The Power of the Daleks is a curious bit of entertainment. It's a recreation of a lost story from the vast Doctor Who catalog. Apparently the BBC in a stunning bit of forward thinking erased a number of the vintage Doctor Who episodes so they re-use the magnetic tape the shows were recorded on. This splendid bit of insight has created a chasm in the Doctor Who lore with many of the vintage shows with the First and Second Doctors being completely or partially missing. The Power of the Daleks is one of the latter -- six episodes of a story which has been completely erased. Now they do have a soundtrack and that's the basis for this recreation. That original sound has been bonded with an animated recreation of the action which blends together to give something altogether different.

It's all rather typical for Who fans, but I found it very diverting. Recommended.
