Malcolm Hulke and reptiles

It hadn't really struck me before, but what with New Who bringing back the Silurians, my son's bedtime reading being Doctor Who and the Dinosaur Invasion, and also having just got onto the story after Spearhead from Space in my rewatch of Old Who, something became obvious:

The Faceless Ones (1967), by David Ellis and Malcolm Hulke. Features aliens called Chameleons.
Doctor Who and the Silurians (1970) by Malcolm Hulke. Features the reptilian Silurians.
Colony in Space (1971) by Malcolm Hulke. Features a giant killer lizard.
The Sea Devils (1972) by Malcolm Hulke. Features the reptilian Sea Devils.
Frontier in Space (1973) by Malcolm Hulke. Features the alien Draconians, who are reptilian.
Invasion of the Dinosaurs (1974) by Malcolm Hulke. Can you see where this is going?

OK, The War Games is an exception here (and I suppose also The Ambassadors of Death, though it wasn't his concept originally), but there's a definite pattern.

So Hulke thought reptiles made cool monsters?

Can't say I disagree with him there.

Oh I don't know. The War Lords are a bit of a dinosaur.

Are you reviewing Doctor Who somewhere else now?

(And is anyone else having trouble with LJ sites not being found?)
