About the Author

Victor Pemberton's career started in radio when his flatmates challenged him to write a play because he was criticising another. The result was The Gold Watch in 1961, the first of many radio scripts. His first television script was for Associated Rediffusion's Send Foster (1965), concerning the exploits of a junior reporter on a local newspaper. He also worked as an actor to supplement his writing income and this led to director Morris Barry casting him in Doctor Who (The Moonbase). After a brief stint writing and script-editing Doctor Who in the mid-Sixties, Victor contributed to Timeslip and Ace of Wands and wrote numerous other scripts for radio and television. He produced Fraggle Rock in the 1980s, as well as setting up a Writers' Television Workshop in Lagos, Nigeria, and working in Kuwait on a drama series about the daily life of a Gulf Arab family (Bait Abu Khaled). In 1990, Headline books invited Pemberton to write a novelisation of a BBC Drama series he had penned called Our Family. This was published in 1991 and led to a successful career as a novelist, and to date he has published fifteen 'family saga' novels, including Where the Swallows Come Again (2008).

HASH(0x9c2ecdec) out of 5 stars Fury From The Deep July 2 2013
By Night-Gaunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Another novelization of the tv show. However unlike "Enemy of the World" this one is well fleshed out as a novel should be. You can practically feel the numbing cold and smell the brine and hear the sounds of the deep ocean creature making its way to the surface. Gripping and Mr. Pemberton did a near perfect job of bringing it to life and then some adding to the novel what things were not shown or just mentioned he showed or enlarged upon. Also a 2nd Doctor outing that in its original one that had lots of action outside the stages so they had to film them. Cracking good horror story too but with that Dr. Who touch.

Only one thing and it is just my pet peeve. The use of "chairperson" for an obvious woman. Why not just use "chairwoman" the way we use "chairman?" Just that, otherwise it is excellent

HASH(0x9c2ee054) out of 5 stars See more weed than when the Doctor went to Colorado. Sept. 10 2014
By Ken Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Another interesting novelization of a lost dr who serial. Highlights include seeing, weeding, seeing weed and sea weed. And did I tell you the villain is an evil gaseous mat of seaweed?
HASH(0x9c2ee294) out of 5 stars Good attempt that loses out in the translation Oct. 21 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is Victor Pemberton's adaptation of his own script, which is the final story of companion Victoria.
Landing on the coast of the North Sea in England, where the first indication that something is wrong is a strange, rhythmic sound the Doctor can hear from inside a gas pipe. Before they can investigate. They are shot with tranquilising darts and wake to find themselves accused of sabotage. The crews of some gas rigs have vanished, and the operations of refinery have been subject to odd changes in gas pressure within the pipes.
What is it lurking in the refinery's pipes?
This is one of many stories of which the BBC no longer has a copy. They released the soundtrack on audio cassette some years back, and it is likely to be re-released on CD sometime in the future. Some clips of the series can be found on 'The Missing Years' video, released in conjunction with 'The Ice Warriors'.
While Mr. Pemberton's novelisation is quite good, and benefits from its higher than normal page count, watching the few remaining clips only emphasises what has been lost. The portrayal of Mr. Oak and Mr. Quill in particular loses something without its visuals.
This story is one of those that does not make the transition from one medium to another without losing something.
HASH(0x9c2ee510) out of 5 stars Sentient seaweed stalks Doctor and Co. July 30 2002
By Chadwick H. Saxelid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
No sooner has the TARDIS splashed down in the North Sea than the great Doctor and his companions Victoria and Jamie are caught up in another terrifying threat. Strange, mind controlling seaweed is getting sucked up from the depths of the ocean and is taking over a natural gas drilling platform and its crew. Can the Doctor and his companions help save both the day and the threatened crew?
Doctor Who: Fury from the Deep is the first Doctor Who adaptation I have read in quite a few years (the last one I clearly remember reading was back in High School) and it wasn't half bad. Too bad the novel was mostly the shooting script in narrative form, some of the action even reads like stage direction the writer didn't both to translate more effectively. Some greater attention to atmospheric detail would have been nice. That quibble aside the book remains a fine adventure that the Doctor's fans should enjoy, but non-fans will no doubt scratch their collective heads and just mutter, huh?
