Reign of Terror to be Animated!

Post by tony ingram on Wed Jun 08, 2011 3:25 pm

Doctor Who DVD producers 2Entertain have confirmed that the forthcoming DVD release of the William Hartnell serial 'The Reign of Terror' will have its two missing episodes (4 & 5) restored via the same method used on The Invasion a few years ago-with the still existing soundtrack married to brand new animation! If they can equal the quality of the work Cosgrove Hall did on The Invasion, this should be something special...

Look for "Doctor Who Anime". It was 2 years in the making and was uploaded to Youtube by it's creator only a few days ago. But was then deleted for varying reasons (all speculation so far). But of course once something is on the internet it's there forever, so you should be able to find it.

Anyway rumour has it that the bloke who created it has now been snapped up by the BBC and is working on this! So the animatin' is in safe hands.

I should imagine they'll at least consider doing The Tenth Planet and The Ice Warriors.

One of the Reign animators has confirmed they are going to be doing more than just that - "some of the lost stories people have been waiting to see since the 60s".

That sounds like rather more than just 10th Planet ep 4 and a couple of eps of Ice Warriors too. Oh, Web of Fear, Power, Evil, Fury... please God let it be!

Web of Fear first, for preference! I've loved that story since I first read the Target novelisation as a kid...

I've always been FASCINATED by Web of Fear, and the remaining ep did nothing to diminish that when I saw it on the LIT dvd.

I think I'm going to have to watch that again, now...and maybe dig out my old Downtime video, as well. I'm in a Yeti kind of mood after this discussion...

I've been rather out of touch on Dr Who news the last few years and I had no idea `The Invasion` had its first ep etc `animated` If I can ask please, was there continuity from the final scenes of `The Mind Robber`?

The animation was married up to the existing complete original audio track, so everything that was there on the original broadcast was in the animated version (though there was a continuity error with Zoe's outfit, as I recall-she should have been wearing the catsuit from The Mind Robber in the first episode, but wasn't). And it was actually both the first and fourth episodes they animated, to complete the story. The animation was even in black & white! I highly recommend it.

I'll have a look out for it Tony-thanks! I did wonder if the boys comic writer (I've forgotton his mame!) was delivered back `home` All I can actually recall from seeing it back in 1968 was that a missile was heading for the Tardis and had been fired from the `Dark` side of the Moon! I just have those vague memories of Ep one of `The Invasion`
