Lost Troughton Stories to be Animated

Doctor Who fans will soon be treated to two of the show’s lost stories from the 1960s in a brand new format.

The episodes won’t be shown in their original form but 1967 stories “The Evil of the Daleks” and “The Abominable Snowmen” are due to be revived in animated form instead, reports UK newspaper, The Mirror.

With no full copies of the original episodes found, the BBC has commissioned animation teams to bring the stories back to life in a new format, with photos and sound recordings as a reference to ensure accuracy.

These latest animated episodes are expected to arrive in 2021.
