Out of interest, where did they place the commercials? Just between episodes, or within episodes? And if the later, how many ad breaks? You see, the early Hartnell episodes were deliberately made with a fade to black 10 to 15 minutes in, so that foreign stations had an ad break ready fitted if they needed one (and a reel swap break if the episodes were supplied on two reels of film).
