Overview

Enjoy some well-deserved downtime with all three classic battles with the Silurians and the Sea Devils! In "Doctor Who and the Silurians" -- available in color for the first time -- the Doctor (Jon Pertwee) is summoned to an underground research center and soon discovers that a nearby cave system conceals a colony alled the Silurians, awakening from millions of years of hibernation. 'The Sea Devils" finds the Doctor (Pertwee) and Jo Grant (Katy Manning) paying a visit to the Master at a top security prison. But the Doctor soon finds himself pitted against the Sea Devils, an ancient race of reptiles intent on eliminating humankind. Travel to Sea Base Four in "Warriors of the Deep" as the Doctor (Peter Davison), Tegan and Turlough find themselves accused of being enemy agents. However, there is a greater threat to humankind: the Silurians and the Sea Devils have formed an alliance. All 17 episodes are digitally remastered for picture and sound quality. Extras include commentary by actors, directors and many others, several "making-of" featurettes, and more rare treasures from the Doctor Who vault.

Doctor Who - Beneath the Surface 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Cheesy effects and some plot points that don't make much sense, but if you're not OK with that, then you don't like Doctor Who at all! This title collects the all episodes about the Silurians and their cousins, the Sea Devils, plus tons of extras. All the plots are essentially the same. Silurians/Sea Devils/Both attack the humans, the Doctor attempts to talk peace, peace attempts fail, and the Doctor is forced to destroy them or help destroy them. The first one highlights the ideological conflict between the Doctor and the Brigadier, the second one features the Master and is something of a tribute to the Royal Navy, and the third has a human Cold War setting which makes things more interesting (and the Myrka, arguably the most laugh-out-loud Doctor Who effect ever made). The best part is the Beneath the Surface featurette, a half-hour documentary on the socio-political background of the Silurians episodes, and how that effected the writing of those episodes. Highly recommended for any Doctor Who fan, and a good place to start for newbies.

Contains the two Pertwee stores ("The Silurians"; "The Sea Devils") plus the Davison sequel ("Warriors From the Deep"). The Pertwee adventures are long-ish but very well written and very engaging (especially the second one); the Davison adventure is a bit less successful. The sets are amazing, the costumes a mix of very good and rather odd, plus one of the most disastrous monster costumes of all time. The story, however, is very close to being great. The extra features on the set are very informative and go a long way to illuminating the stories they support. The remastering on the Pertwee stories is beautifully done (not surprising at all considering the Restoration Team's body of work). All-in-all a very solid and entertaining box set.
