appearance The Two Doctors


Shockeye of the Quawncing Grig was an Androgum chef aboard Space Station Camera. He had a yearning for human flesh, and tried several times to kill and eat Jamie McCrimmon and Peri Brown.

Shockeye’s fellow Androgum, Chessene of the Franzine Grig, had had her intelligence artificially increased by Dastari, the commander of Camera. The trio called in a legion of Sontarans to kill all aboard but them. They travelled to Spain and devised a plan to use the research from Camera to uncover the secret of time travel.

When the Second Doctor was temporarily transformed into an Androgum, Shockeye brought him to Las Cadenas, a restaurant managed by Oscar Botcherby and his girlfriend Anita in Seville. After eating an enormous meal and running up a bill of 81,600 pesetas, Shockeye offered to pay with a twenty-narg note, but Oscar refused. Infuriated, Shockeye stabbed him in the chest with a meat knife, killing him.

Back At The house, Chessene and Dastari captured both the second and the sixth incarnations of the Doctor, and chained them up with their companions. Chessene allowed Shockeye to take Jamie to be eaten. When the sixth incarnation escaped, Shockeye was ordered to postpone the killing and chase him down. The Doctor used some cyanide left by Oscar when he was hunting moths to smother Shockeye and kill him. He never got to taste human flesh. (The Two Doctors)
