from the Doctor Who News site...

BBC Worldwide has officially announced the first full story featuring Patrick Troughton as the Doctor, The Power of the Daleks is to be released as a new animated version on the 50th anniversary of its first broadcast.

Doctor Who: The Power Of The Daleks will initially be exclusively released on BBC Store, with episode one available from Saturday 5th November at 5:50pm, and the others released on consecutive days thereafter. Readers can register their interest in the download at the BBC Store.

The story will become available online more widely from the 14th November, and will also be released on DVD in the United Kingdom on the 21st November (no other regions have been announced at present).

BBC America has confirmed that Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks will be screened on the channel shortly after its U.K. Release. The animated serial premieres Saturday, November 12 and will be available the following day to stream on BBCAmerica.com and on the BBC America app.

Hm, I should have BBC America again by then so I'll definitely be watching. Hope to get a DVD copy if it comes out around here.

FANTASTIC news! I had read all about the leaked segment a little over a week ago and was elated that this was finally going to be a reality!

Great, just that I don't have BBC America. Hopefully there will be a North American DVD release if BBCAmerica helped pay for the animation.

I just pre ordered it from Amazon UK came to about $20 including postage.  I would hope that it gets a US NTSC release as well  but as it was partly paid for by BBC America . BBC World Wide America's might have to wait a while before it comes out in the USA as BBC America might want to exploit it on the air a few times before letting a general DVD release go ahead in R1 land.

Then again BBC A knows a lot of people will import the R2 version. . . .

I've now seen a "Tweet" from BBC America confirming a DVD release in North America.  There were then lots of follow-up questions about when, and BluRay, but none of those seemed to be answered.  My guess is BBC America would want to get their moneys worth since they chipped in to animate it.  Maybe they'll have it out for Christmas, but I'm guessing more like 2017 for a release.

That is my point exactly. They will allow a DVD release in North America but naturally they want to get a return on there investment first. Especially as many people enjoy Dr. Who with out commercial interruption's and will wait for the DVD release especially when seeing something for the first time

Hope it sells like crazy, while I would rather have the original missing stories, I will purchase every animation they release. Im actually surprised that an American studio hasn't requested the rights to have an ongoing animated Doctor Who...Be it Tom Baker, Tennant, or entirely new version.

So the Beeb revealed the full list of extras today.

Seems to be a fabulous set with very little I can see people taking issue with overall.
Any word on a US release date yet?

The extra harken back to the days of the Doctor Who Restoration Team, biggest thing for me is the fact that there will be the standard story features with photos and interviews with the actors, photo gallery's and so on.

Hopefully this will jump start the classic DVD range once again

Yeah, I bought Web on dvd, but I hate how it doesn't even have a production subtitles tbh. That's probably my favorite extra on the DVDs mostly. I'm a tad surprised this isn't on Blu ray though considering it can be made in HD from start to finish animated.

One would hope that BBC Worldwide if this sells well will consider a special edition of Underwater Menace and The Web of Fear and give them a chance to correct an earlier bad decision

Underwater Menace would've been fine honestly if they did a more Web of Fear style recon (having a telesnap for even the opening is stupid, especially when the Hartnell titles would need no modification). I fail to understand why the Beeb wanted such a basic recon when the RT offered one on par with Web for free according to their site.

Simple the BBC were trying to kill the range to avoid paying for animation which they have now just done. Granted with the help of BBC America

Well, shows how the times have changed. If memory serves, the VHS range ended fairly well, with the Reign of Terror set. With the DVD range going our of print here, I kinda wonder what will be next for classic who.

Well if they decide to continue the animations and make a quick buck off of the fans the cheapest and quickest thing to do would be the 3 episodes of both Underwater Menace and The Web of Fear,. Animate 3 episode's, have John Kelly and crew whip up a documentary and a photo gallery, Paul V and Richard Bignell could do their traditional bits and then they have 2 low cost special edition DVDs ready to go.

Phil Morris has been hinting a lot at Web 3 being returned soon. So I think that'll probably get a special edition soon hopefully.
