Androgums were a barbaric, primitive humanoid race used for menial labour in the Third Zone.
Androgums were human-like in basic appearance, but with large, orange eyebrows and grey warts around their face. Androgums had heavy builds, and could easily overpower a human. They also had enormous appetites, able to consume massive amounts of food with little discomfort. (The Two Doctors) They were also significantly tougher than a human; Roz Forrester once punched an Androgum on the chin and only broke her fist. (Shakedown)
The principle attribute of the Androgums was their affection for nourishment and eating, as they had about unquenchable hungers. Androgum law was that The satisfaction of delight was the sole thought process of activity. Androgums would eat about anything, including vermin and wise species (even, it was implied, Androgums).
