The Zygons Return for DOCTOR WHO 50th Anniversary Special

Well, well, well...So one classic Doctor Who monster made it.  I wonder what happened to the others...

Just days after revealing that David Tennant and Billie Piper will be returning for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special, the BBC has just announced that classic monsters the Zygons will be returning as well.  The picture to the left was posted on their official website as well as Twitter, showing very little redesign to their original costume and makeup.

One of the most-requested monsters yet to return to Doctor Who, the Zygons have only appeared on television in the 1975 Fourth Doctor story "Terror of the Zygons."  They did, however, appear in the Eighth Doctor audio adventures The Zygon Who Fell to Earth and Death in Blackpool from Big Finish.  Also, they received mentions in Eleventh Doctor stories "The Pandorica Opens" and "The Power of Three."

This news follows on word that Gavin & Stacey actress Joanna Page will join John Hurt as guest-stars in the special.
