44 Doctor Who – The Sea Devils

When you live in a castle on an island with a lot of ex-seventies male pornstars for company, who can’t afford car doors, a sudden desire to alleviate the boredom by getting a pet turtle doesn’t seem that odd.

The fact that all the staff at the local turtle farm wear fishnets and NOTHING else is quite odd (and a bit kinky) and when the mean posh boy from your school days turns up to take all the turtles so that you can’t have any, that’s very odd indeed.

Still, there’s only one thing you can do in this situation: challenge him to a swordfight, beat him in a speedboat race, handcuff him to a chair, make a machine that goes BLEEP, impersonate a naval officer, steal a hovercraft and watch the Clangers.

So you didn’t get a turtle because some faulty wiring burned down the farm, but at least you got out of the house for a change.

One thought on “44 Doctor Who – The Sea Devils

  1. Completely agree with both of you — this is a spectacular story, and in some respects I wish Delgado hadn’t returned after this. I don’t want to get ahead of myself too much, but this (in my opinion) is his finest outing so far and it’s a very suitable ending – unlike the next two appearances. I hate the idea of losing Delgado, but I do think this should’ve been his finale. We’ll see what you think when we get to Frontier in Space.

    Gotta be honest – not looking forward much to The Mutants, but it’ll be interesting to hear your thoughts as ever.

    So, to wrap up (even though I’ve barely talked about The Sea Devils), a 4.5/5 from me too! 🙂
