Giant Squids Have Feelings Too!

Okay, here's something that always bugged me about the otherwise awesome "Key to Time" miniseries on Doctor Who. The Doctor and Romana practically cream in their jeans over the injustice of trapping princess Astra, but they didn't give two shits that the same fate awaits Kroll, the giant squid. Maybe he had friends and family, squid hopes and squid dreams, he had every right to live his giant squid life as Astra did. But since he wasn't a pretty blonde, no one - not even the Doctor - cared.

But then again, Tom Baker wasn't planning to marry the actress.
