Most Famous Lost Doctor Who Episode Returns… As Animation

Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff


One of the only bits of footage we still have of the final installment of the Doctor Who serial “The Tenth Planet” is of the First Doctor’s regeneration into the Second. That’s kind of crazy, because one, it’s the debut of the Cybermen, two, it’s the episode that introduced the idea that the Doctor can regenerate, which means that, three, it’s the final episode of the First Doctor, played by William Hartnell. No one’s really sure what’s happened to the BBC’s prints of the show, but the studio doesn’t have a print of it fit for broadcast. Planet 55 Studios, however, is creating an animated version of the final episode for the DVD release of “The Tenth Planet.” This is but a preview.
