rfs554Class, er, classed up the joint this week, but the big news in Doctor Who was the return of “The Power of the Daleks”, the long lost and newly animated story released in the UK this week. Power will wander around the world later in the month and will also eventually be available in colour(!), if kicking puppies and hating life generally is your thing.

BBC Worldwide To Release Animation of Lost Doctor Who story “The Power of the Daleks” on November 5

image011

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

image012image019

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.

 

Register your interest in the BBC Store download http://pages.storeuk.bbc.com/thepowerofthedaleks

Pre-order the DVD from Amazon and HMV (£20.42 RRP)

 

On Saturday 5th November there will be a special screening of episodes 1-3 of Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks at BFI Southbank, London which will also include a Q&A with Anneke Wills, Charles Norton and Frazer Hines. Further information will be available from bfi.org.uk from Monday 19th September.

rfs540The 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!

rfs398Despite the obvious dangers of the Blinovich Limitation Effect, the Three Who Rule came together in Edmonton for a pre-Xmas, pre-“The Time Of The Doctor” powwow. Besides many and various clips, rumours and idle speculatings about the upcoming Christmas special, the big news was the announcement that Rose Tyler herself, Billie Piper, will be a guest at Gallifrey One, mere weeks away! Other morsels of information also teased the jingle-belled minds of the RFS crew, including the tempest in a teacup that was the Missing Believed Wiped event at the BFI on December 21, topped off by a final set of interviews from Chicago TARDIS with volcano enthusiast Tracey Childs (from “The Fires of Pompeii”) and notable Davros impresario Terry Molloy. And if lava and genocidal geniuses doesn’t capture the holiday spirit, what does? Nothing, that’s what.

rfs387aFOUND! Against all hope and logic, nine episodes of Doctor Who once thought lost forever have been found and returned to the BBC Archives. Such a monumental occasion warrants a rare Radio Free Skaro cutaway episode, wherein the Three Who Rule discuss the return of five episodes of The Enemy of the World and four episodes of The Web of Fear, the extravagant efforts that Doctor Who’s newest hero, Philip Morris of Television International Enterprises Archives, went to in order to uncover these lost treasures…and also reveal a little bit of the intense research that was done by the Skaro boys over the past few months to try to get to the bottom of all the rumours! Rejoice, Who fans!
