Two Doctor Who missing episodes found!!!

In case you didn't know, the comnplete third episode of Galaxy Four (Air Lock) and the second episode of The Underwater Menace have been returned to the archives. More details here.

I won't pretend that these particular episodes were the most eagerly-awaited, but any episode recovery is wonderful news, and it's particularly great to get such an early Troughton episode returned. His performance was all in the visual nuances and it's been so frustrating not to see this developing in his earlier episodes.

It'll probably be a while until I see the recovered episodes, but I'll be adding an extra bit on to the end of the relevant blog posts when I do.


  1. Yeah, this is good news. What I'd really like to see is some more of those animated reconstructions (like the one they did for "The Invasion" and also planned for "The Reign of Terror") on the stories with only one or two episodes missing so we can get to see more of the early years in complete form.

  2. Oooh yes,and I'm looking forward to The Reign of Terror- the recon I have is getting on a bit, and it would be great to let some aniomators loose on Eighteenth Century France. The Crusade would be fantastic too.
