Planet of the Dead: One of Two New Monsters Revealed

According to the Daily Mirror, one of two new monsters which will feature in Planet of the Dead will be called "the Tritovore". Read on for further details:

From the Daily Mirror
New Tritovore baddies set to be scariest ever. He's dealt with some tough baddies but Doctor Who will face his scariest yet - a half man, half fly creature. Called the Tritovore, it will be unleashed in the Easter special to do battle with the Time Lord and sidekick Lady Christina de Souza - played by former EastEnders star Michelle Ryan.

Bosses want the monster to become as iconic as the Daleks or Cybermen. A set source said: "Scriptwriters are confident they'll make a huge impact... everyone remembers the Daleks and the Cybermen, but not a lot else if they're honest. The Tritovore will change that. They are disgusting and will last long in the memory." Series boss Russell T Davies is hoping to use the creatures in three other special shows. David Tennant quits as the Doctor this year. The source added: "Russell is telling everybody to expect some real surprises. He wants him to go out with a bang."

Planet of the Dead is due to broadcast at Easter on BBC One. In other news: Elisabeth Sladen - best know for playing Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures, celebrates her 61st birthday today.
