So, Monday Nov 14th, I went and saw POWER OF THE DALEKS at the Regal Pavilion Stadium 14 & RPX in Port Orange, FL.

I really enjoyed it.  There was a few moments of adjustment to the animation style – the way they moved at times wasn’t the smoothest, but before long the story sucked me in and I didn’t notice or care any more.

Going into the show, I wasn’t 100% sure which story Power of the Daleks was; to be honest, I was thinking it was EVIL OF THE DALEKS – which introduced one of my least favourite (ie, most annoying/useless) companions, Victoria Waterfield.  (I didn’t check to confirm, because I didn’t want to “spoil” myself, as my recollection was obviously not the best.)  So, I was pleasantly surprised to discover it wasn’t, that it was the first story of Patrick Troughton as The Doctor, and had Ben and Polly as the companions (much more palatable than Victoria, believe that.)

Seeing this on the big screen was great fun; there wasn’t a big crowd, sadly, as I was one of maybe twenty, twenty-five tops, in the theatre.  But it was good to do it in the theatre with others.

I imagine they’ll be putting this out on Blu Ray; I certainly hope so.
