The full HD film version of Power of the Daleks - the semi-professional reimagining of Patrick Troughton's first adventure as the Doctor - has been made available to watch for free online.
First released episodically in three parts, it was then shown at conventions worldwide, premièring at a special charity convention in Fareham on 1st September 2012.
Lasting 52 minutes, it features Nick Scovell as the Doctor, with cast members also including Nicholas Briggs, Lisa Bowerman, and Barnaby Edwards in the reworking of the six-part adventure. Adapted and directed by Scovell, it was made by the Doctor Who enthusiasts behind the highly successful Portsmouth stage productions of The Web of Fear, Fury From The Deep, The Evil of the Daleks, and The Dalek Masterplan (the latter renamed from the original 12-parter), with support from TNT Films and music by Martin Johnson.
A video of highlights from the Fareham convention - where the guests included original story director Christopher Barry, actress Anneke Wills, who played companion Polly in the TV version, Briggs, and Edwards - has also been released.
