Publisher's Summary

Patrick Troughton battles to save mankind in this classic six-part "lost" television adventure, with linking narration by Frazer Hines. The TARDIS brings the Doctor, Jamie, and Victoria to the south coast of present-day Earth. Something nasty is lurking in the gas pipelines of the North Sea, and before long the nearby refinery is under attack. Landing on a foam-covered beach, the travellers are at first mistaken for saboteurs. A number of the refinery personnel have been behaving strangely, and the base chief, Robson, is showing serious signs of stress. Meanwhile Maggie Harris, having been stung by a mysterious frond of sea vegetation, is menaced by the sinister engineers Oak and Quill.

As sentient foam and weed combine to frightening effect, it soon becomes clear that the danger emanates from beneath the sea. Can that really be a heartbeat coming from deep inside the refinery pipes? Will the Doctor and his friends be in time to prevent an entire take-over of Earth - and will they all escape with their lives? First broadcast in 1968, "Fury from the Deep" is the last story to feature Deborah Watling as the Doctor's companion, Victoria. Long missing from the television archives, it is regarded as a classic adventure from the era of the Second Doctor.

    "Salty Seaweed Terror !!!!"

    I remember this story from my childhood. The black & white television images seemed to enhance the creeping fear of the seaweed creatures. I can honestly say that I have never looked at seaweed since without thinking of this story. The performances of the cast are excellent. Building up the menace of the unknown enemy to climatic ending. The whole story is immensly atmospheric and is in my mind a classic of the Patrick Troughton era. Doctor Who fans will not be disapointed, this is from the days when kids watched from behind pillows and the sofa!!!!

    "Poorly encoded by Audible"
    Would you try another book written by BBC Audiobooks or narrated by Full Cast?

    Yes. The audio version is the only way of getting these, and this one has an extra bonus of the BBC link announcer.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Doctor Who?

    The first appearance of the sonic screwdriver.


    What does Full Cast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    It's the only way to read this! Original audio as broadcast.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, but only at Audible's preparation of the file.


    Any additional comments?

    The chapters do not match the episodes, and a means of skipping the continuity announcer and next episode preview would have been appreciated. Nice to hear it, but it does drop you out of the fantasy.
