The sofa fell through a hole in time. They do that a lot, at least when Douglas Adams was still writing.

Aww. I kinda like "Time-Flight." Anything with the Master in it is at least salvagable. And I like how most of the guest stars are trying to make the most out of trying to understand where they are considering all this space-time stuff is pretty new to them.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

My problem with Timeflight is... well, there's lots, but the big one is...
It 's Concorde! But it might as well be any old plane. The passengers should be a collection of rockstars, movie stars, billionaires and politicians, and at least one of them should be the reason the Master targetted that particular plane.
But no... it's just chance he got a Concorde. And a professor from Darlington University is the most notable person aboard.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Also, why is the Master in that stupid disguise? Storywise and characterwise there's no reason - it's just to give a rubber-ripping cliffhanger. Daft.

And they don't even attempt to explain it, either. Its as if the Master has become a master of disguise for, well, the hell of it.

Furthermore, its a sad excuse of a serial to follow-up directly from Earthshock. I know they didn't do emotion of proper characterization back in the 80's Who, but I would like to think that Time-Flight is not exactly the best seasons finale they could've come up with.

In fact, I don't think I like it almost at all - OK, I like all Heathrow scenes, I guess, and surely the first TARDIS scene, and Tegan's "accidental" exit, but otherwise... a rather boring, nonsensical affair.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Back on the subject of legitimately missing episodes, Ian Levine has been venting about how much the BBC is disappointing him in this anniversary year, and when asked specifically and explicitly about the missing episodes on Twitter he wrote this:

No I did NOT say that at all. I have expected an announcement for weeks, but the interminable interminable endless wait continues.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled criticism of the JNT era.

I just don't know anymore. Up until the comment by David Stead I was in the this-is-all-bollocks camp but David is an honest guy and wouldn't come and say anything unless he believed it. so...

I guess by the end of November we'll know.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

It's been clear for a while now that a long of big-name fans sincerely believe the rumors are true. I just don't know what that's really worth. In 1992, a lot of people sincerely believed that episode 4 of "The Tenth Planet" had been found. A few years back, someone managed to convince Ian Levine they had a copy of "The Wall of Lies."

Stead says he heard about these recoveries from the same source that told him about "Air Lock" and UM2 shortly before they were announced. (Which Paul Vanezis subsequently misled him about, causing a resentment that has colored Stead's response to these rumors and Vanezis' comments on them.) So it's coming from people who have had accurate advance information before. But being right once doesn't make you right all the time, as all the previously accurate spoiler sources who reported that David Tennant had signed up for series five could tell you.

I would love to believe something has been recovered. But the version that virtually everyone is spreading is still 90 episodes, and that's impossible to credit, especially in the absence of any explanation of where they all came from or why the secret plans to release them don't involve anyone who's worked on Doctor Who DVDs before.
