These original Zygons are SOOO much better than Moffat’s bland, flat-faced new versions.

Yes they are, they look so much more slimy and (un)natural. 'Alien like' is the phrase i mean.

Season 13 was just full of classics. Even the weakest of the bunch (Android Invasion) has a fantastic first episode.

New Who has a weird tendency to cartoonise/kiddify Classic Who monsters.

The Daleks for the most part and the Sontarans (at least in The Sontaran Stratagem/Poison Sky, deeply under-rated Story and 2nd best Sontaran design behind Linx) aside I'd sadly have to agree. The Cybermen initially were a victim of this as well until World Enough and Time/The Doctor Falls (their worst appearance being the horrible Nightmare in Silver: Matt was the one saving grace in that Chibnall written Story, God forbid it had the current TARDIS crew instead).

To be honest i thought the Sontarans were very cartoon like in their look, it was primarily them and the Zygons i thought of when IanK came up with the word.
