Rewatch Oz - Dr Who: The Underwater Menace
Spaceship Dispatcher
Again the writer showed that he was unable to justify the plot in the dialogue; the Doctor did not even try to persuade Thous in episode two, and we get the same in episode three with starting the fish people revolution with any sort of actual argument being presented.
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

For goodness sake, we need either Jamie or Ben to help look after Zaroff.

It's a story with obvious weaknesses. I like it, simply because it's the earlier existing Troughton episodes, and he's wonderful from the off.

The central flaw in this whole story is that Atlantis is not submerged.


Aren't we a long way underwater, but there are barriers that stop the water coming in?

Defences which are sabotaged in Part 4.

True, but it's so obviously an 'underground city' in construction concept (like something out of an old Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers serial) and the island itself is still an island that the Atlanteans could build on any time they wished.

Isn't the island more of a single protruding rock?

But it still is not underwater; they can go to the surface and build on what there is; my point is that the writer created a story about an underground city not an underwater one, except in the city being below sea level.

The cast make more of the story on set than was there on paper, especially Troughton.

A complete underwater city is way beyond the budget of 1966 Wink

Not really! The most expensive part of filming was the location work; simply land the Tardis in a tunnel as normal and describe the city as underwater in the dialogue with airlocks etc and it would have been cheaper. I also draw your attention to the classic pre-Who serial City Beneath the Sea and its sequel Secret Beneath the Sea...

But it's still underground, only underwater by virtue of being below sea level; the lift comes from the above ground surface of the island after all.
