Although The Power of the Daleks is one of the most celebrated Doctor Who adventures,  no complete film recordings of it 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 program’s original audio recordings, surviving photographs and film clips. 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 comic book artists Martin Geraghty and Adrian Salmon.

Since its launch in 1963, Doctor Who has become one of the world’s best-loved dramas and is certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful sci-fi series ever.  Doctor Who, which is BBC America’s highest-rated series, has received numerous awards across its 53 years. It set new records in 2013 with a global simulcast event of the 50th anniversary special on television and in theaters, in partnership with Fathom Events in the U.S.

 Doctor Who will return to BBC America with a Christmas special in December and a new season in spring 2017.
