Axos & Allies (Sharpening “The Claws of Axos,” with guest Nathan Bottomley)

Invading the Earth used to be so simple: Either land or crash your spaceship in Britain, wait for the local Time Lord to show up, then coerce them into helping you by threatening the people they care about. But it gets a little complicated when two Time Lords show up, which was oddly the norm back in the UNIT days, what with the Master constantly trying to both one-up the Doctor and do some invading/conquering/destroying of his own. It’s enough to confuse even the most determined alien menace, but you’re probably particularly vulnerable if you’re a gestalt entity with a penchant for psychological attacks that resemble a bad acid trip. We’re looking at you, Axons. The Claws of Axos might be deeply embedded in the Earth’s crust, but we get the feeling its heart just isn’t in this.
