If it is Enemy of the World and Web of Fear, is there anyone left of the major cast besides the companions? Bill Kerr ("Giles Kent") from Enemy is still alive but people like Nick Courtney from Web are dead.
John Levene played a Yeti in Web.

Is it me, or are Doctor Who fans a tad over-reacting?
It's what they do.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Am I the only one who gets a tad embarrassed by Doctor Who Online Fandom? The only place I come to discuss Who is here, because TrekBBS (well, at least this bit of it) is so very civilised. GallifreyBase is completely laughable. I do follow Blogtorwho and DWO on Twitter because they usually know the best gossip first, but the main Doctor Who forums are just horrible.

Doctor Who fans say new old episodes not as good as old old episodes...

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

I've never thought GB is that bad but then I don't tend to go on the new series threads. The classic series/books/dvds/audios/conventions stuff is all pretty reasonable, no worse than here.

I think sometimes all single interest boards can go a bit OTT as the most obsessional fans tend to hang around them more than they will somwhere like here or Digital Spy. I'm a big tennis fan and the two main tennis forums can be just as bad in terms of back biting and abuse as any other fandom at its worst.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

On another forum Steve Roberts of the Restoration Team has suggested that the ongoing deception was about "the knowledge that your mate working in some of the most Godawfully dangerous countries in the world might be just a tiny bit safer." Presumably a reference to TIEA's archive searches in Africa.

Nope. I've always tried to avoid organised fandom for that very reason.

I'm a fan but only if someone organises for me.

Trek fandom seems in my experience to be less like that- maybe because it's traditionally had a wider demographic, or maybe because it's not built on a history of mutually-antagonistic "Local Groups"

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Ian Levine is back on Twitter, telling fandom that "THE FATE OF THE OTHER MISSING EPISODES IS IN YOUR HANDS." Apparently if we don't all buy the new episodes from iTunes on Friday, if we wait for a DVD or pirate them, we'll never get the rest, which some sinister person or entity is hoarding.

What a bonkers week. I'd say what Levine is claiming is ridiculous, but so much that looked ridiculous and had been dismissed by official sources is turning out to be true that I'll just wait and see. That's the problem with this kind of secrecy-- when rumormongers turn out to be right and "responsible" parties clueless or dishonest, any rumor becomes more plausible.

Which might be the stupidest thing I've heard this week. And that says a lot, really.

The problem is, we've got no idea of anything. I think they mean to "surprise" the fans with "sudden" announcement of some episodes found, yet in this day and age, is taht really feasible? No.

I don't know, really. Its all plausible, at this point.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

So basically it's the nightmare scenario. There is a big stash of episodes out there. The person who has them wants the BBC to pay a fortune to hand them over, so the corporation are going to flog the episodes they have got on itunes (or rather through their new BBC Store*) to demonstrate that they can cover the costs of buying more. At which point the person with them will no doubt jack the price up.

Ain't blackmail wonderful.

If there was someone out there with a huge stash, what would stop them cutting out the middle man, as it were, and just making a deal with a DVD production company? Or are the episodes still effectively BBC copyright material (even though the BBC effectively destroyed all copies back in the day).
