Product Description

A highly popular sequel to ABC's smash-hit Pathfinders trilogy, the two Beneath the Sea series once again star Gerald Flood - this time as intrepid reporter Mark Bannerman.

Created by cult favourite writer John Lucarotti (Doctor Who, The Avengers, Into the Labyrinth, Star Maidens) both series see scientific journalist Mark Bannerman and his assistant Peter Blake get into (and out of!) all manner of aquatic scrapes.

When Bannerman and Blake are invited aboard an atomic submarine to observe the trials of a new underwater transmitter, they embark on an adventure which leads them into the depths of inner space...

[] production booklet by archive television historian Andrew Pixley

3.0 out of 5 stars Batman and Robin In Plain Clothes 21 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase
These two childrens' serials are to some extent a "follow on" to the Pathfinders In Space" ones. In particular, Gerald Flood and Stewart Guidotti, who had played Conway Henderson and Geoffrey Wedgewood, reappear as scientist Mark Bannerman and teenager Peter Blake. Peter Williams (Professor Wedgewood) also appears occasionally as a Navy Captain.

However, I have to say that they don't impress me as much as they did in Pathfinders, though I don't think it's really their fault. They do their best with the parts, but something has definitely been lost, something which I can best describe as "context".

As Henderson and Geoff, they formed part of a larger scheme of things in belonging to the ship's company. Geoff's role, in particular, had a distinct "coming of age" element . Though only about 14, he is considered a full member of it, with responsibilities as radio operator, etc. Treated as a an adult and expected to be one, he rises to the occasion, showing himself prepared to take even unwelcome orders, and in the crisis, when there "aren't enough seats in the lifeboat" he is ready to face death along with the older members of the crew. Though Peter is also brave and resourceful, I feel the loss of this background diminishes his part.

Bannerman too seems a somewhat lesser figure than Henderson, caught up in events rather than a central part of them Removed from that wider context, he and Peter become just a sort of "dynamic duo", rather like a plain clothes version of Batman and Robin.

This impression is reinforced by the nature of the opposition. There is none of the ambivalence, the mixture of good and evil, that we got with Harcourt Brown.

5.0 out of 5 stars B&W fun. 25 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
For anyone with an interest in early Doctor Who this set is a must. Remastered with clear audio this is well worth viewing.
