Doctor Who has been saving Earth long enough that a few episodes have actually been lost to history (and poor storage), but at least one fateful adventure is getting a major update. The BBC will re-release 1966 outing “The Power Of The Daleks” this fall, reconstructed as a six-part animated production with original audio and film clips.

Doctor Who gave fans plenty of notice that Steven Moffat would be leaving the series in 2017, though the question inevitably turns to when Peter Capaldi himself will regenerate into a new actor. We’ve heard some vague suggestions before, but at least according to Moffat, “I have no reason to suppose that I’m writing out a Doctor.”

It’s starting to seem as if The Neon Demon director Nicolas Winding Refn makes more headlines for the projects he doesn’t do, like Spectre or a potential Batgirl movie, and it seems we can add Doctor Who to the pile. Refn had apparently been turned down for directing an episode of the BBC staple, apart from his own designs on a movie.
