When Doctor Who took streaming platform Twitch by story twice in the past year with a massive marathon, many episodes were conspicuously absent — even if they weren’t among the many missing or incomplete serials from the venerable 1963-89 science fiction series.
Specifically, many episodes featuring Terry Nation’s Daleks, bug-eyed fascists among the most iconic sci-fi baddies, were skipped. Rights issues were probably to blame; many later Dalek stories also were missing from BritBox, the official streaming home of classic Doctor Who, until very recently.
Now, Twitch is making up for it with a mini-marathon just for the Daleks, taking place over six days starting 10 a.m. Pacific on Feb. 17.

Two of the later episodes, the Fifth Doctor thriller “Resurrection” and Sixth Doctor tale “Revelation,” are the only two classic Who stories not to have been novelized, but that too will change soon as former script editor Eric Saward is writing them up at last.
