Doctor Who Fury from the Deep DVD

Available to order in the UK from or

BBC Studios can reveal artwork and extras for Doctor Who: Fury From The Deep starring Patrick Troughton as The Doctor. The new animated release will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and Steelbook from 14th September 2020. Pre-orders are available now from Amazon, HMV and Zoom.

Following the success of existing animations The Power of the Daleks, The Faceless Ones, Shada and The Macra Terror, Fury From The Deep fills another gap in missing Doctor Who content lost in the purge of the BBC’s archive in 1975.

The three-disc release gives fans the opportunity to enjoy Fury From The Deep in high definition, either in full colour or in black & white. The release will include the surviving clips from the original 1968 production as well.

Fury From The Deep is told across six episodes and stars Frazer Hines and Deborah Watling. The storyline concerns a colony of sentient, parasitic seaweed, last seen in the eighteenth century, returning to attack a number of gas instillations in the North Sea in an attempt to take over humanity.

The reversible cover…

Animated episodes from Big Finish Creative Limited in association with Digitoonz Media & Entertainment and Thaumaturgy are joined by a wealth of exciting extras.

A making-of featurette ‘The Cruel Sea – Surviving Fury From The Deep’ sees original cast members Frazer Hines, June Murphy and Brian Cullingford revisit filming locations with production assistant Michael Briant, assistant floor manager Margot Hayhoe and helicopter pilot Mike Smith. Other contributors to this segment include writer Victor Pemberton and actress Deborah Watling. There’s also an archive audio interview with director Hugh David.

Additional material includes:

  • Audio commentaries
  • The Cruel Sea – Surviving Fury From The Deep
  • Original surviving footage
  • Behind The Scenes 8mm footage
  • Animating Fury From The Deep
  • Archive interviews with Peter Day and Victor Pemberton

    Just received my region 4 copy (Australia/New Zealand) – the cover is NOT reversible (new style only) and no booklet, just the three disks… which are all fully R2/R4 encoded.

    Looks as though I’m back to importing the region 2 release just for the matching cover option.

    Have really enjoyed the Fury from the deep animation, though there are compression issues in dark scenes in part six. Think this is due to the compression when the discs are sent to be made, or could it actually be in the original animation sauce material ? Just a technical query, if anyone knows.? And only more visible on a bigger screen TV. And blu Ray discs which is strange, as plenty of room for manoeuvre on blu rays. Good story though.

    Fury as an audio story I always struggled with but I have to say I think the animation has done it proud. Definitely one that is improved by simply being able to watch it rather than listen to it.

    I’m sorry, but whilst I like the animation, I prefer the photo/clips reconstruction of all six episodes. I just feel the recon is closer to the original, and makes characters like Oak and Quill more terrifying. Oak and Quill’s eerie presence feels completely lost in the animated version.

    • Anonymous

      September 17th, 2020 - 11:25am

      Sorry have disagree. I think both animation and reconstruction are good. Oak and quill are very present in the animation, and the changes made enhance the story rather change it. As Gary Russell says, there were zero edits to the soundtrack. No removals of scenes just scenes reinterpreted. The helicopter scene is a great example. In the original it’s a comedy scene that adds nothing to the drama. It’s fine but not essential. Now other animation teams may have just cut the scene instead here we get a more relevant version (which I won’t reveal in case people haven’t seen it yet!) I enjoyed all the different versions. I didn’t like macra because I felt the changes and edits spoiled the story. But faceless, power and fury work well. Also as Russell says the animation isn’t a replacement but a version of the tale and the reconstruction is there as a record of the original. That said Tim relax I’m not having a go at you. If you prefer the reconstruction that’s absolutely fine.

      I wouldn’t have minded if they had tightened it up by missing out the long pauses when characters are just staring at each other in silence. (obviously where the animators had no clue what the original actors were doing).

    • Philip Shaw

      September 19th, 2020 - 11:21am

      I have to join with other reviews that comment on the long arms in the animation. The hands were also at times too big, bodies too thin. It really was obvious throughout and spoiled it for me. Apart from this I thought it was well done. When the characters were only shown head and shoulders it was good. I don’t like to complain and love Pat and classic Who. If they got the proportions right it would have been great.

    Has anybody noticed the ‘wanted’ poster in the background of Roger Delgaldo’s master? A cracking story though, thouroughly enjoyed it & watching more & more Pat Troughton stories makes me feel sad so many got junked. He was a great Doctor.

