  • Acting the Part - The recent release of 1968's Fury from the Deep has provided a new audience with a tantalising taste of the Doctor's struggle with the parasitic seaweed creature. Toby Hadoke asked John Abineri and Victor Maddern, in his final interview before his untimely death about the pictures we're still missing.
