Varga Plant by Harnois75 Varga Plant by Harnois75
Interpretation of the Varga Plant from the Doctor Who teaser - Mission to the Unknown - a single episode that set up events for the epic 12 part Dalek's Masterplan. (1965)

If anyone was snagged by a Varga Thorn they would rapidly lose their reason and become murderous. Death wasn't even an escape from the horror as the corpse of the victim would slowly turn into a new Varga Plant.

Classic Body Horror.

Awesome work! The Varga plants feature in the Dalek War Audio play, such a awesome idea.

Gah! that is amazing - I've been listening to the I, DAVROS series on repeat for about the last week, and this is just perfect, so so so so so atmospheric - you can almost feel the toxic wasteland seeping through the screen, wonderful, brilliant interpretation of the vargas - I don't know if I'll be able to sleep tonight :D

David Cronenberg eat your heart out...

I'm really digging the atmosphere surrounding this piece, and it's a frightening thought to carry with you before going to bed D:

If Mission to the Unknown had a seperate Target release, this would have been a perfect cover.

Very well done. Absolutely stunning.

I love how you've updated this idea, but still kept the almost noir attitude of the original concept. Can you imagine the living death the victim experienced.?
