Dr Who - Beneath the Surface - Should be sold as a Twin Pack,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - Beneath the Surface (The Silurians  / The Sea Devils  / Warriors of the Deep ) [DVD] (DVD)
I had seen both Dr Who and the Silurians (1970) and The Sea Devils (1972) on VHS and I enjoyed them both. The acting from Jon Pertwee (The Third Doctor), Caroline Johns (Liz Shaw ), Nicholas Courtney (Brigader Lethbridge Stewart), Katy Manning (Jo Grant)and Roger Delgardo (The Master) was excellent. Both Producer and Scrip Editor (Barry Letts and Terrance Dicks) picked the right supporting cast and characters in both the two Jon Pertwee stories, such as Peter Myles (Dr Lawerance), Fulton MacKay (Dr Quinn), Norman Jones (Major Baker), Jeffrey Palmer (Masters) Hugh Morton (Colonal Trenchard), Edwin Richfield (Captain Hart), June Murphy (Jane Blyth) and the actors who played the Silurians and The Sea Devils are brilliantly acted and play their parts with great passion and panche. As the Third Doctor stated that it doesn't matter if you have green skin you can share the planet and live in harmony with both human, silurian and sea devils, but its always the same you get some silurians, sea devils, or a renegade time lord (The Master) who do not want peace and alway throws a spanner in the works.
I had to knock off a star due to the 1984 Dr Who Peter Davison adventure The Warriors of the Deep. This is worst story that ever came out the Peter Davison era and a waste of space. Peter Davison 1st and the first two stories from his 2nd series (Arc of Infinity and Snakedance) as the Doctor where his best. This should have been a twin pack displaying Jon Pertwee Dr Who at his best. We get two outstanding adventures and one totally embarrisment at the end. My advice is to display both Dr Who and the Silurians and the Sea Devils and hide the Warriors from the Deep along with Silver Nemesis (Out of sight, out of mind)
