As long as they can scan the copy frame by frame they can work miracles - remove dirt and marks, fix tears, digitally recreate missing frames etc.

It has been done with movies - if they are that bad, the big question is will the market for them justify the huge cost of frame by frame restoration.
Original Series DVDs sell at most 30,000 copies and there doesn't seem to be much broadcast interest in them these days.

As Allyn said above the Restoration Team went far beyond what would have been required of them for what they were paid and if it is true that they don't exist any more after finishing "The Moonbase" & "The Underwater Menace" other people will just treat it as a job.
If any are really bad they would probably best leaving them until last and using some BBC archive budget to get them done as a side project or hobby project for some of the staff..
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
