|Don’t think for one minute that a lack of Doctor Who is going to stop us from examining the viewing figures for “Resolution” in staggering (some would say pointless) detail, along with the surprising return of Doctor Who to Twitch, new Gallifrey One guests (including RFS favourites like directors Wayne Yip and Rachel Talalay), and most importantly an interview with the Man of A Thousand Voices (and of course the Daleks), Nicholas Briggs! Listen or be exterminated!|

|The topic of Doctor Who missing episodes has been dormant relatively recently, but a tangent in an interview with producer/director Paul Vanezis, who has aided in the recovery of other previously missing Doctor Who episodes, may raise the profile once again. (Listen to the interview with Steven starting at 30:36; JR Southall joins Steven later to discuss what Paul said). Elsewhere, Doctor Who on Twitch has been an unprecedented success, launching new memes and generating fresh enthusiasm amongst a whole new generation of Doctor Who fans!|

BBC Worldwide to release animation of lost Doctor Who story, The Power of the Daleks on Saturday 5th November, exactly 50 years to the minute after it was first transmitted on BBC One at 5.50pm on Saturday 5th November, 1966
Classic story featuring Patrick Troughton’s debut as the Doctor to be released later this year as a digital download on BBC Store and on BBC DVD
It’s one of the Doctor’s most celebrated adventures and yet no complete film recordings of The Power of the Daleks are known to have survived. The master negatives were destroyed in an archive purge in 1974.
BBC Worldwide has announced that a brand new black and white animation based on audio recordings of the programme using the original cast, surviving photographs and film clips will be released 50 years to the minute after its only UK broadcast on BBC One.
The six half hour episodes feature the regeneration, or as it was then called ‘renewal’, of First Doctor William Hartnell into Second Doctor Patrick Troughton, as the Time Lord and his companions Polly (Anneke Wills) and Ben (Michael Craze) do battle with the Daleks on the planet Vulcan.
Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks is being produced by the team behind the highly successful animation of lost Dad’s Army episode A Stripe For Frazer, first released on BBC Store in February this year. The producer and director is Charles Norton, with character designs from acclaimed comic book artists Martin Geraghty and Adrian Salmon.
Charles Norton says, “The Power of the Daleks animation is the most ambitious Doctor Who archive restoration ever attempted and we’re all very honoured to be a part of such a an exciting project. Intelligent, suspenseful and magnificently staged, Power of the Daleks is one of the great lost classics of 1960s television and a superb example of the black and white era at its finest.”
Paul Hembury, Executive Producer, BBC Worldwide says, “Charles and his team are remarkably talented and passionate about Doctor Who and we are thrilled that fans will soon be able to enjoy this rather sinister but wonderful, classic story.”
Doctor Who: The Power Of The Daleks will be released on BBC Store on Saturday 5th November followed by the DVD on Monday 21st November.

Further information will be available from bfi.org.uk from Monday 19th September.

|The Doctor Who news this week consists of action dollies, laments for the (on hiatus) Bookshelf Doctors, and not much else. But the Three Who Rule used their powers of bloviation to ponder, surmise, and otherwise cogitate for longer than was strictly necessary before getting to this week’s highlight, Part the First of our commentary for the 1968 story “The Web of Fear”. As an extra bonus, the commentary for the (still missing) Episode 3 features archive audio from missing episodes hunter Phil Morris!|
