Washing Doctor Who costumes

I once made the mistake of introducing Doctor Who to Claire by getting her to watch 1970s story "The Ark in Space". It was very possibly the first story I ever saw, and has a moment which terrified me at the time, when a giant insect falls out of a cupboard, and only on the cliff-hanger reveal do you realise it is already dead. It also has Tom Baker at his mesmerising bonkers best. However, what I had forgotten before exposing Claire to it was that it has a terrifying moment of an entirely different kind - terrifyingly bad, when the monster turns out to be a man crawling along the floor in a green fluffy sleeping bag wrapped in bubble-wrap. Claire never quite got over how funny it was.
