Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries
A post from Outpost Skaro (sorry, no link, I got this from Gallifrey Base):
I think it's fair to say that, despite the furore surrounding this Philip Morris statement, that at Outpost Skaro we have never once mentioned his name.
I can categorically tell you that he is NOT the source of the cache I was told about. Well, in as much as I was never told his name. You must also be clear that we never once confirmed the huge 90 episodes, three tonnes of evidence that Ian was talking about. We did presume this must be the same haul we were told about, but we couldn't get a paper trail to correlate both accounts.
As far as I am concerned, as it stands this evening, nothing has changed. My sources (and their are more than one, independent of each other) still tell me that a significant amount of missing stories have been discovered, and that negotiation is underway to a) discover what they are b) find out the condition of them and c) recover them for the the archives/future dvd release.
I must reiterate too that these could very well be Doctor Who - some are labelled that way - but I as yet, despite being told adventures names, can't prove that they are. Again, they might be mislabelled, useless or just plain gone.
So, as Derek said earlier, we're in much the same place as we were at the start of the day.
I personally don't think the BBC will release any information any time soon, so it remains, for me at least, a waiting game.
Take with a hefty helping of salt.
