As we found out back in September, the missing November 1966 "Doctor Who" serial "The Power of the Daleks" is returning to fans. Although the master negatives to the live series were destroyed in a 1974 archive purge, BBC America and BBC Worldwide took on the arduous task to recreate this as a black-and-white animated special from the original audio recordings and numerous old photographs.



It's also notable that this series showed the regeneration of The First Doctor (William Hartnell) into The Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton).

Directed by Charles Norton, and showcasing character designs by comic book artists, Martin Geraghty and Adrian Salmon, this series also stars The Doctor's two Companions, Polly Wright and Ben Jackson. 

Take a look at trailer #3.


The folks in the U.K. have been able to buy and download this from the BBC Store since November. Now it will air on BBC America as a six week series starting Saturday, November 19.  Be sure to set your DVRs. You won't want to miss out on this 50th Anniversary celebration, ladies and gents.

About the Author - IvCNuB4

IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
