Editorial Reviews

These human beings will die as they have lived-in a sea of their own blood! The year is 2084, and two power-blocs are poised on the brink of war. Using a series of undersea complexes and deep-space satellites, each bloc carefully monitors the other's movements, slowly edging towards the moment when one will launch an all-out nuclear attack on the other. Arriving on Sea Base Four, the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough are rapidly drawn into the web of intrigue which enmeshes this era's paranoid political maneuverings. Not everyone on board the base is working for the same team, and the officer directly responsible for implementing the bases nuclear capability has died in mysterious circumstances. Amid this already tense atmosphere, the crew of Sea Base Four faces an even greater threat to mankind. The Silurians and Sea Devils, prehistoric reptile men who went into hibernation millions of years before, have reawoken and intend to launch another attempt to reclaim the Earth from humanity. The Doctor must tackle enemy sabotage and face the Myrka, a giant marine monster. But can he prevent the Silurians from implementing their "final solution" - launching the missiles to start a war that threatens to wipe out the human race?

    Warriors of the Deep was part of Peter Davison's 3rd and final season as the young & vulnerable 5th incarnation of the Doctor. Final down to a mere two companions, Davison's run as the Doctor had it's fair share of returning classic foes, this time was a double dip. The Sea Devils and the Silurians, both from Jon Pertwee's run as the third Doctor, are really a natural pairing as they are both prehistoric-sea species of Earth, it is almost astonishing that it hadn't been done earlier. Although the earlier incarnation of the Doctor could very easily been inserted in the place of the actual incumbent, most of the dialogue could have come from that era, down to the Doctor's thinly veiled distain for the destroyer / conqueror side of Humanity, thus his classic closing quote draws in sharp relief the return of the love/hate attitude that was in so much the third Doctor's lines, "there should have been another way..." This time the monsters are indigenous Earth prehistoric creatures so the humans are already the invaders in the scenario. Last time the Doctor faced the Silurians he made some hard choices of conscience bordering on treason (in UNIT's eyes) to do the right thing, as it were. This time that moral convection kind seems worn and thin, admittedly inspite of his young appearance this is an older Doctor, and in this story, a usually pessimistic Doctor.

    This the 131st story or the six-hundredth and third episode of the 21st season aired in 1984. This was really a golden-age for the series (much like now with the 2005 return of the show). Of course, Tom Baker, like most Americans my age was "my Doctor," but having followed the show through the reworking of the series by executive producer John-Nathan Turner (much like Russell T. Davies reworking for the 21st cen.

    This is one of the better Peter Davison episodes that I've seen (Caves of Androzani being the best). This is a classic episode with classic villians. Here's some notes about the DVD and the purchase experience.
    1. I purchased this DVD on Amazon
    2. This episode contains the classic 3rd Doctor villians the Sea Devils and Silurians.
    3. The entire episode takes place in n underwater base (not a quarry)
    4. The sets and costumes are on par with classic Doctor Who standards.
    5. The story is a little all over the place with multiple villians and story threads. The different threads aren't setup the best and leaves a lot of questions.
    6. The cast is good. Companions are Teegan and Turlough.

    Good episode, decent story and classic Who.

    As usual I will skip the plot line I am sure you have read it. Good production value. No skips and consistent sound.

    Like the 3rd Doctor, this sort of continues with the "destroyed" reptilian species. I'm not going to give anymore away but this one does not end quite the way you expect. To me, it's one of my favorites of Peter Davison for it really shows some depth in his portrayal of the Doctor.

    Yes Icthar, I agree. Doctor Who Warriors of the Deep is an excellent story, and I liked it a lot. As you probably know, Doctor Who has never been a show (until now maybe) that has been known for stunning special effects, but there are still some great things in this story.

    For one, I really like the Silurian costumes, and although the smiling is a bit tacky, it has lots of detail, and they really look very reptilian. The Sea Devils are nice too in my opinion, and I think the samurai armor was a nice touch. Yes, I noticed that the Sea Devil heads were tilted and seemed a bit wobbly, but maybe they just suffered a bit of tissue and muscular degeneration like Icthar said in part one. Also, I have seen in a lot of reviews that the pace of the Sea Devils and Silurians is a bit too lackadaisical, but to me it is great. Just think about it, large reptiles with thickly armored scales protecting them. Considering that many animals like that are somewhat handicapped by their lack of defined joints, I think they seem very realistic.

    Then there are the sets. Yes, I know the sets shake horribly during the fight between the doctor and the guards at the end of episode one/beginning of episode two. But if you watch the making of the show in the special features, you would learn that they were up against a rock and a hard place so to speak with this story, and I think they really pulled it off.

    Lastly, I thought that the acting was great in this story, except for the fact that many of the deaths by the Myrka were quite corny and seemed fake. To better realize this character, I recommend watching the, "They Came from Beneath the Sea" and "The Depths" commentaries with the actors playing the Myrka, because I think it helps to realize the creature better.
