31 Classic Doctor Who Monsters #14: Kroll

October 14th, 2012

Monsters are a big part of Doctor Who, and they don’t come any bigger than the tentacled terror of the third moon of Delta Magna…


The Power of Kroll (1978)

Kroll began life as just a run-of-the mill giant squid until the fateful day he devoured the holy relic of the Swampies who had been forcibly relocated to Delta III. The Swampies were unaware that their religious symbol was actually a disguised segment of the all-powerful Key to Time, hidden in the Delta Magna system after the Key was split into six pieces for safekeeping.

The energy of the Key segment caused the cephalopod to grow to enormous size, topping out at a mile wide. The Swampies dubbed it Kroll and worshipped it as a god. Meanwhile, the large quantities of methane it excreted drew human harvesters to Delta III. That’s right, the “power of Kroll” was squid farts.

Tomorrow: You’ll never make a monkey out of them!
