Doctor Who Lost and Found: Two Missing Episodes Recovered!

The Underwater Menace

It is the season of giving and for Doctor Who fans such as ourselves, we have been given a wonderful gift, news of two previously missing episodes which have been recovered! Two classic episodes from the 1960s include one from the William Hartnell era, Episode 3 of Galaxy 4 and from the Patrick Troughton era, Episode 2 of The Underwater Menace were found.

Both were in the collection of one Terry Burnett who had purchased them in the early 1980s and was not aware he had them.

Until now, all four episodes of Galaxy 4 were considered lost. The recovered The Underwater Menace episode originates from Australia's ABC channel which had been censored for broadcast there. The missing bits will be restored to the episode via scans made of them from the National Archives of Australia.

Expect information about a forthcoming DVD release from 2 Entertain sometime in 2012.

There are still missing episodes... Are you a film collector? Please what are you waiting for, check your attic and crawl spaces! What exactly is in that film canister you bought decades ago stored away somewhere? We have to find these lost treasures.

Happy Birthday, Waris Hussein

Waris Hussein, the first director of Doctor Who (he had directed An Unearthly Child back in 1963) turned 73 today. Though you would never guess it if you spent some time with him as he comes across as someone much younger. We had the honour and privilege of spending a little time with him in Los Angeles last February when we introduced him as our special surprise guest in our Doctor Who: Podshock live show on stage at Gallifrey One. He is charming and intelligent.

A couple weeks ago for the 48th anniversary of Doctor Who I once again watched An Unearthly Child (Part One) as I do traditionally on the anniversary. Despite its age, it never gets old.

Happy Birthday, Waris!

Matt Smith on the Christmas Special [VIDEO]

If the Prequel (see previous story) doesn't get your juices running for the Christmas special perhaps this interview with Matt will. Though if the Prequel doesn't start getting you excited I quote the 11th Doctor at this point "What's wrong with you?"
