Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)
As this is my first review of an ‘early adventure’; I’ll talk briefly about this range.
It’s been really good to see classic doctors revived and companions brought back in the ‘early adventures’. There were some really nice companion chronicles, but Big Finish doing full cast audio adventures have slightly ruined me for narration when we can hear a story with a full cast acting it out. These early adventures are mostly acted out with a full cast, with occasional narration to set the scene. The companions like Frazer Hines as the Second Doctor and William Russell as the First do such a good job you feel like they are there and I’m really glad they made the brave decision to do early Doctors replacing the actors we miss so much.
BBC Worldwide has announced it will be realising the lost 1966 Doctor Who story ‘The Power of the Daleks’ in a brand new black and white animation based on the programme’s original audio recordings, surviving photographs and film clips will be released 50 years to the day after its only UK broadcast on BBC One. The episoses featured second doctor Patrick Troughton taking over from William Hartnell in the first ever Time Lord regeneration as the Time Lord and his companions Polly (Anneke Wills) and Ben (Michael Craze) do battle with the Daleks on the planet Vulcan.
