The Myrka was the source of numerous problems. was supposed to be ready for the first studio day, to give actors John Asquith and William Perrie an opportunity to rehearse. The Myrka had been designed in the manner of a pantomime horse, with two operators positioned in either end of the costume. However, Nathan-Turner was informed that not only would the Myrka be unavailable for rehearsals, but the costume would not be physically ready. Nathan-Turner informed Visual Effects that he had no choice but to use the Myrka, regardless of its condition. The paint was still drying, soiling the outfits of those actors with whom the Myrka came in contact. Furthermore, Asquith and Perrie found the costume very difficult to manipulate, and consequently the Myrka was not nearly as mobile as anticipated. This resulted in many of the scenes involving the monster coming across as very awkwardly staged. It is regarded as one of Doctor Who
(1963)'s least impressive monsters. See more
