Doctor Who recently tweaked the look of the Daleks (which maybe you liked, maybe you didn't). Now the series is reaching back to redesign another robotic race from the show's past—the Yeti.

Designer Peter McKinstry released this concept drawing for the Yeti, a race of robot that appeared twice in the '60s. As you can see, they won't come off quite as cute and cuddly as they did decades ago.

McKinstry's creation will be brought to life as part of the Doctor Who Christmas Special, so we've got six months or so to wait until we see the real thing clanking around.

But what do you think so far?
