Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks animated series
gets theatrical release

A special cinema event in Australia from Saturday 12 November
Featuring Patrick Troughton’s debut as the Doctor

BBC Worldwide ANZ and Sharmill Films today announced a limited-run theatrical screening of
Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks animated series from Saturday 12 November for one week only, ahead of its release on DVD.  The cinema event will also feature exclusive bonus content including interviews with members of the original cast.

Tickets for Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks can be purchased by visiting www.sharmillfilms.com.au for information on participating cinemas, or at the cinema box offices. Fans throughout Australia will be able to enjoy the event in select cinemas through Sharmill Films.

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.

“This is a great opportunity for Doctor Who fans to see all six-parts of Power of the Daleks brought to life using modern animation techniques, and to experience this as a shared event,” said Louise Hill, Live Entertainment Executive for BBC Worldwide ANZ.
Natalie Miller AO, Sharmill Films Executive Director, said: “The state-of-the-art presentation of these iconic lost episodes will be a landmark event in the world of Doctor Who, and we are hugely excited for Australian fans to discover them on the big screen.”
Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks is produced and directed by Charles Norton, with character designs from acclaimed comic book artists Martin Geraghty and Adrian Salmon. It will be released on DVD by Roadshow Entertainment on 14 December 2016.
