[edited] Looking forward to the return of the Sea Devils. They've not been seen since that very good Pertwee episode

Weren't they in the Peter Davidson story with the Silurians and the pantomime Loch Ness Monster? Give me a few minutes and I'll check the title.They've not been seen since that very good Pertwee episode
They haven't shown up in any episode since that very good Pertwee episode. Any attempt to convince me otherwise will result in willful denial/violence (delete as appropriate)Weren't they in the Peter Davidson story with the Silurians and the pantomime Loch Ness Monster? Give me a few minutes and I'll check the title.
Edit: Doctor Who And The Silurians. It was set in the future when Earth was divided into East and West Blocs. The Silurians (actually Eocenes) and the Sea Devils joined forces to attack a human base of one Bloc, called Seabase 4, to cause the launch of nuclear missiles against the opposing Bloc and bring about mutual annihilation on the humans, allowing the elder races to take over. They launched the Myrkha (worst ever Doctor Who monster) to attack the base. The Fifth Doctor flooded the base with a gas, deadly to the Silurian’s but not humans, killing them all, because he always was a genocidal maniac.
Maybe it will be an Easter special like Planet of the Dead?Was I the only person who thought this was on this weekend? It isn't coming until "Spring 2022" whenever that is and it seems she doesn't regenerate until the Autumn.

I can't see a date, but I expect you are correct that it will be Easter weekend. Then possibly one more special for the Queen's Platinum weekend when they have moved several existing Bank Holidays altogether.*Maybe it will be an Easter special like Planet of the Dead?
As we previously reported the second of three 2022 Doctor Who specials, Legend of the Sea Devils, will air on BBC One Easter Sunday, April 17 — most likely at 7:00pm BST.
To recap, the Easter transmission date was first discovered on the Legend of the Sea Devils director Haolu Wang’s online CV.
"Warriors of the Deep" and "World War Three" both make me want to see an episode where the Doctor helps defend poor helpless aliens from evil human invaders. He cooks up a variety of horrific chemical weapons - "See, if you mix zikhtula salt with malming fluid and throw it on a Human, you can make their skin dissolve!"
Only some? This was one of them in my opinion. Exploding cannonballs and electric swords, I can take them after having seen the Candyman, but...some episodes which had a bit of duff writing
Or with just the three of them! And the cannons were primed and ready to be fired. However, that doesn't compare to the poor story. Correct me if I'm wrong anywhere, but there was once upon a time, this Sea Devil looking for this lodestone, who was imprisoned within a stature. The lodestone was kept safe down the centuries, passed on from father to son. However, the Sea Devil is released and he calls upon these other Sea Devils to help him, who had been just hanging around! Couldn't they have looked for the lodestone themselves without him? Couldn't they have released him? All it took was a little cutting with a knife.how Madame Ching could sail the ship single-handedly
I never thought you would.I'm afraid I don't think much of this episode.
Yes, they could have. But it's Doctor Who. It's never been brilliant with continuity, or covering all the bases. It's pure hokum, with the occasional high concept idea, and a bit of common decency. I will admit I think Chibnall could do with a firmer editor of his scripts, but on the whole I find them enjoyable.Couldn't they have released him? All it took was a little cutting with a knife.
It's a strand in the overarching story. For me, the "romantic relationship stuff" is a good part of the story.I also find all this romantic relationship stuff boring.[...]but for me it is just time wasted that could have been better spent on the main story.
