Fury From the Deep Footage Found!


July 30, 2003 • Posted By Shaun Lyon
Steve Roberts of the Doctor Who Restoration Team this morning posted details of a brand-new Doctor Who footage find from the missing Patrick Troughton serial Fury From the Deep, episode six. Says Roberts:

Andrew Martin down at Windmill Road was recently checking through some reels of old waste film which had been stored away to use as filler and leader material, when he came across 3 mins 32 secs of 16mm negative from the weed creature attack scenes in episode 6, shot at Ealing Studios. The film consists of several near-complete scenes, although they are trims (ie unused takes of the shots that were finally used in the programe) and they are mute. Expect to see them on the next Troughton DVD!

Needless to say, this is terrific news for Doctor Who fans today... another glimpse at a story which is completely lost (except for the audio and some photos)! (Thanks to Steve Roberts, and Steve Manfred for giving us the heads up!)
