While not particularly one of my favourite villains, I think credit should go to the makeup department for making one of the best lookig villains that the show has seen since it's return, if not ever. It was brilliantly made.

As for the character, I thought there was a lot more that could have been done with her/it. It wasn't the best villain we have had, but in terms of the Christmas specials it was far superior to the Sycorax from the year before.

I remember seeing a picture in the paper a couple of weeks before Christmas and thinking how good it looked. They really did an excellent job with the costume and makeup. I think the only downside is that it didn't move around. I hate spiders and I think that weould have just made it so much more creepy.

I liked the Racnoss. I agree though that ti would have been better if it was able to move around more, but the costume was huge so I get why that wasn't practical

I agree with Tardis-Console. I thought the Racnoss was pretty neat. I also agree with Peri-Peri that if it had moved around it would have been a whole lot creepier.

I liked The Racnoss. The only thing I found a bit annoying with the voice, but as for how it looked I thought it was pretty cool.

I thought the Racnoss looked great, but perhaps wasn't the strongest villain we have seen since the show returned. I think, as others have said, that it's main weakness is in the fact it barely moves.

It did look good, but it wasn't a particularly brilliant villain. I think, as everyone has already pointed out, that it's lack of movement really hindered it.
