Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks by John PeelNovelization of the Doctor Who TV episodes/story of the same name.
Disoriented after his regeneration, the Doctor takes the TARDIS to the Earth colony Vulcan. Ben and Polly are disturbed - the Doctor isnt the man he used to be.
The Doctor too is worried. The colonists have found the remains of two Daleks - which they plan to revive.
Once revived, the Daleks claim that they are content to serve humanity. Can it really be true? Or do they have their own, more sinister plans?
The Power of the Daleks in COLOUR!
There they discover a human colony under threat from a group of rebels, and a crashed space capsule — containing some dormant Daleks. But chief scientist Lesterson is keen to wake them up…. The result is a product which does its best to match the original shot-for-shot, with the visuals edited to match the pacing of the soundtrack rather than the other way around. That said, the animation does of course owe its success to the original transmission, and it would be impossible without the original soundtrack, recorded off-air by a fan in and subsequently restored by the audio genius that is Mark Ayres, who has also created a new Dolby 5. And of course, the story itself is a bona fide classic. It avoids the pitfall of so many six-part stories, which have an unfortunate habit of sagging in the middle, by featuring multiple plots which twist and turn their way through the running time, keeping up the intrigue for characters and viewers alike.
The Power of the Daleks was the third serial of season 4 of Doctor Who. While all six episodes are missing from the BBC archives as of , an animated reconstruction based on the surviving audio and video was released on the BBC Store on the 50th anniversary of the serial's original airing, 5 November ,  and a DVD was released on 21 November , Further, a version in colour was released on BBC Store on 31 December followed by a Special Edition Bluray, containing both the black and white and colour versions, from 6 February Mistaken for an official Earth Examiner, the Doctor discovers that a scientist called Lesterson is attempting to reactivate three inanimate Daleks found in a crashed space rocket. The colonists refuse to heed the Doctor's dire warnings that the Daleks are dangerous. Once reactivated, the Daleks secretly begin to reproduce themselves in a bid to seize control of the Earth colony. Ben and Polly are bewildered after watching the First Doctor transform into a completely different, younger man.
But re-watching it this week has given me an altogether different appreciation for the story. The original video was lost to time, along with 97 other episodes from early Doctor Who history scrubbed from BBC archives and potentially lost forever. Keeping it black-and-white was a nice touch, too. Usually Daleks are pepperpot rage machines; simple, faceless soldiers, an endless sea that inspires fear through their sheer strength of numbers. Daleks are clever. They are cunning and ruthless, and they will do everything they can to undermine their foes until the perfect time to strike. Writer David Whitaker focuses on this truly fearsome aspect in the serial, in which human colonists on Vulcan have discovered and are experimenting on a group of deactivated Daleks they believe they can control as their own servants.
