The hugely talked about and well-received animation of the Doctor Who classic, ‘The Power of the Daleks premieres this Saturday on BBC America. But it is not alone!
This classic 60’s episode will be joined by a further 12 Dalek themed episodes as they take over BBC America.
The invasion starts at 6am ET with the 1975 fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) episode – ‘Genesis of the Daleks’. The Time Lords foresee a time in which the Daleks will dominate all other life forms in the universe. So disturbing is this possibility, that they break their own Laws in an attempt to prevent it. And who better to send on this quest than the Doctor?
Then at 9am ET we jump from the fourth to the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) as the series 2 finale, ‘Doomsday’ broadcasts. Two mighty armies wage war across the Earth; terror emerges from beneath Torchwood Tower; the Doctor faces a dilemma.
Another Tenth Doctor/Dalek episode follows at 10am ET with ‘Daleks In Manhattan’. Part 1 of the 2007 series 3, 2-parter. The TARDIS lands in 1930s New York, where people are disappearing from the streets.
We won’t be left hanging as part 2 – ‘Evolution Of The Daleks’ follows straight after at 11am ET. An episode that sees the Doctor form a deadly alliance to save humanity.
Then from midday, we start a further Tenth Doctor 2-parter with ‘Stolen Earth’ and ‘Journey’s End’. The 2007 series 4 finale saw the return of the Dalek’s creator, Davros and the joining together of all those closest to the Doctor.
Following at 2pm ET we have a change of Doctor even though the enemy stays the same in the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) series 5 episode ‘Victory of the Daleks’. The Doctor and Amy meet Winston Churchill during a trip back to World War II, where they also encounter the Daleks as we have never seen them before.
At 3pm ET we jump to series 7 and ‘Asylum of the Daleks’. Kidnapped by his oldest foe, the Doctor is forced on an impossible mission – to a place even the Daleks are too terrified to enter…
Then we come bang up-to-date with the Twelfth Doctor episodes ‘Into the Dalek‘ (series 8) at 4pm ET. Capaldi’s first encounter with the pepperpots. And at 5pm we get the series 9 2-parter ‘The Magician’s Apprentice’ and the ‘The Witch’s Familiar’. Another first as the Twelfth Doctor encounters Davros.
And if you still want more before we reach the main event. Sit tight as we go back in time to enjoy the 2013 Christmas episode, ‘The Time of the Doctor’ at 7pm. The final farewell for Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor. The Doctor must sacrifice everything to save a town called Christmas from the Time Lord’s greatest enemies.
This Dalek marathon concludes at 8:25pm ET with the excellent first episode of ‘The Power of the Daleks’ animation. A second Doctor classic episode for all to enjoy.
The remaining 5 episodes will premiere on consecutive days at 8:25pm ET.
