We have been given a very cool early Christmas present this year from the folks at Doctor Who. For the last few weeks on BBC America, and some time ago in select theaters, a new animation of a classic lost series of The Doctor battling the Daleks was created from surviving audio of the episodes. For the first time in fifty years, we can witness “The Power of the Daleks,” meet me after the jump for my review.
One thing I have enjoyed about “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” animated series is the clever way the episode titles have also been the titles of classic rock tunes. With The Bride being such a huge Journey junkie, you can imagine this episode in particular was must-see television in our household.
