It's almost as if everybody has put the "Fat Bastard" monster out of their memories. You know, the monster from "Love and Monsters" that looked, acted, and sounded like the Austin Powers villain Fat Bastard? That was only in season 2 of NuWho.
C'mon, I mentioned it...

You even used it's real name!

Yeah the notion that that new monster is the worst of NuWho is frankly ludicrous. And actually, all things considered, I think the worst monster of NuWho hasn't even been a man in a suit, it was the terrible cgi Mark Gatiss Thang from The Lazarus Experiment.

There's no way this monster is as bad/silly as the Slitheen or the Jodoon.

I wish the Draconians would show up in the new series. I've always thought they were worth revisiting, and have a cool design that would benefit from more modern prosthetics technology. I'd also love to see more of the Robots from "The Robots of Death," with the original design unchanged (though improved in the execution).

On the other hand, a couple I wouldn't mind seeing brought back with a better redesign would be the Wirrn and the Rutans.

For all we know, this alien isn't the main threat in the episode, and only makes a brief appearance. Or he could be some poor, misunderstood good alien that the Doctor and Clara are helping out. Or he's the threat in a lighter, more comedic episode.

It could literally be anything at this point.

I kinda give that one a pass. Considering the silly tone of the story, I suspect it was meant to look goofy.

Going through that list, we are totally overdue for a modernized Garm!

Well, it was designed by a child for a Blue Peter contest.

Probably would have been less annoying if it hadn't been Peter Kay into the bargain...

This. Though these days we'd likely get a CGI Rutan. Though there is the potential for some creepy mid-transformation makeups.

Really though, I'd love to see the show bring back some of the older, more crap alien designs and do them up properly with modern SFX.
Personally I'd love to see if they could pull off a realistic Alpha Centauri.

Well, isn't that the point? Rutans are completely nonhumanoid, basically jellyfish creatures. The one attempt we've seen to realize them onscreen was very disappointing due to the limited technology of the time. CGI would allow a much better-looking creature.

Oh, definitely. That's one that could be a really cool animatronic/suit effect.

Dunno about "without the claws", especially from the second take, but it does look different in Capaldi's hands. Maybe it's the same prop and Capaldi just has bigger hands..?

I hate it when that happens, especially when it is one of those stupid monsters that the doctor and Clara try to help. Classic Moffat, one of the main reasons I hate him, because he does monsters like that all the time.
