I've read in various locations that trying to recoup the expense of animating a lost story is a tough path.

I have wondered if it would make sense to fully animate a story in the current popular CGI style and give it a limited movie release to help regain the expense, of course use the surviving audio as the sound track?

But I think they would have to dress the look up so they are appealing to a modern audience.
Release it as one complete movie, or an episode a week like the old film serials of the long ago past, every Saturday night a trip to the theater for that latest episode!

I loved how the one animated Troughton story was done. I'd buy others to fill important gaps in my DVD collection.

Movies would be a cool idea. But there are some more animated lost stories coming!

The animated episodes for Invasion were nice, but I do hope in future ventures they spend a little more of animation budget. The Sealab 2021 style of animation worked, but it felt very stiff.

It would be nice to have, but I don't see it happening. I could see direct to dvd release, but it goes back to the production vs sales return if it would be profitable to do so.

Yes, there is a market for it with us classic fans, but just as with the action figures, I think the decision making people feel that our market niche is not as important or profitable than Nu Who.

At least we have the BBC soundtracks. Probably going to be the closest we will get to experiencing them.
