Have really enjoyed this adventure. Seemed to hit the mark with a Quatermass like feel and atmosphere. Easy to follow, but well written drawing you in very quickly with believable credible characters and a well crafted story.

This is a 2-for-1 set. The first story is Zygons: Absolution. The planet Ganta 4 is co-occupied by a Christian cult and an intergalactic mining company. The two have a working relationship, but otherwise no real contact. Then, some Zygons decide to use the religious cult as their means of taking over the whole planet and spreading to Earth. The religious are easily fooled by what appear to them to be miracles, and are thus led very easily into violence and fanaticism. Peter Miles is outstanding as the cult's founder, Christopher Shaw. What a voice. The second story is Krynoids: The Root of All Evil, which is a clever play on words for a title. A pair of government investigators into invasive plant species have been called to a Yorkshire farm to look at a weed that just will not go away. The rest, for anyone who watched "The Seeds of Doom" is predictable as we see the Krynoid doing what it does. These are entertaining adventures in the Doctor Who universe, and it is interesting to see how characters cope when there is no Doctor around to tell them what is happening.
