Ditto. I was a behind-the-coucher back in the day when Classic Doctor Who was @) not "classic"; and b) still on. The Melkur from Keeper of Traken was one of mine, and Mondasian Cybermen. shiatty costume budget meant the writers had to be more imaginative.

I didn't read this one, but if it's the same guys as last week then the seeds didn't grow.  They actually cloned cells from the fruit which is even cooler.
