I'm a Tom Baker [later to be an excellent Puddleglum] Dr. Who fan myself,
plus I loved his wild, deadly but rather short-lived in episode terms
"companion" Leela. And as for those effects, there was an episode I dimly
remember in which the chief danger was posed by vegetable creatures who
looked like huge clumps of grass but would roll right over you and "git" you.
I called it, "Attack of the Dreaded Shredded Wheat People."