      There were six Easter eggs on faceless, all in the background. Master poster delgado, master poster dahwan, monk poster, magpie electrics, Hibbert’s plastics and the war machines newspaper. That was it.

    • Gordon

      September 17th, 2020 - 6:56am

      There was far more than 6. There was well over a dozen, Waterfield antiques poster, Hickman’s anti freeze, leatherman is a reference to the truck at the start of evil, condon monitor is a tribute to fan Paul condon, In episode 2 the newspaper Called mill hill times (Patrick lived there) has the rough and tumble machine advertised along with marinus padlocks (keys of marinus) and old smugglers whisky (the smugglers), the eye test has big Ron as a reference to the character from dimensions in time and also bad wolf. A picture of William Hartnell was also seen. There is also the global chemicals advertisement: LESS MUCK, LESS DEVASTATION, LESS DEATH. That’s all I can remember.

      For fury there is also the script number written on the impeller that’s visible in ep 2. The glass bottle in episode 3 has the number RR 200 as a reference to the production code of fury and fury ep 3 being the 200th doctor who episode

    The early BBC dvd’s all had silver cases. I recently bought Our Mutual Friend – a two disc set so not helpful in this case – and replaced the case as it’s silver one would make a good spare in case a Who case needed replacing.

    If it’s okay me posting a link, here’s the style of cover art you should be looking out for when buying a disc for it’s case.

      I’ve got quite a few spare silver cases that can hold a tray. So what I’ve done with ‘Power of the Daleks: Special Edition’ and ‘Fury from the Deep’ is take out the clear tray that holds the two discs, and insert that into the silver case. That way you have a 3 disc DVD set in a silver case, but with a clear 2 disc tray inside. Looks absolutely fine.

    • JamesR

      January 14th, 2021 - 6:35pm

      Not only have they started putting new releases in clear cases but newer pressings of the older titles are also coming in clear cases.
      When I first got the Mara Tales box set, Time and The Rani and Paradise Towers they came in clear cases (although Paradise Towers had an old advert for the Doctor Who Experience for whatever reason).
      For many months I had the missing episodes (the ones yet to receive an official release) as DVD-Rs containing the Loose Cannon recons and the surviving episodes from Lost in Time and The Aztecs special edition, and I put them in clear cases. After I finished the collection (well it’s kind of finished since I have all the main stories but I still need Scream of The Shalka and the Peter Cushing films) I brought a bulk of silver DVD cases from Ebay from a seller called tasha_traders_ltd (a UK based seller), they are a little expensive but it works out cheaper the larger the bulk you buy, The cases are good quality and are genuine Amaray. I brought the ones that have the little things for the swing treys (even for 1 disc sets), unfortunately silver swing trays are rarer then hens teeth so you’ll have to deal with clear ones. I would recommend you buy a slightly larger bulk then you need (for example you may need 20 so buy 25) so you have some spares and 1 or 2 might arrive damaged depending on your luck.

    Got my copy from Amazon today. So far only watched the first episode in colour. The animation is excellent. I know the story well anyway having heard the soundtrack, and already seen the loose cannon reconstruction a few years ago. But it’s one of those six parters I feel would have worked even better as a four parter. There aren’t that many six episode stories I feel actually adequately work at six episode lengths to be honest.

    • Philip Shaw

      September 15th, 2020 - 1:06pm

      I think Seeds of Doom with the Antarctic beginning, and Talons of Weng Chiang fill there length well…

    • Anonymous

      September 16th, 2020 - 12:59pm

      Mind there are many four part stories that struggle to fill the time as well. Fury works reasonably well but remember it was a different age and all drama was much slower paced.

    • Dalek Eye Stalk

      September 17th, 2020 - 9:26am

      I much prefer ‘The Web of Fear’ to ‘Fury from the Deep’. ‘Web’ I’ve always liked, even when most of the story was missing I still enjoyed the audio. ‘Fury’ on the other hand I found to be slower in pace and a real struggle on audio. I’ve even found that the same with the loose cannon recon, and the animation. Indeed ‘Fury’ has it’s classic scenes and moments, but I’ve always felt ‘Fury’ is a bit overrated.

    • Dalek Eye Stalk

      September 17th, 2020 - 10:17am

      I agree Philip Shaw. In my opinion there are only 5 stories that actually work at having a six episode length, and they would be ‘The Power of the Daleks’ , ‘The Enemy of the World’ , ‘Genesis of the Daleks’ , ‘The Seeds of Doom’ and ‘The Talons of Weng-Chiang’.

