MEET THE REAL-LIFE DOCTOR WHO MONSTERS

Looka-Yikes

DOCTOR WHO is back on Saturday to face an army of alien adversaries.

They are being billed as the scariest, squirmiest set of monsters ever seen on our TV screens - but we think some of them look horribly, horribly familiar.

Yes, the BBC's writers have created the catalogue of cruel creatures by finding their inspiration a bit closer to home than distant planets in galaxies far, far away.

CAROLINE PALMER imagines real life lookalike inspirations behind the monster mugs.

LADY CASSANDRA & ANNE ROBINSON

THE skin on this weird baddie's face is stretched so tightly that smiling would clearly be a huge challenge - if she had a sense of humour, of course.

And we're sure that mean Cassandra has exactly the same problems you do, Anne.

SLITHEEN & MIKE CARROLL

SLITHEENS disguise themselves as humans in suits sealed with hidden zips across the forehead. If Burberry made one, do you think Lotto lout Carroll would give it a go or just the finger, as usual?

THE ADHERENTS OF THE REPEATED MEME & QUEEN

IT remains to be seen if these frightening aliens from the future can do the fandango. But these sinister, super-powered beings who want to destroy our planet ore certain to send shivers down your spine. It's enough to send you GaGa.

THE BIRD PEOPLE THE CHEEKY GIRLS SPARK

THEY squawk like birds and by the looks of it they eat like them, too. Maybe they even have a tribute act called the Beaky Girls.

So if the, er, "singing" work ever dries up, the Cheeky Girls could migrate out of the solar system (please).

SPARK PLUG & LIAM GALLAGHER

HERE'S a monster that proves even aliens in anoraks can be just as scary as some creatures that already inhabit the earth.

We hope Liam can still squeeze into his old parka as Plug & Co revive the furry hood fashion invasion.

THE MOXX OF BALHOON & JADE GOODY

LOOKS like kebab bellies are an inter-galactic problem. Maybe The Moxx would like help from Jade's plastic surgeon. She has better boobs, but it would be a close thing if there was a vote to see who should be evicted from Earth.
