Watched the exhaustive Blu-ray of Terror of the Vervoids across recent nights.

It's certainly the best story from the whole Trial of a Time Lord season. With it's clever take on an Agatha Christie murder mystery and dubious looking monsters, the plant based Vervoids.

Towards the end of the Behind the Sofa feature Fraser Hines asks "What would you do if a Vervoid appeared?"

To which Matthew Waterhouse replied "I'd water it!"

There's also an unaired French and Saunders Trial of a Time Lord sketch. It's not particularly funny apart from the Vervoid substitutes called Pod People which look like large green veiny penis which is ironically amusing when you consider what the Vervoids themselves look like.
