I dunno, not that silly. No worse than some of the creatures in my old copy of Barlowe's Guide to Extraterrestrials. And those were all based on respected SF books.
In the case of illustrations, it always depends on who does the drawing as to how silly they look.

With rubber suits, it depends on who makes them, I guess.

Humans probably look quite ridiculous to a dolphin or an elephant or an octopus.

Of course he'll look more impressive on film. instead of trudging across the yard wondering how long til the bloody lunch break.

It would have been classic to see the monster taking a smoke break

It looks "silly" because it's out of context, most photos like this usually make anything look stupid compared to how it'll eventually appear on screen.
I'm not sure if that could every look serious. I has a little rabbit tail. I can see creases in the suit, especially in the legs. But above all, it looks like it's wearing fucking flares. That monster looks like it has a pair of bastard flares.

Oh no, we can see flaws in the suit of a Doctor Who monster! That has never happened before in fifty years! Head for the hills!

Re: Doctor Who set/on location reports thread

LOL, I have seen worse. I don't think that is a bad costume and it will probably look better on film.

What a lot of fans don't realize was that in the earlier drafts of the screenplay, it was revealed the creatures were females hatched from the same brood.

Yes, they were...



Sincerely,

Will there ever be a statute of limitations on being able to dredge up some low point from decades prior when talking about the new show?

Think of it this way at least it isn't another humanoid with bumps or a tattoo on their face.
