Just been announced that the Ice Warriors will also be animated. Yay!

Excellent!
Fingers crossed for animated Dalek Master Plan.
Yes please! I'd much prefer more animated releases of missing stories instead of a special edition of Visitation.

The problem is animation is just so insanely expensive, even the stuff on the cheaper end with minimal actual animation that they're using here. The more episodes that need doing, the lesser the likelihood they would see that money back.

The higher quality stuff that Japanese studios like madhouse or toei put out would cost over £100,000 per episode, which there's not a hope in hell they'd ever recoup from the dvds.

Satisfying my desires as a fan is a higher priority than their profits, but I might not be objective on this.

Except that if they don't make profits, they can't afford to satisfy any of our desires as fans. So they're not separate or contradictory goals. The less profit they make, the less product we get.

People who pirate books, music, and movies obviously don't know that. I hope you're right that nobody here falls into that category.

I'm about 99% certain Davros's comment was a joke.

Don't read too much into what I said. I simply stated that we understand the profit motive.
