Eye Colour : Red

Hair Colour : None (No Hair)

Information : The Judoon are a intergalatic police featured in the episode Series 3 Episode 1 "Smith and Jones".They are basically humanoid in form, have heads that look like that of a rhino, and wear black, bulky armour.

They serve the role of galactic police. Brutal in their application of the law, they are highly logical in their battle tactics, but not very intelligent, and as a result can be tricked by a more intelligent individual. They have no jurisdiction on Earth, and no authority to deal with human crime, so when a fugitive alien hid out in an Earth hospital they transported the building to the moon. The Judoon carry laser guns which can incinerate Slab slave constructs as easily as humans. In the hospital the Leader is the only one seen to remove his helmet.

During the episode, the Doctor demonstrates considerable knowledge of their intelligence and methods, and says that, whilst their behaviour is, on the surface, that of a military police force, they are little more than "interplanetary thugs". Also, according to The Doctor, the Judoon have a "great big lung reserve", meaning either their lungs are huge, or they have huge secondary lungs for storing air.