      The Invasion of time and Armageddon Factor fizzle out very quickly especially the latter which has to pad out it’s running time by being stuck in a time loop. When the Black Guardian does eventually turn up he’s very negative about it also.

    Just been reading the comments. Overall I think it is a really nice package bar the lack of 1993 Fury from the Deep with Tom Baker’s narration (disappointed there!). The ‘sets’ of the animation are brilliant, beautifully atmospheric. The artistic representation of the faces is superb as are the mouth movements and expressions – very fluid. I don’t know if it is the style of animation, I find this one hard to get used to compared with Moonbase and Power Special. The outlines to the animated characters is too bold and at times the artistic depiction of detail such as the hair – shadows or highlights is too comic book-like in style. The movement of the characters at times does not work for me. Arms being too long when the characters are gesticulating. Running /walking actions at times are too disjointed. Shame, clearly so much effort has gone into the production of this. Some of the movements clearly needed polishing off. The seaweed menace is really well done! Fabulous section when the sea-weed creature invades. That sequence over the sea!!! Brilliant. It is great to see this story animated at last. Looking forward to seeing what is produced in the future, even if it means waiting a bit longer for the production to be fine tuned. Overall, fans have been really spoilt!

      September 16th, 2020 - 6:58am

      Yeah, I’m disappointed by the lack of the Tom Baker narration too, which was a lovely bonus for Power of the Daleks. Just a minor quibble though: the fact that we have these new animated releases at all is a major bonus for our collections in itself! Let’s hope that the forthcoming Evil of the Daleks release has the Tom narration included.

      Well the fury releases already had the soundtrack available in mono, stereo, 5.1 and Fraser Hines narration. Given the choice of yet another variation of the same soundtrack and a completely different 1 the choice to give a completely different 1 adds variety. It will probably make its way to disc for the collection set in a few years and even if you don’t buy them it’s not like it isn’t readily available now as it’s pretty easy to find on YouTube to experience

      Thats what i did. Swapped it into a spare New ‘War Games’ case. In fact i,ve been swapping a lot of cases and buying new copies to accommodate both DVD and Blu-Ray versions in one case which can be costly when you need spares for all the Bonus Discs. I,ve taken all the Blu-rays out of the new Delicate Packaging and put them away and still use the DVDS in Two And three cases. Got rid of the special features discs as no doubt they will all mostly turn up on the subsequant releases in the future. Its just so i can watch them in both picture ratios. Got more discs to cover the next 3 or 4 to come. I hate all the swapping and changing but i still have matching sets to date.

    • Paul Castle

      September 16th, 2020 - 6:52am

      Oh, you’ll hate me! I always bin the packaging, and recycle the inserts. All my discs go in 240 disc cases. Makes it so much easier to archive, and marathons become a real page turner…

    • JamesR

      January 14th, 2021 - 10:04pm

      Yeah it is annoying, especially since they’ve also started issuing the older titles in clear cases (I got the Mara Tales box set, Time and The Rani and Paradise Towers in clear cases, although Paradise Towers still has the Doctor Who experience leaflet for some reason).
      I think the reason they stopped is (as Gordon suggested) a change in the law and also clear DVD cases are cheaper to make and order up (especially since physical media has become more niche).
      Something that does make me question Gordon’s reasoning slightly is you can still buy silver replacement cases and there are no signs of them going away. I got a bulk of them from a UK based Ebay seller called tasha_traders_ltd as replacements for the clear cases (as well as for my recons of the ones that aren’t commercially available which I burnt onto disc and put in printed covers).

    • JamesR

      January 15th, 2021 - 8:24pm

      Update, I’ve just looked it up and the ban is on single use plastic products (such as plastic straws and take away containers). Since it is rare for people to throw away DVD cases, I don’t think the law applies to them (I would say if you buy some replacement silver cases always keep the clear cases as spares, especially if you have a collection outside Doctor Who like me).
      I still stand by my belief that clear cases are cheaper and more accessible (especially since physical media is a niche market).

    • Dunc

      January 15th, 2021 - 10:09pm

      I think the new clear cases are made out of a different type of plastic that’s easier to recycle. Older dvd cases would tend to shatter and be very difficult to recycl. Also many places wouldn’t accept them for recycling. I would say that cost would be a factor.

