Second paragraph of the third chapter of the first story:

"If he's so keen to find these fireballs," Mattias grumbled, "Why isn't the Doctor with us?"
Four stories from the Eleventh Doctor's climactic centuries of battle against the bad guys on Trenzalore, each bringing back a classic era monster. The first one, where Justin Richards (who is excellent when, as here, he is on form) brings in the Ice Warriors, is the best; Paul Finch does well with a Krynoid too. Less convinced by George Mann's Autons or Mark Morris's Mara.

Notes and Queries...
It seems to be the new orthodoxy where Krynoids are concerned that the pod tendril simply strikes the victim, leaving a wound; this emerged in the DWM 'Fact of Fiction' piece a few years ago, appears in Finch's story, but is at variance with earlier interpretations of what was seen on screen in 1976 and the novelisation in 1977. John Gleeson seems to be holding the tendril to his arm, while pretending to be unable to detach it, in part one of 'The Seeds of Doom', and the pod's attack on Keeler is framed in a similar way.
