Doctor Who: The Underwater Menace

The TARDIS arrives on an extinct volcanic island. Before long, the travellers are captured and taken into the depths of the Earth, where they find a hidden civilisation  the lost city of Atlantis. The Atlanteans worship a goddess named Amdo and use fish people  men and women operated upon so that they can breathe under the sea  to farm the plankton-based food on which they survive. A deranged scientist, Professor Zaroff, has convinced them that he can raise their city from the sea, but actually he plans to drain the ocean into the Earth's molten core, so that the resultant superheated steam will cause the planet to explode. The travellers meet up with two shipwreck survivors, Se­an and Jacko, who persuade the fish people to rebel and stop work. The Doctor eventually foils Zaroff's plan, but only by breaking down the sea walls and flooding the city.
