Just been Judoon'd

We're about ten minutes or so away from the concluding part of Prisoner of the Judoon now... and it's all getting very exciting! What with the rather Torchwood: Children of Earth cliffhanger (think the Hub/the attic about to blow) and a strangely seductive Lis Sladen performance...

JUDOON PLATOON (THIS TIME NOT ON THE MOON)!!

But what have you thought of the adventure as a whole? Leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below!

***

Don't forget, there's a number of ways you can catch more Judoon action, if you so require it.

The critters first appeared in the 2007 Doctor Who adventure Smith and Jones - which is available on DVD (both inside the complete series 3 DVD boxset and as an individual release, alongside Gareth Robert's The Shakespeare Code and the rather brilliant - but underrated - Gridlock).

Don't forget, they later reappeared in The Stolen Earth, too!

They've gone on to star in two BBC Books adventures - a Quick Reads novella entitled Revenge of the Judoon (by the Doctor Who legend that is Terrance Dicks) - that you can pick up from all good Waterstones stores for the bargain price of £1.99 - and also the recently released Judgement of the Judoon, the synopsis of which can be read below:

Elvis the King Spaceport has grown into the sprawling city-state of New Memphis - an urban jungle, where organized crime is rife. But the launch of the new Terminal 13 hasn't been as smooth as expected. And things are about to get worse! When the Doctor arrives, he finds the whole terminal locked down! The notorious Invisible Assassin is at work again, and the Judoon troopers sent to catch him will stop at nothing to complete their mission. With the assassin loose on the mean streets of New Memphis, the Doctor is forced into a strange alliance. Together with teenage private-eye Nikki and a ruthless Judoon Commander, the Doctor soon discovers that things are even more complicated - and dangerous - than he first thought!

Finally, the official BBC Doctor Who site contains a Monster File for the species.

Remember!! Prisoner of the Judoon - Part Two airs on BBC One and the BBC HD Channel from 4:35pm. It'll be available on the iPlayer platform for the next week.
