Order Now – Fury from the Deep DVD

Available to order from or

BBC Studios is pleased to announce that Fury from the Deep will be released in 2020. It will follow the release of The Faceless Ones, announced earlier this year, and fill another gap in missing Doctor Who content. Following the success of existing animations The Power of the Daleks, Shada and The Macra Terror, Fury from the Deep will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and as an exclusive Steelbook later next year.

Fury from the Deep is the missing sixth serial of the fifth season of Doctor Who, which was first broadcast in six weekly parts from March to April 1968. Starring Patrick Troughton as the Doctor, the story 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.

No full episodes of this story exist within the BBC archives, and only snippets of footage and still images are still around to represent the story. However, off-air recordings of the soundtrack do exist, thus making the animation of a complete serial possible once again.

The six new animated episodes are being made in full colour, in the original black and white and in high definition and the release will include the surviving clips from the original 1968 production. It also stars Frazer Hines as Jamie McCrimmon and Deborah Watling as Victoria Waterfield.

    At this rate we’ll never get a Hartnell. Oh well, can’t complain about what we did get.

      Actually at this rate it will take a maximum of 4 years to get a Hartnell, which is pretty good considering this previously looked like a pipe dream.

      True, it is quite hard to believe how lucky we are sometimes.

      Is love to see the smugglers, savages and galaxy 4 as they are probably the easiest of hartnell to animate

    2021 it is most likely to be abominable snowman and wheel in space because they are close to do season 5 and of the do animate those stories we can have a Troughton season set

      I would think that evil and wheel are more likely as they follow on from faceless ones and fury. The stories chosen aren’t influenced in any way by the box set releases.

      Also it is likely to be big finish that animate evil because big finish did a poll on their twiter about which story would people want to be animated next and evil won.

    I, so want this so that it matches up with the rest of the DVD collection but what year can we expect season 5 collection on Bluray, i wonder. I would certainly upgrade those first six seasons It would be pointless to get Bluray editions twice,so I can afford to wait for now.

      I am hoping they will animate all the missing episodes and The Collection will be complete. I was struggling, cause If they will include the animations in the Collection then I will have doubles, but I feel good to pay them for the animated Blu-Rays now, cause I feel like they have the money to do it (they have a studio now and two teams working on animation, so we can have two per year), so I feel like I helped a little.

      Gonna need to sell the standalone Blu-Rays if the Collection will get here.

      At least 2022 at a minimum I would think. Maybe 2023. All depends on which stories are done next.
