Classic Spine Tingler,
This review is from: Fury from the Deep (Doctor Who Radio Collection) (Audio CD)
Hailing from one of the most celebrated periods of Doctor Who and featuring the incomparable Patrick Troughton, Fury from the Deep is tragically absent from the BBC archive since it is a very strong psychological thriller.
Set at a North Sea Gas Refinery, the tale concerns the appearance of a new and scary form of seaweed with an inhuman intelligence and a parasitic nature. Soon friends become enemies and traitorous employees begin sabotaging operations at the complex, much to the annoyance of the paranoid Controller Robson and sparking conflict among the crew.
Amidst this tense backdrop, this story also sees the Doctor's companion Victoria developing grave concerns about her seemingly endless near-death scrapes whilst travelling in the TARDIS.
Ultimately bitter-sweet and moving as well as creepy, this classic is well presented on CD with a linking narration from Frazer Hines (companion Jamie McCrimmon in the story).
If you're a Doctor Who lover and haven't heard this one, it comes highly recommended.
