  • The macra are a race of giant crab-like creatures who feed on a gas that is toxic to humans. They first appeared in The Macra Terror with the Second Doctor who fought to free a colony of humans they kept as slaves. After billions of years, they degenerated into feral creatures who lived at the bottom of the motorway and fed off exhaust fumes and stray humans (Gridlock).
