An updated version of Patrick Troughton’s first story as the Second Doctor will be available on both DVD and Blu-ray
While no complete film recordings of The Power of the Daleks are known to have survived the purge of the BBC’s archive in 1975, fresh animation in high definition breathes new life into this much-loved story.
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 VAM on the 2016 release.
New additional material includes:
- 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
- Easter Eggs
- Audio commentaries by Anneke Wills on each episode
- Animation test footage
- Photo Gallery, including previously unreleased and rediscovered full colour on-set photos from 1966.

Update: the press release erroneously listed The Highlanders as an extra, but it has now been confirmed that this was originally planned as an audio track but couldn't included owing to space limitations.
