Doctor Who: The Moonbase Animation Sample [VIDEO]

With the January 20th release date almost upon us, the BBC have shared an animated clip from the forthcoming Doctor Who DVD release The Moonbase.

The clip is from the third episode of the Troughton serial which marked the second coming of the Cybermen. Only the second and fourth installments remain intact as aired originally on television. Thus, the BBC commissioned Planet 55 Studios to recreate the missing episodes from off the air soundtrack recordings. You may remember that the studio is also responsible for the wonderful animated reconstructions that appeared on the recent Tenth Planet and Reign of Terror releases.

Based on the released clip, the animation appears to be top-notch and somehow manages to make the early Cybermen even creepier than their live action counterparts; that may be just me, though! So fellow Whovian’s, what do you think about the quality of the animation on The Moonbase? Will you be picking this up?

UK readers can order the DVD from Amazon for just £13.97. Meanwhile American fans can get their copy of The Moonbase from Amazon for $22.48.

“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.
