Ah, good old Power of the Daleks. One of the five stories that are least likely to be found, given the number of overseas sales, and the number of prints confirmed as destroyed.
What are the other 4? I would guess that "Mission to the Unknown" & "The Daleks' Master Plan" would be among them. What else?

Personally I intend to create a time machine, then go back in time and record all the missing episodes when they were first transmitted along with the three missing Dads Army episodes.

Tenth Planet and Evil of the Daleks.
Terry Nation's attempts to sell his Dalek tv series meant sales of Power and Evil were restricted at the time (Evil wasn't sold overseas till a year later, as an optional addon at the end of season five) and with Power unavailable and Smugglers already sold as part of season three Tenth Planet got skipped as well.
In many countries season 4 began with Highlanders and the new Doctir inexplicably in place.

The only problem with this comparison is that Fizzbin makes sense -- you can actually play it despite Shatner ad-libbing the rules.

And if there were missing Trek episodes, which hasn't been true since we got all of "The Cage", the fandom wouldn't be any less idiotic about it.

Lines up A Piece of The Action on the DVD player, so, I can be sure to get all the rules down, so, I know what to expect, on the off chance there is no missing Episode announcement tomorrow (It's already tomorrow in Britain for us across the pond, isn't it?)

We're fast running out of Tuesdays in September, if it isn't today it'll have to be next Tuesday.

The whole Tuesday thing started as a joke on another Forum and was then taken in as "fact" by the True Believers.

Makes a change from the Circle Of Levine method, I suppose.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

So, don't keep us in suspense, what episodes were announced as being found?

Three Golden Shots* and the long-suppressed "Chuckle Brothers On Meth Xmas Special".



*All Charlie Williams, no Monkhouse's, unfortunately.

Ooh, the Charlie Williams ones would be far more worth seeing. Supposed to be real car crash television, down there with I Love My Country! :-)
