War of the Worlds: Unto Us a Child is Born

Aliens abandon a compromised biological attack, one of whom panics and takes over another body to escape, not knowing its new host is a pregnant woman.

The child that is soon born is a curiosity because it has taken with it part of the alien that blended with its mother. Even when it grows into a monster, the Blackwood Project must protect it from the aliens who soon realise that it may be a source of salvation against Earth's bacteria.

Some of the names being called for over the P.A. system in the hospital scenes are those of the crew: Doctor Wright, Creative Consultant Herbert Wright; Doctor Skiba, Production Coordinator Nan Skiba; and Doctor Murdoch, Production Manager Susan Murdoch.

Episode Goofs
When the final scene pans up to show Suzanne, Harrison, and Ironhorse talking, we hear Suzanne just as it gets very close to the window, but her mouth is clearly not moving.
