Lost Doctor Who Animation ‘The Power Of The Daleks’ Is Coming To Australian Cinemas

The Power of the Daleks is one of the most celebrated Doctor Who adventures, and yet no complete film recordings are known to have survived. The master negatives were destroyed in an archive purge in 1974. This brand new animation, being released 50 years after its only UK broadcast, is based on the programme’s original audio recordings, surviving photographs, and film clips.

And it’s coming to Australian cinemas — for a limited release. Here’s where you can catch it.

The six-part adventure features the regeneration – or as it was then called “renewal” — of First Doctor, William Hartnell, into Second Doctor, Patrick Troughton, and follows the Time Lord and his companions Polly (Anneke Wills) and Ben (Michael Craze) as they do battle with the Daleks on the planet Vulcan.

Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks is produced and directed by Charles Norton, with character designs from acclaimed comic book artists Martin Geraghty and Adrian Salmon. It will be released on DVD by Roadshow Entertainment on 14 December 2016.

Here’s where you’ll be able to watch it exclusively in cinemas for one week only, starting 12 November. You can get tickets here.
