C085 The Seeds of Doom
It's "The Thing" meets "Day of the Triffids" with elements of 007, and perhaps the greatest Doctor Who serial ever.

Some antarctic scientists have just discovered a pair of seed pods in the ice and naturally make the fatal mistake of thawing one of them. What they don’t know, is that these are Krynoid pods and mankind just went to the bottom of the food chain.
Smooth move, science! While one of the antarctic explorers is taken over and turned into a homicidal vegetable, plant aficionado and Bond-villain-wannabe, Mr Chase, sends two of his hardest henchmen to reclaim the second pod and preserve the green glory of garden variety goodness at the expense of all things flesh. Four roots good. Two legs bad.
