Homo Reptilia - Aliens from Doctor Who

"Homo Reptilia, warrior class ... A new type of Silurian, different tribe.
BBC - Doctor Who

This postcard is postmarked in 2015 with two space (:) stamps from 1981, but I think these Silurians are from the 2010 two-part episodes: "The Hungry Earth" and "Cold Blood".

The first Silurians introduced are depicted as prehistoric and scientifically advanced sentient humanoids who predate the dawn of man; in their backstory, the Silurians went into self-induced hibernation to survive what they predicted to be a large geological upheaval caused by the Earth capturing the Moon.
