Doctor Who The power of Daleks live events

Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks

November 2016

About this event

For the first time in 50 years - the rebirth of a lost Doctor Who story was presented on the big screen with state of the art animation.

The Power of the Daleks is one of the most celebrated Doctor Who adventures, and yet no complete film recordings 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 programme’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, screened exclusively in cinemas around Australia for one week only.