    • JamesR

      January 19th, 2021 - 12:52pm

      @Dunc True, the new cases do feel a little flimsy but they are still decent as replacement cases, unlike those horrible eco cases (the flimsy ones with the recycling symbols cut out).
      I still fail to understand the concern over recycling DVD cases because you can’t keep optical media outside the case and who throws away DVDs they don’t want anyway (plus the disc can’t be recycled). I suppose if they break then maybe but unless your using the case as a frisbee then it is hard for it to break to the point of uselessness.

    Really enjoying Fury – the documentary is ace and a great commentary, despite it being recorded in lockdown.

    My only gripe is that the reversible cover is rather dull. I appreciate they can’t waste resources to make unique artwork for the reverse, but I wish they would at least change the colour on the ‘Patrick Troughton Years’ banner – the last four releases have used the dark blue/purple colour and it really doesn’t match the main image (red/green in this case). Looks really lazy and ugly. I wonder why they can’t simply change the colour (they can change everything else on the cover like the title, after all)?

    Thank you Amazon! My pre-ordered DVD copy arrived today; 1 day early; on a Sunday too!
    My ONLY issue with previous releases has been resolved with detailed disc listings not only in the booklet, but also summarised on the artwork printed on the individual discs themselves too. Beyond this; the usual very high standards have been maintained here; with an amazing and Outstanding selection of features and special features spread over this 3 disc release. Again there is an amazing 12 sided booklet, and a reversible sleeve availing the option to have this dvd match the rest of the releases of the classic releases. Once I have enjoyed the entirety of this dvd I will provide further feedback as necessary. However I can already announce that from what I’ve enjoyed so far this is a fantastic release of a great story. Thoroughly recommended. I have also preordered the Limited Edition SteelBook which I am awaiting delivery of.

      So far the standard and quality of the black and white animation is for me; bearing in mind budgetary and time restraints (as said by others many times in the past – Pixar and Disney this is not) is very high. It feels very fluid and the wide and landscape shots are amazing. The audio restoration by Mark Ayres is as ever faultless and a work of art. As indicated the visuals are really really good , yet in keeping with the original and styles / techniques / opinions of the time of production. So far nothing I could want any different or have issue with.

    I received this todaY (two days before official release!) thanks to Zoom and watched the entire storY in one sitting; the team have done a terrific job on this one. If as a purist, You are dubious about watching the colour version, don’t be – it’s beautifullY done and well worth a watch – there’s some reallY chilling moments and brilliant cliffhangers plus touching and sensitivelY-handled scenes involving Victoria towards the end.. OnlY anYone who has been themselves involved at anY point in the arduous and sincerelY – LIFE-devouring process of animation can trulY appreciate the time and effort that’s gone into this reconstruction; the eerie sound qualitY also is excellent and the tinY snippets of original footage that are also presented, along with some staggering colour super 8 from Ealing Studios offer a tantalising glimpse of how atmospheric the original serial must have been like. I recommend watching it in the dark with the lights out – it took me right back to those thrilling Saturday nights of childhood – enjoY folks!

Watched the first 10 minutes of it and I don’t know what it is but can’t seem to get to grips with the animation style maybe because its majorly different to the faceless ones, macra terror ect but for example the tardis landing on the ocean looks terrible hopefully I start to like it the more I get in to the story

      Macra terror is already out. Faceless ones is due out 20th October. Fury from the deep was briefly up for an April release however that date is gone. It is also worth noting if you have a blu ray player that the U.K. blu ray releases are region free

      The Faceless Ones comes out next month. We already have the Macra Terror in region 1 (at least in the US). Unless you meant the special edition of Power of the Daleks. I’m sure we’ll get Fury too but it’s usually a number of months after the UK.

      Expected the surviving Footage to be included. Slowly but surely the ‘Lost In Time’ DVD is becoming more obsolete.

      Disc 1 is pretty much untouched

      Disc 2 is almost obsolete. Evil episode 2 and commentary (which is rumoured to be animated soon), about 50 seconds of clips from the highlanders and a 30 second Easter egg from the underwater menace

      Disc 3: abominable snowman ep 2 (also rumoured to be animated) web 1 commentary, wheel 3 and 6 and space pirates 2 and the missing years

      Having got my copy it’s actuallly disc 1 that is in black and white and disc 2 that is in colour

      Correction – The B/W episodes are on Disc 1 and the colour episodes are on Disc 2. It seems that they put B/W episodes on Disc 1 as first choice, rather than an option, I believe.

      From what I know of, that Mirror reported that the Evil of the Daleks and the Abominable Snowman will be animated next year. But so far I haven’t heard anything confirmed by the BBC.
