Honestly, even if an official announcement that all (or any) of these 90 episodes were found were made today, the soonest you should expect any potential DVD release would be 2014. In my uninformed opinion, or course.
They may have been quietly progressing a group of episodes or serials through the "Preparing for Release" process for the last year already
Even if we assume for a moment this is the case and the plan is to release all the completed stories that these 90 episodes now make on DVD in November, that will ultimately prove a bad idea for the BBC. Not everyone has the money to shell out for that many new DVDs at one time. The smartest thing would be to hold off any DVD releases until 2014 anyway, and release one or two of them a month, just like they have been doing with the classic era stories all along. After all, with all the available complete stories nearly entirely released, this will be the perfect way to have the line last longer without resorting to more double-dip special editions.
Oh, absolutely, I didn't even expect it would be as many as 1 every month. I was actually aiming more at they might surprise us with a Special airing on BBC of 1 serial for the Anniversary Weekend (Maybe one near the front of the line for DVD release, that's cleaned up, but, not yet set to burn with the extras and so forth)

I guess I got distracted and didn't take my post that far

Gallifrey Base is parsing this for wiggle-room, but it seems pretty definitive to me.

Alas.

Yeah, that seems pretty definitive. Oh, well. It's my own fault for giving my hopes up for this to be true.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

So, for Doctor Who's 50th anniversary, what we have is half a normal season, Matt Smith leaving, a 60-minute long special and our hopes of ever seeing lost episodes brutally crushed by the steel boots of harsh reality? Happy anniversary, everyone!

Plus a huge number of special audios, the DVD range completed (with all Pertwee stories in color), a classic story in HD, e-books with all the Doctors, and a 90-minute serial about the very beginnings of the show. That's a pretty nice celebration.

To elaborate further, Big Finish and AudioGo is in the process of releasing an 11-part series called Destiny of the Doctor which features one story of each Doctor as told through two actors, usually one companion and a guest star.

Additionally, and this is what I'm most excited about for the entire anniversary, Big Finish will be releasing The Light at the End, which features Tom Baker through Paul McGann with one companion each with additional companion cameos, all facing off against Geoffrey Beevers as The Master.

Edit: Also, we have animated episodes of The Reign of Terror (already released), The Ice Warriors, The Tenth Planet, and The Moonbase. That's pretty damn significant in itself.

That's like telling a kid that he won't have a gift for Christmas, but that you'll be giving the walls of his room a fresh coat of paint instead. It's hardly exciting.

I don't buy audios or e-books, or HD anything, so the only thing in your list that is of any interest to me is the drama about the beginnings of the show.

There has been so much confusion, misdirection and rumour about all of this I refuse to believe or disbelieve anything. I can hope, but I'll just wait and see...

I'm sorry you're not interested in the extras and the celebratory stuff that's coming out, but it is exciting to many of us. If you haven't heard any audios, you might give the 50th anniversary audio release a chance.

And even without that, as Emh just pointed out, we're getting The Tenth Planet, The Ice Warriors, and The Moonbase released with animated episodes, we got The Reign of Terror earlier this year, and all the Pertwee episodes have been restored to color.

Have to agree. The BBC aren't even making the audios so they get no credit for that. The DVD line being complete around now has nothing to do with the anniversary, nor do the animations.

But, I'll enjoy what we do get. The special should be great and I'm really interested about the beginnings special.

Ian Levine's response to the Morris statement:
Deeply sick, distressed, disheartend, all hopes dashed, all joy gone from the world. That's it. DO NOT ASK ME TO SAY ANOTHER WORD
The fact that he's flipped on this rumor twice in the course of the week, and been so over-the-top vehement in holding each position, is pretty much the best case study in The Problem of Ian Levine that you could ask for.
