. (The recent conversation, not the original tweet.) Or, if you don't feel like clicking: fans convince themselves via Google searches that Sierra Leone's archive, which once held some missing Hartnell episodes from season three, was not destroyed despite archive researchers reporting it was; archive researcher is snidely dismissive; fans get hurt feelings, look for loopholes. Another day in crazy rumor land...
The one thing that puzzles me about Sierra Leone is the absolute certainty by Vanezis about what was held in the television station there as late as 1999. Is the paperwork that incontrovertible? Is there physical evidence that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that there were Hartnells there to be recovered thirty-five years after they aired?
Perhaps someday we'll know what happened in Sierra Leone.
