- Deinonychus says, "Feathers are as cool as bow ties and fezzes!"
A friendly–or, at least, not overly aggressive–Triceratops helps the Doctor and friends out of a few tight spots. Like the ankylosaurs, though, the ceratopsid is a little bit too tubby and doesn’t run quite right. A Triceratops is not a horse.
Vincent points out:
[The creatures] that everyone referred to as 'raptors'... Alas, Doctor Who trotted out the usual silly Jurassic Park-esque bunny-handed monstrosities, virtually devoid of feathers.
Obviously these critiques are meant tongue-in-cheek, although io9 (which quotes Switek's post) notes that the episode "totally wasted its chance to make feathered dinosaurs cool." TOO TRUE.
