    Due to the recent release of The Invasion with episodes 1 and 4 (the missing ones) animated, I was wondering what other mising stories people wanted released as an animation. I personally want The Crusade, because it will complete Season Two, it's a very good story, there are only two missing episodes and that pure music section at the end of episode two annoys me; I have no idea what happens.
    So, what missing story do you want on DVD animated?

    Top of the list - 'The Celestial Toymaker'

    Whether or not it's anyone's favourite, I think The Dalek Masterplan has to be high on the discussion list. Of course the number of missing episodes and length of time to animate them would probably be a bit of a hindrance.

    Recently, I dug up and watched my old VHS copy of Shada... While watching it, I was thinking to myself that it would be nice to see this on DVD as the VHS quality... is err... VHS quality. Then I thought, hey, they can animate the missing bits now! On the VHS version, Tom Baker narrates the missing scenes.

    Well, I think there are some classic black & white missing episodes that should get the treatment first, but I wouldn't mind it being done with Shada as well, though the difference would be that Shada did not having complete missing episodes, but rather scenes that are missing (because they were never completed)... So it would mean switching from live action to animation right within the episodes themselves. The other difference is that the audio will have to be created with the animation. In other words, if this was done now, they would have to get the actors back to speak their lines for the missing bits... and not all of them are still with us unfortunately. Denis Carey who played Professor Chronotis died 20 years ago, Gerald Campion who played Porter died as well (2002). Perhaps the actors that played those respective parts in the Big Finish audio drama with Paul McGann would reprise their roles?

    Anyway, just thinking out loud here... well, perhaps not out loud... unless you count the keyboard clicking noise as I type this Wink

    Cheers,
    Louis

    I think I would go for the "Ice warriers", "the Abominable Snowmen" and "The Tenth Planet" (in that order). Obviously the "Ice warriers" and "The Tenth Planet" would be easier since more than 50% of the story is available in live action, "the Abominable Snowmen" would have to be mainly animated.

    I would tend to think "The Tenth Planet" would be at the very top of the list, because of the centrality of the story and the relative ease with which it could be completed. It's not necessarily the one I'd want first, but I can see it as being one of the ones they'd quickly get out of the way.

    The remake of Shada had been animated to an extent, as a BBCi webcast, so I doubt that it would be high on anyones list for a remake.

    If I were a betting man, I would think that stories like The Tenth Planet with one, or The Reign of Terror, The Crusade, The Moonbase, and/or The Ice Warriors with two missing episodes are the stories most likely to receive this kind of treatment. I doubt very much that stories with more than half of the episodes missing will get this treatment as they already had their existing episodes released on DVD, and too much of those stories are missing to give enough of a a cue to any potential animators, especially for sets that do not appear in the existing episodes, and it would most likely be prohibitively expensive to animate more than two episodes for the amount of sales that the classic DVD range typically generates per title. Now, if sales of The Invasion and any successors are high enough to justify it, then "fantastic"! But I would not hold my breath for a release of the stories that are mostly of completely missing from the BBC archives unless the economics change.

    Yep, agree with all that, taras. Still, if we're talking total fantasy, economics-not-a-factor kinda wishing here, I'd personally slide "Marco Polo" to the top of my personal list.

    My vote would be "The Power of the Daleks". My arguement is that since it is the first Troughton serial, it would be nice to have the first serial of each doctor intact. While yes, I do agree the plot is a lil predictiable it would be nice to see the Second Doctor orientation sequence.

    while I'm on this topic, the only in story reason for the regeneration, from Hartnell to Troughton was Harnell's line "this old body is growing thin", I didn't catch anything to explain why in "Power", althought I could have just missed since the recon I got was a few gens old.

    Doctor... who?

    That's true. I remember the webcast now. I should revisit that too. As I recall it though, it was not fully animated... not like Scream of the Shakra... (whatever it is called). It was more like an animated comic book if memory serves.

    They could even use the animation from the webcast to fill in the missing bits then on the DVD release.

    If I'm not mistaken continuity would be a problem as doctor number 4 would skip a few regenerations into the Guise of doctor number 8.

    Yes, you are so right. Doh! Eek! That would be a little problematic...

    I'd prefer to go with the ones that have the fewest missing episodes because it wouldn't require as much animation and we'd get to see a majority of live stuff.

    Among my choices are:

    "The Reign of Terror" 4 of 6 exist

    "The Crusade" 2 of 4 missing

    "The Tenth Planet" - missing one but some of the regeneration scenes were available on Lost in Time

    "The Ice Warriors" 2 of 6 missing

    "The Crusade" already has a DVD release, though. I'm not sure how willing they'd be to animate it if they've already released it as a mixed audio/audio-visual package.
