The BFI will be screening the new colour animation of Doctor Who: the Evil of the Daleks on 12th September, as part of the BFI Southbank programme for September to early October 2021.
In The Evil of the Daleks, the Doctor (played by Patrick Troughton) and Jamie (Frazer Hines) are transported back 100 years to 1866 where they encounter the Daleks, who threaten to destroy the TARDIS unless they help them isolate the unique human quality that has led to past Dalek defeats – which can be used to create a new race of super Daleks.
Notable for being the story that introduced new companion Victoria Waterfield (Deborah Watling) along with the Dalek Emperor, the majority of this story is believed to have been lost.
By using a complete audio recording and a new colour animation, the BFI invite you to sit back and enjoy The Evil of the Daleks, almost 55 years since it was first broadcast.
The seasons also includes celebrations of Denis Villeneuve, director of the hotly anticipated adaptation of Frank Herbert’s epic adventure Dune, out 21st October, Richard Pryor and the best of contemporary Arab cinema.
