Narm: The scare factor is somewhat muted by the bubble wrap.
Special Effects Failure: Everything, but especially the green bubble wrap. At the time bubble wrap was too new an invention to be instantly recognizable, so they didn't really make an effort to disguise it.
Took the Bad Film Seriously: Faced with glaringly bright sets, a new Doctor who, while good, hadn't quite found his feet in the role yet, a very plasticy alien and a Body HorrorVirus made out of packaging material, Kenton Moore as Noah plays his role so passionately and convincingly that he turns a cliffhanger of him taking his hand out of his pocket to reveal it's wrapped in green bubble wrap from Narm to the sofa-chewing Nightmare Fuel of a man enduring a slow and excruciating transformation into a creeping wasp monster. Tom Baker's performance of a Patrick Stewart Speech in the first episode is also very strong and does a lot to show what the then-new Doctor can do.
