    Finally get to see this as I rewatch my other Doc 2 stories.

    Overall a good story and the animation is very nice.

    This lost episode is completely lost except for a few clips here and there as I recall. While being in black and white film might help convey the suspense a bit more, what can you do?

    Also the animators inserted another eater egg Wanted Poster of the Delgado Master around 19 minutes into ep 2.

    Did you get to watch this, Ancient One?

I did.

I love Fury from the Deep. One of my favourite Doctor Who's. A very good script, well directed, very good performances, and some genuinely chilling moments.

The animation... Not so much. I'm glad they're getting these out there for those that want them, but personally I find them increasingly annoying.

They're taking so many liberties with the stories now, you can't even call them reconstructions any more. They're veering into the realm of remakes. And that doesn't interest me at all.

They sometimes leave out key scenes if they're too difficult to animate (Power of the Daleks and The Macra Terror), they add material that wasn't there (The Macra Terror and Fury from the Deep).

The Delgado 'easter egg' would be fine if it actually made any sense, but they keep inserting it into the wrong shows. Neither UNIT nor any other Earth authority encountered the Master before late 1970/early 1971 (Or 1975/76 if you place the UNIT stories later), that's clear from dialogue in Terror of the Autons. But they've put these 'wanted' posters in The Faceless Ones and Fury from the Deep, two stories that take place in the 1960's. A nitpick, I know, but another thing that drives me crazy.

I still buy them, but more as collection fillers and for the special features at this point. Whenever I want to experience the stories, I tend to go to the Loose Canon reconstructions
