This review is from: Doctor Who: The Ark In Space - Special Edition [DVD] (DVD)
The first transmitted Philip Hinchcliffe produced Doctor Who story, which builds up the body horror almost from the start. The parasitic Wirrn battle to take control of Nerva, which contains survivors of an Earth ravaged by solar flares, who are held in suspended animation. Tom Baker hits the ground running with an astonishing performance, ably suported by Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith and Ian Marter as Harry Sullivan. The reviewer's first memory of being scared by Doctor Who is of a Wirrn falling out of a cupboard at the end of episode 1!
