Bad Weed (Drenching “Fury From the Deep”)

Bad Weed (Drenching “Fury From the Deep”)

Is there any Doctor Who format as reliable as the base under siege? You can see why: All you need is one set, an excuse to keep the TARDIS out of reach, and one illogically obstinate person in charge, and you’re about 90% there. The key ingredient, of course, is a convincing and creepy monster, and though mutant seaweed might not be your first choice to fill that role, it’s what Fury From the Deep has to work with. Nonetheless, even in animation, “the weed” produces more scares than any hostile plantlife has a right to, so we don’t blame Victoria for giving her lungs a workout in this one. Just please don’t blame us for wanting to break the tension by snickering at all the references to “weed.”
