Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks to play in cinemas

The new — well, new-ish — animated series Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks will play in cinemas on Nov. 14, BBC America and Fathom Events announced Wednesday.

The Power of the Daleks was originally a live-action, six-part adventure, starring Patrick Troughton as the titular Time Lord. The project was broadcast in the U.K. way back in 1966, but the master negatives were destroyed in an archive purge in 1974. This new, animated version is based on original audio recordings, surviving photographs, and film clips.
