Overview

A long-lost episode of Doctor Who was finally recovered in 2011 and is now available for the first time on DVD. Doctor Who: The Underwater Menace first aired in four parts in 1967. Since then, all but one of the episodes was thought missing – lost in time and space. This release of The Underwater Menace contains the full audio from episodes one and four, presented with still images from those parts, and episodes two and three in their entirety.

The Doctor (Peter Troughton) and his companion (Jamie McCrimmon) arrive on an extinct volcanic island. Before long, the travelers are captured and taken into the depths of the Earth, where they find a hidden civilization - the lost city of Atlantis. The Atlanteans worship a goddess named Amdo and use Fish People - men and women operated upon so that they can breathe under the sea - to farm the plankton-based food on which they survive. A deranged scientist, Professor Zaroff, has convinced them that he can raise their city from the sea, but actually he plans to drain the ocean into the Earth's molten core, so that the resultant superheated steam will cause the planet to explode.
