BBC To Release Doctor Who: The Power Of The Daleks Special Edition

The animated version of Doctor Who: The Power Of The Daleks comes back for a new release on DVD and Blu-ray, with updated animation and never before seen additional material!


Doctor Who: The Power Of The Daleks – Special Edition is an updated animation of Patrick Troughton’s first story as the Second Doctor, featuring the Doctor’s recurring nefarious foes, the Daleks!


Originally broadcast between November and December 1966, sadly, none of the six original broadcast episodes of ‘Power of the Daleks’ any longer exist in the BBC Film Archives.

However, complete audio recordings of the lost episodes have survived in the hands of private collectors. And it is these audio recordings that are used as the basis for this special animated production of the programme. Now in a brand new edition and brought to you in glorious black and white.


The six animated episodes replace the 2016 physical and digital release, with new and improved animation and authentic black and white visuals. The latest release also showcases a vast array of exciting new special features, in addition to all of the value added material on the 2016 release.


This release includes exciting new special features:
• Two new documentaries about Power of the Daleks,
• 1993 BBC audio version of The Power of the Daleks narrated by Tom Baker,
• Raw incidental music,
• Photogrammetry Featurette,
• Whicker’s World – I Don’t Like My Monsters to Have Oedipus Complexes,
• Daleks – The Early Years: A 1992 documentary presented by Peter Davison,
• Robin Hood – 1953 Episode: Patrick Troughton’s earliest surviving TV appearance,
• BBC archive footage from BBC regional news, BBC Breakfast, Blue Peter and Newsnight,
• Previously unreleased animation trailers and animatics.

Additional bonus material from previous release:

• Animation test footage,
• Photo Gallery, including previously unreleased and rediscovered full colour on-set photos from 1966,
• Servants & Masters – The Making of The Power of the Daleks,
