The Reign of Terror Preview

Back in June it was announced that Big Finish were working with 2|entertain on the release of an animated partial-reconstruction of the 1964 Doctor Who adventure The Reign of Terror.

A few days ago, the results of this animation were revealed at the Day Of The Daleks preview screening in Sydney, Australia – and they’re looking pretty impressive:

The Reign of Terror is a French Revolution-set six-part thriller of which two episodes are missing. The project to animate episode four and five has presumably been a long one, rather than a quick job that has taken three months!

We reckon this looks fantastic, and hopefully – fingers crossed – there is a general willingness at the BBC and 2|entertain to push on and create intelligently animated versions of other missing Doctor Who adventures (after all, we all know that there is no shortage of good intentions at Big Finish!)
