The Second Doctor battles shape-shifting aliens at Gatwick Airport! The missing 1967 story The Faceless Ones is back on our screens for the first time in more than 50 years. This is how it was done…

the Doctor, wearing a device placed on him by the Chameleons.

The TARDIS materialises on the runway at Gatwick Airport, just as a plane is taking off . Chased by the police, the Doctor and his friends - Polly, Ben and Jamie - scatter into the airport buildings, where Polly witnesses a murder and is then captured. Ben vanishes too, and Jamie and the Doctor soon discover that their friends are just the latest young people to disappear. It transpires that Chameleon Tours is off ering more than just budget package holidays. And that the Earth is on the brink of an ingenious alien invasion…

Originally broadcast in 1967, only two of the six episodes of The Faceless Ones survive. Happily, however, this makes it an ideal candidate to be animated by BBC Studios.

The new version of The Faceless Ones is directed by AnneMarie Walsh, who worked as an animator on 2016’s The Power of the Daleks, was animation director on Shada (2017) and also directed the animation segment of The Wheel in Space, included as an extra with last year’s release of The Macra Terror. “I’ve worked in animation for 15 years,” she tells Doctor Who Magazine. “While I specialise in animating, I’ve also storyboarded, designed backgrounds and characters, worked in visual eff ects and motion graphics, edited, been an animation director, and directed and produced on other projects.”
