The announcement falls on the 53rd anniversary of the broadcast date of the original version’s last episode. The new animated version will be available on Limited Edition DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray Steelbook starting September 27, 2021.

Evil of the Daleks fills another gap in the lack Doctor Who content lost in the purge of the BBC archives shortly after the original transmission of the program. However, audio-only recordings of the seven episodes have survived and were used here to create an all-new, fully-animated presentation of this lost classic, featuring the surviving original second episode.

The Doctor (Patrick Troughton) stars alongside his traveling companion Jamie (Frazer Hines) in this recreation in which the TARDIS was stolen. The story unfolds as the Doctor and Jamie set out in search of the missing time machine, bringing them face to face with a very old foe – the Daleks, who have a new blueprint to conquer the universe. The Daleks force the Doctor to aid them in their quest to “humanize” themselves into more deadly living weapons. This particular story is notable for introducing the new mate of Doctor Victoria Waterfield (Deborah Watling), first seen in the second surviving episode, and also for introducing Emperor Dalek.
