    I always remember fondly the giant maggots from the Green Death.

    Meanwhile, my If I Were Showrunning Dr Who bucket list includes the idea of having Quarks as recurring villains. They’ve developed a garbage-in-garbage-out problem, and keep coming up with insane plans to Conquer The World/The Galaxy/The Universe which have no hope of succeeding, but which will cause huge amounts of collaterol damage and which the Doctor has to step in and put a stop to about once every 1 or 2 seasons. First scheme: take the process they used to create giants wasps (from that TV Comic story way back in the late 60s) and use it to try an conquer London with giant kittens. Yes, just like in the old Goodies episode ‘Kitten Kong’. Only because this is Doctor Who, with more people being killed and eaten off camera.

    I was impressed that you managed to get through a whole episode about “things bigger than they should be” and not one mention of “The one with the maggots”! :),

    Then I started thinking about things like the Vespiform which you mentioned of course, Erato in “The Creature from the Pit”, and the Krynoid growing to cover an entire mansion.

    I wonder if kids are more used to the whole “Growing monster to Kaiju size” thing because it’s a basic plot in every “Power Rangers” episode ever?
