"I will not be responsible for the destruction of my race." Decent end to a good story.

Doctor Who: Warriors of the Deep: Part 4 starts with the Doctor (Peter Davison) & his companion Tegan (Janet Fielding) being captured by the Sea Devils who together with the Silurians have taken complete control of SeaBase 4, they have control of the base & it's missile's which they plan to launch & the resultant war would wipe out mankind as we know it so the Sea Devils & Silurians can populate the planet themselves. Can the Doctor save the day & prevent the eradication of the human race?

This Doctor Who adventure was the first story of season 21 which aired back in early 1984 here in the UK, directed by Pennant Roberts I thought this fourth episode rounded things off quite nicely & there's no pantomime horses in sight. The script by Johnny Byrne unfolds as one would expect & there aren't really any surprises saved for this episode as it focuses on wrapping the story up. I have to mention the somewhat sombre & downbeat ending on Warriors of the Deep which I rather liked & while it's not the programmes most important aim I think there's a definite moral message here which is pretty effective considering the overall silliness of the series. There's plenty of fun & entrainment to be had here if your in the right mood or your a fan, a recommended Doctor Who story.

Thankfully there's no sign of the Myrka in this one so that helps cut the unintentional laughs down a bit, the photography during Warriors of the Deep is somewhat static but you have to realise that budget for something like this must have been minuscule & I don't think the BBC had the technical ability to carry off something like this successfully.

Warriors of the Deep is a good Doctor Who four parter with only a disappointing third episode (the attack on the base by the Sea Devils & Silurians should have been so much better) & some poor looking monsters letting it down. Still well worth a watch though.
