Take a trip back in time to the Doctor’s very first regeneration with Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks. First aired fifty years ago, 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 is based on the program’s original audio recordings, surviving photographs, and film clips.  The six-part adventure, presented in both color and black and white, 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 will be available to Barnes & Noble customers first on January 24, 2017, and will have a wide release on January 31, 2017.
