BBC Store, the online digital streaming and downloading service for the UK, is reportedly set to close just 18 months after its launch.
The BBC Store, operated commercially by BBC Worldwide and launched in November 2015, has opened up the BBC Archives, bringing you over 60 years of programming to watch instantly.
This includes adventures in time and space, with an incredibly wide range of classic and new Doctor Who stories being made easily available for fans to purchase through their website, as well as exclusives to the online Store.
Thinking back to November 2016, the BBC Store exclusively released the animated version of the Second Doctor adventure, 'The Power of the Daleks' in both its original black and white format and later in colour.
This story was previously missing, but has been brought back to life as an animation for fans to enjoy once again!

BBC Books have announced the release of the very first collection of Time Lord verse, 'Doctor Who: Now We Are Six Hundred'.
Written by author James Goss, the book features illustrations by former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies – his first role as an illustrator, using the comic artist skills he developed in his youth.
'Doctor Who: Now We Are Six Hundred', will be published on 14th September 2017, just two weeks before this year’s National Poetry Day on 28th September.
A gentle and humorous riff on the classic 'Now We Are Six', this is a collection of charming, funny and whimsical poems that celebrate the joys, sorrows and wonders of Time Lord life.
Russell T Davies says: “I’ve been drawing for Doctor Who long before I was writing it, so it was like time-travel for me, voyaging back to that young scribbler who used to cover his school desk with Daleks!”
