Awful politicians and their 1972-81 Doctor Who counterparts

Winner: any game where you get to compare Boris Johnson with a giant maggot is well worth playing.

Well done to Sarah Dempster for bringing this satirical fun to Twitter!

Of course, you may not agree that the politicians mentioned are as awful as all that, but the comparisons are – well, see for yourself:

That’s Kate Hoey looking rather like Scaroth of the Jagaroth there.

And here’s Sajid Javid’s impression of a Sontaran warrior…

… followed by a flattering comparison for Priti Patel – with Eldrad, owner of The Hand of Fear.

Next, a rather obvious comparison between Nigel Farage and a Sea Devil…

… but the attempt to link Matt Hancock with a regenerative Fifth Doctor is inexcusable. Foul, I say!

The thread gets right back on track with this link between Theresa May and Dalek creator Davros. They could have been separated at birth!

… and while the comparison with Styggron of the Kraals is accurate, I’ve lost track of who the human being actually is.

Dominic Raab and the Melkur? Well, he is a bit stiff…

… and we’ll just have to call her ‘Adric’ Foster from now on.

This one’s a ‘gimme’: Boris Johnson and a yeti:

Rather wonderfully, other people have taken up the baton and made their own links:

This one could run and run (like Doctor Who itself, in fact)…

    This is hilarious, but in my opinion, some of the monsters are better looking. The female Eldrad from ‘The Hand of Fear’ is definitely more attractive than Priti Patel, just as the Robot of Death is better looking than Jacob Rees-Mogg. But a giant maggot does work for Boris spiritually as well as physically.
