I enjoyed this one but I kind of wish it had taken place exclusively in Antarctica. The claustrophobic feeling of being trapped with the Krynoid thousands of mile from any help. Then again I've just described John W. Campbell Jr.'s story 'Who Goes There?' and its various adaptations.
Actually you've just described every Second Doctor story ever written.
Well the fifth season anyway, but the first two parts of The Seeds Of Doom was a take on The Thing From Outer Space, so it was really inspired by Campbell's story. The last four acts were like a Bond movie to me, Harrsion Chase was very like a great Bond villian and he had a great henchman in Scorbie.
