Sergeant Rugg was one of the deadly pawns, along with Mrs Wiggs, used by the Celestial Toymaker against Steven Taylor and Dodo Chaplet when they were trapped in his realm. When not in a contest, Rugg stayed in doll form. (TV: The Celestial Toymaker)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • Bearing in mind that Cyril, the Knave of Hearts and the Kitchen Boy were all the same person, this may have been the case with Rugg, Joey the Clown and the King of Hearts. However, this was never confirmed on-screen.
  • In the novelisation, it is mentioned that Steven liked reading books about military history and recognised Rugg's sergeant's uniform as being from the time of the Napoleonic Wars. This was not derived from any information given in the televised version.
