As was announced a few weeks ago, and we reported after Gallifrey One, episode four of “The Tenth Planet,” the holy grail of missing Doctor Who episodes which featured William Hartnell regenerating into Patrick Troughton, is going to be animated for that story’s DVD release later this year.

Well, as a way of proving it, a clip of the final scenes of the episode has been released on doctorwho.tv. The animation company for the project is Planet 55 Studios, who have evidently been working on it since all the way back in 2011. Way to keep it a secret, people. Let us know what you think of the animation and how it compares to the only surviving clip of “The Tenth Planet” episode 4, which is the regeneration itself. The DVD of “The Tenth Planet” will come out some time in September.
