Lost Episode Animations Cancelled

The BBC's weekly TV guide magazine "Radio Times" is reporting that future Doctor Who episode animations have been cancelled and that "The Abominable Snowman" will be the last one released.

The remaining Doctor Who animated specials, which have been restoring lost episodes for a new generation, have reportedly been scrapped by the BBC.

The latest entries in the series of releases include last year’s "The Evil of the Daleks" and "Galaxy 4", following Patrick Troughton’s Second Doctor and William Hartnell’s First Doctor respectively.

The collaborative project between BBC Studios and BBC America had made much progress towards giving die-hard Whovians a complete library of stories, but that looks as if it might now be cut short.

British tabloid newspaper, The Mirror reports that BBC America has pulled its funding from the project, meaning only the one story already in development will be released this year: "The Abominable Snowmen" (which recently dropped a teaser trailer).

BBC Studios declined to comment on the story when approached by RadioTimes.com.
