Quotes: Human Aliens
Eldar were familiar to many Imperial citizens, since they were often depicted as weakling aliens crushed beneath the feet of conquering humans in stained glass windows or in the margins of illuminated prayer books. The truth was that no human artist could ever realise one properly. An eldar looked almost human from a distance: two arms, two legs, two eyes, a nose, a mouth, but everything else was different. An eldar radiated wrongness, from its huge, liquid eyes to the many jointed, worm-like waving of its fingers.

Aw, Mom, he's no E.T. He doesn't even look like Mr. Spock!
Sean Donovan, upon seeing the first alien Visitor in V

Amy: What kind of alien?
The Doctor: Well, you know, a nice one. Definitely one of the nice ones.
Amy: So you're like a... a space squid, or something... Are you like a tiny little slug in a human suit?
The Doctor: ...
Amy: Is that why you walk like that?
Doctor Who, "Meanwhile in the TARDIS"

Trekkie: Why is it that all of the guest stars are humanoid in shape even when they're playing aliens?
Marina Sirtis: When we start auditioning actors that are not humanoids in shape, that, of course, will change.
