Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks: Miniseries (2016)
Tv Season Info
Although the audience isn't quite led by the hand, the pace is slower, more measured; tropes are more often explained rather than set down, and the action is sometimes contrived. That said, there's a satisfyingly mysterious tone to "Power".
Even in this new form, you still feel like you're watching a piece of television history.
The Power Of The Daleks is a classic in every sense, and in its political intrigue and the way it handles the Daleks -- not as shrieking grunts but as intelligent, scheming creatures -- it feels strangely contemporary.
What the series offers is a handsomely animated, charmingly nostalgic adventure that, in a very Doctor-like fashion, grants audiences the ability to see the past come to life again in a whole new way.
The animation can only capture a shadow of what made this story so special, but a shadow of something like The Power Of The Dalek is still well worth seeking out, all the more so for the remarkable nature of its resurrection.
