Doctor Who Fury From the Deep

Fury from the Deep will vary in approach from other recent animations. As executive producer Gary Russell explains:

“Luke Marcatili, my co-director in Sydney, and I favoured the European-style, clean-line approach. I love things like Tintin and Asterix, and we were both drawn to shows like Archer for inspiration. Plus, we animate in Toon Boom Harmony rather than Adobe Animate that AnneMarie Walsh’s team used on The Faceless Ones, so that inevitably makes things look quite different.

“No animation program is better or worse than another, but they do have different strengths and weaknesses, so the Big Finish stories will never look the same as AnneMarie’s or Charles Norton’s productions [eg, The Power of the Daleks]. Which is good; it’s the same rationale as having different directors, set designers, cameramen etc in live-action Doctor Who. You each bring something different to the table.”
