It’s FREE STUFF FRIDAY and this one’s for all our loyal Whovians out there! As you may know by now, Fathom events and BBC Worldwide are thrilled to bring Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks to select cinemas nationwide for an exclusive event on Monday, November 14.
Lost since its premiere on the BBC 50 years ago, the full six-part story has now been meticulously animated based on the original audio, photographs and surviving film clips. One of the most celebrated Doctor Who stories of all time, this six-part adventure finds the newly regenerated Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) and his companions Polly (Anneke Wills) and Ben (Michael Craze) on the planet Vulcan battling his oldest foe – the Daleks. If that is not enough, the event will feature bonus content including interviews with members of the original cast!
And this weekend, courtesy of Fathom Events, Beyond the Marquee is giving you the opportunity to experience The Power of the Daleks on the big screen in YOUR town, with a pair of tickets to the event! So gather your friends and join your fellow Whovians for this exclusive cinemas event, 50 years in the making!

BBC AMERICA and Fathom Events present a one-night special theatrical screening event of Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks animated series on Monday, November 14, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. local time – 50 years after the original BBC broadcast – in advance of the premiere on BBC AMERICA on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 8:25pm ET.

The Power of the Daleks is one of the most celebrated Doctor Who adventures, and yet no complete film recordings are known to have survived. The master negatives were destroyed in an archive purge in 1974. This brand new animation, being released 50 years after its only UK broadcast, is based on the program’s original audio recordings, surviving photographs, and film clips. The six-part adventure features the regeneration – or as it was then called “renewal” – of First Doctor, William Hartnell, into Second Doctor, Patrick Troughton, and follows the Time Lord and his companions Polly (Anneke Wills) and Ben (Michael Craze) as they do battle with the Daleks on the planet Vulcan.
“Ahead of the premiere on BBC AMERICA, it is a rare treat to be able to bring the lost episode, Power of the Daleks, to life using modern animation techniques. Doctor Who cinema events have been incredibly successful, and this is extraordinary opportunity to allow a new generation of fans the opportunity to experience this classic adventure for the first time,” said Soumya Sriraman, EVP, Franchise and Digital Enterprises, BBC Worldwide North America.
“We’re pleased to continue our long-standing and successful partnership with BBC AMERICA to bring more fantastic Doctor Who content to the big screen,” said Fathom Events Vice President of Programming Kymberli Frueh. “The Whovians are always one of our biggest and most passionate groups of fans at the cinemas.”
Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks is produced and directed by Charles Norton, with character designs from acclaimed comic book artists Martin Geraghty and Adrian Salmon.
