shockeye of the quanwncing grig

Having recently learned that a shelved Whovian mini-series had been completed after decades of neglect, called Shada, focusing on the inmates of a maximum security prison planet, we were understandably excited that the first villain in this rogues’ gallery of poorly costumed bad guys was none other than the Cambridge bon-vivant Skagra whose campy uniform consisted of a floppy hat and silver cape with disco pants. From the Monarch to the Movellans (adversarial to the Darleks so I suppose an ally), there’s plenty of nemeses to call to mind as they try to thwart the Doctor and his companions and whose greater crimes may have been against fashion than the balance of power in the Cosmos. Who is your favourite?
