And Moffat's man-crush on the Troughton era continues unabated.
Lest you think I'm mocking, I'm genuinely not. It's a pretty cool thing.
Though I will say that between this revelation (which Tom Spilsbury confirmed on Twitter in a series of now-deleted Tweets) and Moffat's paeon to "Evil of the Daleks" on the Advent Calendar, I'm starting to get suspicious that there may be a missing episode announcement in the near future.
I'd say it has more to do with the Radio Times's launching of a new search campaign for lost episodes.
With a list here:
They should really add the following to that list if we want a perfect list:
The Daleks 7 (only existing copy is an inferior Suppressed Field copy)
The Edge of Destruction (only existing copy is an inferior Suppressed Field copy)
The Reign of Terror 1 & 2 (existing copies are an inferior Suppressed Field copy)
The Crusade 1 (only existing copy is an inferior Suppressed Field copy)
The Time Meddler 4 (footage missing, edited by censors, then again all 4 episodes aren't in a very good condition)
Galaxy 4 ep 3 (last 27 seconds missing, though this has been recreated)
The War Machines 3 & 4 (footage missing, edited by censors)
The Faceless Ones 3 (20 seconds missing through being a damaged print, though this has been recreated)
