The story follows the very first crew of the TARDIS as they land in a petrified forest on an alien planet. Determined to explore, the Doctor (William Hartnell) leads his companions into the metal city, where they discover danger at every corner and what will become his deadliest enemy, the mutant Daleks.

Originally broadcast as seven 25-minute episodes, the Terry Nation story has now been edited down to 75 minutes and the result colourised.

With brand new sound and a new score – created by Mark Ayres – The Daleks has been gloriously updated, while ensuring the original classic story remains as thrilling as it was when it was first seen back in 1963.

The colourised version will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, and as a Steelbook next February with the original seven episodes in black and white included.

The edited and colourized version of The Daleks will air on BBC Four at 7:30pm on 23 November.
