But why keep it secret? Why not build up the hype about an upcoming realease? or at least tell the public they retrieved the episodes but needed to see if they can be restored? It would build momentum. This cloak and dagger shit will cause bad PR. Jeesh, I thought the BBC was bad about announcing the premier dates of new episodes, are they run by M6? LOL
The only reason I can see is there is still an issue with 'negotiations'.
Or someone who didn't realise this would get "out of hand" slapped an embargo on it, and that still stands.
