Doctor Who: The Abominable Snowmen animation starring Patrick Troughton as the Doctor is now available online and in store on DVD, Blu-ray and a Limited Edition Blu-ray Steelbook, available to pre-order now.
Doctor Who: The Abominable Snowmen is a six-part series based on audio recordings of the original episodes. Most of the six-part adventure series was lost soon after the programme’s original transmission in 1967 and only the audio recordings of the episodes survived.
Doctor Who: The Abominable Snowmen follows the Doctor as he returns to the Himalayas 300 years after his first visit to the Holy Ganta, an ancient relic he was given many centuries ago by the grateful monks at Det-Sen Monastery. On arriving, the Doctor is blamed for a series of brutal murders in the area, however companions Jamie McCrimmon and Victoria Waterfield discover the true culprits – the previously peaceful Yeti that live in seclusion on the mountainside have apparently turned violent.
The Doctor must convince the monks that not only is he not their enemy, but the real foe is living amongst them. Their ancient Master, Padmasambhava, is being controlled by an alien entity known only as the Great Intelligence.
The release gives fans the opportunity to enjoy the six new fully animated presentations of this lost classic, which will be released alongside the one surviving segment, Episode Two.
Executive producer for Big Finish Creative, Gary Russell, told Doctor Who Magazine, “The Abominable Snowmen is one of those amazing stories from the 1960s that never outstays its welcome. From the mountains of beautiful Tibet to the outer space environs where the Great Intelligence lives it offers a marvellous opportunity to present an animated reimagining of this classic story, created by the same teams who made Fury From the Deep and Galaxy 4 – Digitoonz handling the 2D animation, with Shapeshifter taking care of post-production.”
