One of the lamest, boring and visually dull Who stories. Not many are worse than this.... well maybe a few including Gunfighters andsome of the new series stories.

Pip and Jane Baker's novelization of their first script for Doctor Who shows in abundance why they were a wrong choice. It's a lame who-dunnit in which the who is obvious, the characters are all one-dimensional types, the dialogue is stilted, and the plot more riddled with holes than the golf course next to no man's land in WWI. A huge problem are the Vervoids themselves. Giant mobile plants born out of seed pods, how can they speak English, know what a space ship's "bridge" is, have eyes, and voluntarily spray poison gas from their mouths? The novelization has much ham-fisted foreshadowing, such as "For Rudge there was to be no escape." Not much more needs to be said.
