesn't kill him, then he will eventually escape. It is confirmed that black holes lose mass over time, which means at some point they may become small enough to explode or something, and begin their cycle again.

    Great video - thanks! You mentioned Davros in passing. IMHO, he should NEVER have been brought back, as great a character as he is. He met a perfect demise when his creations turned on him - totally unexpectedly for him, apparently. Then in "Destiny of the Daleks," oh guess what - he suspected treachery and wasn't really dead! I think the writers got far more mileage out of Davros than they should have - and he became rather too much of a ranting one dimensional character.

    I think that the take-away really, is that for a villain to work in a recurring role, it has to be a sentient being or race that has motivations that are at least somewhat "normal" for humans--a desire for power, wealth, etc. They can work in a recurring role because they can come back with a new plan. With a non-sentient antagonist like the Flood (I hesitate to call an apparently non-sentient entity a villain), they can't really have a different plan, so as you say, all you can do with them is repeat what you did before.

    I will say that I agree for the most part on all of these my one exception is the family of blood. I think if you used a different member of the same species that could work

    Yep - definitely leave the Midnight Entity - we never need to see it again. The Doctor should have gone for therapy after that encounter.

    Hi Nathaniel! I enjoy watching your videos, and I would love to hear your thoughts on the following: Why are so many alien species seemingly afraid of The Doctor? And do we, the viewers, buy into it?
    Please keep up the great work on your very interesting videos! Friendly greetings, and a loving viking headbutt, from Denmark ;-)

      Why? Because Moffat over-extended the Doctor's importance within the universe of the show. Davies did that a little too by the time he closed out, but Moffat ran with it and now the Doctor has become so omnipresent that every other species already knows who he is. Not something I like to dwell on because I don't like it. It's that I don't buy it, I just don't like it.

    The vashta nerada could totaly come back and still be awsome they would make more sense as a secondary threat in a scenario similar to the ridick with the doctor being johns and the main threat being ridick and the vashta nerada being those venomous things that have to stay in water but instead of water its a forest and obviously those suits are gone.
    But it would be way to cheesy to make the main threat not have flesh to begin with that way its imune to their effects so hope they don't do that.
    Also what entity the doctor and sky just had a really bad case of conversion disorder like that episode of house md where the guy had the bends and everyone else started to show symptom you think about being sick long enough you start showing symptoms, shame how that ended up for sky and the stewardess.

    I also say no more Daleks - but also no Cybermen and no Master/Missy. I would say for good, but an extended break would be enough for now. I know these were not one time villains as the video addresses but I've had enough of these villains for a long time.
    Tom Baker's Doctor only had 2 Daleks episodes, 1 Cybermen episode and 3 Master episodes over 7 years. This was one of the things that set him apart and made him the best Doctor.

    With the Vesta Nerada they could easily have a group of humans in the forests as the doctor mentions that they are on earth, maybe they could have an infestation of them and give them new features like maybe they can now have a 3D form or something, it's just a new concept that might make them more of a threat but idk tbh

    The Weeping Angels should never have been brought back. Talk about ruining good monsters. And I think the Master was more over-used in New Who than he was in Classic Who, and he was overused a lot in Jon Pertwee's run. Also, Moffat and his fetish for dark haired villainesses with updos was getting past the point of ridiculous. That man has a type, and he liked to let you know it!
