A 'lost' Doctor Who episode will be animated for release on DVD.
The Tenth Planet, starring first Doctor William Hartnell, will be reconstructed using Thetamation processes, doctorwho.tv revealed.
The episode has been missing from the BBC Archives from the mid-1970s. Other 'lost episodes' The Reign of Terror 4 and 5 have previously been constructed using the same technology.
Fans can look forward to seeing the introduction of the Cybermen in the episode, as well as Hartnell's departure.
Dan Hall, commissioning editor of the Doctor Who DVD range, told the Gallifrey One convention: "It's a real thrill to be bringing such an iconic Doctor Who episode back to life. Without the events established in The Tenth Planet episode 4, there would be no Doctor Who as we know it!"
The Tenth Planet is currently scheduled for release in late 2013. »
