That's interesting. If they're going through the trouble of animating it, I guess we can assume there's little chance that whoever is holding onto it will allow it to see the light of day.

Philip Morris found all of the missing episodes from "Web of Fear," a few years ago, but someone stole the third episode (first appearance of The Brigadier) before it was returned to the BBC.

I was thinking about that. Maybe the BBC is trying to tell these collectors that they're not going to bother negotiating with them anymore. Sucks that some people have to hoard something special like that, but at least we have the audio to make animations.

Some previews of the animation have been released. First a re-creation of the original teaser:

Then a scene from the episode:

It looks like they've moved to 3D models for animation.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

Can't say I'm terribly impressed with the 3D models; they seem a little too automaton-like, and don't move naturally.

Looks like they're really trying to get the Troughton seasons animated. This just leaves "The Highlanders," "The Underwater Menace," "The Abominable Snowmen," "The Wheel in Space," and "The Space Pirates." Pretty good record considering how many of the Troughton episodes are lost.

After that, the first and second Hartnell seasons are nearly complete (missing only all seven eps of "Marco Polo," and two of "The Crusade.") Since those are historicals, I wouldn't mind if they just left them as tele-snap recons -- especially "Marco Polo," since most of that story's appeal lies with the sets and costumes, which would be lost in an animated recon, especially if they can prioritize something like "The Daleks' Masterplan."

That only leaves the third Hartnell season, which is a real mess as far as missing episodes go.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

I'm guessing that they'll show "Evil of the Daleks" on BBC America like have the previous animated recons?

Not in any hurry to buy these on DVD; I'll just wait for the complete blu-ray seasons that are, presumably, happening down the road.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

Looks like they're really making some inroads on this...



Updated with new graphic from here:

Fourteen stories have been reconstructed, and twelve remain incomplete. ("The Abominable Snowmen" hasn't been announced, but it's being worked on.)

For Troughton, the only incomplete stories left are "The Highlanders," two episodes of "The Underwater Menace," "The Wheel in Space," and "The Space Pirates."

Going through that list, I would be fine if they left the historicals as telesnap reconstructions on the eventual complete season blu-rays: "Marco Polo," "The Crusade," "The Smugglers," and "The Highlanders." Hell, I'd even throw in "The Savages," too, if it means we could "The Dalek's Masterplan" done.

If we throw out the historicals with telesnaps available, that leaves "The Myth Makers," "The Dalek's Masterplan," "The Massacre," and "The Celestial Toymaker," as the only Hartnell era stories left. And if we toss out "The Highlanders," that's only one Troughton story per season that needs to be animated, and "The Underwater Menace," only needs two episodes done.

Hartnell years one and two would be complete, and each Troughton season would be only one story away from completion, and Hartnell's third season would only need four stories done.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

I have a feeling they’ll animate everything so they can have both complete season sets on Blu and also have complete seasons to sell in syndication packages.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

According to this here Reddit, "Marco Polo," "The Crusade," "The Dalek's Masterplan," and "The Highlanders" are the least likely to be animated. That reddit also explains why some episodes are more difficult to animate than others because of things like frequent costume changes, too many sets, and... tartan.

If they are unable to animate everything, I would gladly sacrifice the telesnapped historicals for "The Dalek's Masterplan." And I'd also be cool if they left out episode seven of that story, "The Feast of Steven," or did a live-action recreation of it like they did with "Mission to the Unknown," since it's a Christmans Special and isn't necessary to the greater story. Though a quick google seems to indicate that telesnaps exist for "Feast of Steven," though that's the only episode of "The Dalek's Masterplan" that has them, so I'd also be fine with them leaving it as telesnaps.

I also find the historicals to be dull as dirt, too...

And, for the record, I'd like to punch whoever stole episode three of "The Web of Fear" in the dick.

Russell T. Davies is coming back as a showrunner in 2023, in time for Who's 60th anniversary.

Yeah, I really wish Jodie had worked out better. I loved her concept but she just had poor scripts.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

The last season, FLUX, is out on Blu/DVD in March.
No word yet on the first of the 2022 specials that aired on New Years Day.
Certainly hope all three are lumped together in one set but pretty sure BBC will release them separate so we have to buy 3 releases. I gather a set of all of Jodi's stuff will come out in 2023.

Flux was a big step up, though the ending was a bit soft. I was hoping for more on the Timeless Child stuff but they're probably saving it for her farewell story.

Bad news...

https://www.radiotimes.com/tv/sci-fi...led-newsupdate

https://screenrant.com/doctor-who-mi...-why-explained

The plug has been pulled on the animated recreations of the lost episodes. BBC America won't be funding any more of these after "The Abominable Snowmen." Hopefully they'll be able to secure funding elsewhere to complete more stories. Really want to be able to get the complete run on blu-ray (though I could live with telesnap recons for the historical stories like "Marco Polo," "The Crusade," "The Smugglers," and "The Highlanders," as those stories all have telesnaps and stills available.)

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

BBCA's enthusiasm for the animated recreations always seemed rather lackluster, as they'd dump them out as a single marathon screening. I don't think they even re-ran them. They seem relatively cheap to make, especially compared to producing new episodes of the show, but I don't know how many viewers of the new show are interested in the older incarnation. There's maybe additional value to them now that they're on AMC+, although there they're in isolation from the rest of the old serials, which aren't on the service.

Britbox was mentioned in one of the articles, and while that makes sense from a consumer standpoint, in that Britbox has the existing live-action serials, and could incorporate the animated episodes into the proper seasons, I don't know if Britbox has the budget to actually commission and help pay for the animation process.

That sucks, it seemed they were really on a good track. I need to buy the last couple ones that came out before they go OOP or something stupid.

Still need The Wargames. That still hasn't been reissued.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

Looks like BBC will be releasing
Eve of the Daleks and the coming Legend of the She-Devils as one set on DVD and Bluray June 28th. Eve of the Daleks and the coming Legend of the She-Devils as one set on DVD and Bluray June 28th.

I guess the last of the Whitticker specials will be separate. Gotta' milk that TARDIS money but at least we don't have to buy EACH individually.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

I ordered a few things from the Amazon sale, came pretty quickly.




And like many of the animated releases they don’t put the story number any more:



So I figured I could use my handy dandy label maker and now I know where the story goes:




I also had to replace the case for Evil as it came cracked.
