** While the above is certainly the most narmful, pretty much the whole story is narm after narm after narm. And thats before [[CrowningMomentOfFunny the trousers splitting scene]]. It truly is SoBadItsGood on sheer pantomime alone. Graham Crowden really steals the show; "LORD NIIIIIMON! It is I! Soldeeeeeeed!", "The Nimon be praised!" "IIIIIIII SAAAAAAAAAAW TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!"

* HamAndCheese: Despite Graham Crowden's legendary chewing of scenery there was plenty of set left for other actors to dine on. One of the other characters - the co-pilot, played by Malcolm Terris - has the catchphrase "WEAKLING SCUM!" that he delivers in increasingly over-the-top pantomimic ways. Even more delicious is that during his death scene he overacts so spectacularly that his trousers visibly split. According to ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'', "'''''WEAKLING SCUM!!!'''''" ''wasn't even in the script'', Terris came up with it all by himself. Pop him between two slices of bread and you'd have a ham and cheese sandwich you could use to beat a bear to death.

* SoBadItsGood

to:

* SoBadItsGoodSoBadItsGood: The story was best summed up by ''The Discontinuity Guide'' as "Wonderful with some friends and a bottle of wine". Graham Crowden's performance as Soldeed is by far one of the hammiest, most over-the-top performances in the entire series, and that is really saying something. His death scene is proof enough.
