The Power of the Daleks

Perhaps the most astonishing, most radical and most important Doctor Who story ever produced – brought back to life after 50 years!
How many Daleks are there on Vulcan?

‘‘Oh, it gave me goosebumps!” enthuses Anneke Wills of the trailer for the new animation that recreates otherwise lost episodes of Doctor Who from 1966. Anneke played the Doctor’s plucky companion Polly in 36 episodes of Doctor Who between 1966 and 1967. However, like so much of 1960s Doctor Who, two-thirds of her episodes are today missing from the BBC archives. That includes all six episodes of a story with a crucial place in the series’ history.

The Power of the Daleks was the first one with Patrick Troughton,” Anneke explains. “The very First Doctor, Bill Hartnell, well, he couldn’t carry on in such a demanding part – so they replaced him with Pat. And that’s where it all started: the idea you could have a new Doctor, the idea he wouldn’t be just the same as the last one. And clever old Pat made it work. Without him, without this brilliant story, the series couldn’t go on. There’d be no Doctor Who now.”
