    The next missing story to be released (in 2020) in animated form is The Faceless Ones Seems that they will be animating all 6 episodes even though episodes 1 and 3 still exist. Looking forward to it already!

  4. Yes, and hopefully not edited like the previous one (Macra Terror, which doesn't include the 'rough and tumble scene').

    .....Why'd they cut that out??
     
  6. Stupidity? Laziness? Poor creative oversight?

    One of the biggest challenges with these animations is clothing changes. That sequence have The Doctor, Ben, Polly and Jamie changing from their clothes from The Moonbase to clothes (or in Ben's case, just pants ;) ) used only in that particular scene. The Doctor gets dressed up "fancy" which he then proceeds to destroy in the "rough and tumble machine" back to his normal. Polly also gets a hair cut. Then after the scene there's yet another clothing change to what everyone wears for most of the rest of the serial. If they wanted to put that scene in, where one-off clothing is an integral part of it, they would need to create new models (in some cases more than one) for each of the characters, plus the models for The Moonbase outfits, and this can be incredibly time consuming as you need to rig each and everyone of them. In the end the team decided to just stick to one clothing setup (and in Polly's case, her shorter hair) for the whole story, which saved a lot of time and money.

    Clothing changes are also why animating the historicals, which by their nature have loads of important clothing changes, not to mention large casts, are a logistical nightmare. It's actually easier to animate 2 episodes that already exist in live action than it is to build character models.

    54 years after its original BBC television broadcast, BBC Studios will premiere a new production of Mission to the Unknown, a missing Doctor Who episode that has been faithfully recreated by a team of students, graduates and staff of the University of Central Lancashire in the UK.

    Well the whole thing is out now, and it's thoroughly enjoyable. To the point where the original is now the episode I want back the least.

    This thread is now *years* overdue for a retitling. My hopes shoot up for a moment whenever it pops up every few months, only to be dashed.

    This is extremely well done except for the annoying narration. Extremely painful to listen to.

    Not saying we don't need the original back, just that the result was enjoyable and I'd rather get back one of the ones that doesn't have an upscale fan-produced reproduction. At least I sorta feel I've seen this one now.

    Anyway, this was never an episode high on my list to get back.

    I definitely preferred it to the animated recreations, but then this particular episode had none of the famous faces of the regular cast members... it'd be very difficult to pull off an episode with a stand-in for Hartnell or Troughton.
