Patrick Troughton as Doctor Who

BBC Worldwide Press Releases

Doctor Who Reconstructed: The Power of the Daleks

A groundbreaking release from BBC Audio which reconstructs a classic Doctor Who serial that no longer
exists in the BBC Television archives.


There are over one hundred episodes of Doctor Who missing from the BBC television archives.


Of these episodes only two elements survive: off-air sound recordings and off-screen 'telesnaps' showing images from the lost film.


This brand new and unique MP3-CD from BBC Audio has brought these two elements together for the very first time - presenting the telesnaps from this classic Doctor Who episode as a visual slide show of images over the original soundtrack, going some way to 'reconstructing' the original film episodes.


Starring Patrick Troughton as the second Doctor, The Power of the Daleks sees the first ever Doctor Who regeneration, in which his companions Ben (Michael Craze) and Polly (Anneke Wills) suspect that he is an impostor after his whole body apparently transforms before their very eyes.


But when the TARDIS materialises on the planet Vulcan, they must unite and fight for their lives together - against the evil Daleks!


MP3-CDs can be played on any compatible player. To view the visual elements, a PC or Mac home computer is required.


Doctor Who Reconstructed: The Power of the Daleks (MP3-CD) will be published by BBC Audio on 20 June 2005 and will be available from all good retailers, online at or by direct mail on: 0800 136 919.
