BBC America Resurrects Doctor Who: Power of the Daleks!

Daleks 2

Considered to be one of the finest Doctor Who adventures, Power of the Daleks was first broadcast fifty years ago. Then, as happened with a number of episodes from the original series, its master negatives were destroyed in an ‘archival purge.’

Now, working from photographs, audio recordings and film clips, Power of the Daleks is set to return as a specially commissioned animated series from BBC America and BBC Worldwide.

The six-part adventure features the regeneration, or as it was then called ‘renewal’, of first Doctor, William Hartnell into second Doctor, Patrick Troughton.

Doctor Who: Power of the Daleks will premiere on BBC America on Saturday, November 12th. Follow the jump for more.
