I'm going to ignore all rumours - like I've always done - until I see an official press release from the BBC saying they've found something.
Be that in a day, a week, a month, a year or 20 years away.
There really is no point in getting excited about RUMOURS, cos that's all they are. Wait for FACTS.
(I'm currently going through this thread and a few other forums colating a timeline of events for this rumour(s) so we can all look back and see how amazing it's been (seriously, since the 13th of June - one week ago as I type this - Who fandom has gone batshit crazy). Yes it may not have a happy ending but it's woken a lot of the world up and if anything given a lot of free publicity to the plight of Doctor Who's missing episodes...)
