Doctor Who “Galaxy 4” teaser released

The partly-missing First Doctor (William Hartnell) story, Galaxy 4, is returning as an animation, due for release as a DVD, Blu-Ray & Steelbook on 15th November 2021.

Galaxy 4 (alternatively spelled Galaxy Four) is the mostly-missing first serial of the third season of Doctor Who, which originally aired in four weekly episodes from 11th September to 2nd October 1965.

Audio-only recordings of all four episodes have survived from this classic story, and have been used to create a brand new, fully animated story, filling the gaps alongside the original surviving Episode 3 and over five minutes of original footage from the otherwise lost Episode 4.

The Doctor and his travel companions, Vicki and Steven land the TARDIS on a planet which is on the verge of total annihilation, as it drifts too close to the three suns it orbits. Trapped on the planet with them are the Drahvins, a race of warrior women, and the Reptillian Rills.

The Drahvins want to steal the Rills spacehip to escape the planet’s death throes, and enlist the Doctor’s help, which he is forced to give when Maaga, the cunning Drahvin leader, keeps Vicki and Steven as hostage. Even though the Doctor is determined to broker a peace deal between the two sides, Maaga doesn’t trust him, or the Rills…

This two disc release gives fans the opportunity to enjoy the four new animated episodes of Galaxy Four in either colour or black and white. The release will also include:

  • Remastered surviving original of Episode 3
  • Remastered surviving clip from Episode 1
  • Telesnap reconstructions of Episodes 1, 2 and 4.
  • Audio commentaries
  • A Making Of documentary
  • Finding Galaxy 4 documentary
  • Photo gallery
  • Production subtitles
