Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Well, one would assume that the eventual DVD release would see the involvement of the Restoration Team, while a quickie iTunes release would not.

^ That's assuming that timeliness is a concern for the BBC. Evidence would suggest the BBC doesn't care about getting stuff, whether it's information or episodes, out to the fans quickly. They'll pretty much do it on their own schedule without paying attention to fan concerns.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

There's disagreement among different rumor sources about whether the episodes have been restored already, and if they have, by whom.

We're not really at a point yet where people perceive downloads, cloud storage, etc. as a permanent form of ownership, so for many the iTunes versions will be an immediate viewing opportunity rather than a part of the collection. And Doctor Who fans in particular like their extras; that's why the show has more bonus material per episode than virtually any other series, which wouldn't be the case if it weren't demonstrably profitable in the long run.

One version of the rumor is immediate iTunes (or other download service), then a DVD release to follow at some point. Which would certainly make more money than just the DVD.
Yeah, I would be one of those suckers who double dipped.
As would I, especially if it's true that Marco Polo is one of the completed stories.

If Marco Polo were discovered in its entirety, I would probably cry with happiness.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

After the other "news" sites had reported this, all I could think of was Captain Smith at 2am, the Titanic on a harsh lean and all the lifeboats gone, saying “Ok, well I can confirm we have actually hit something…”



Makes me wonder now how The Underwater Menace 2 was leaked so the BBC could track it's downloads and see how much they would get from iPlayer vs DVD.

Of course, once it hits a torrent site...

Also, wikipedia has a page from Ralph Watson (Captain Knight) which says he's still around.
Yes he's occasionally on the convention circuit.

And Twitter for that matter.

What a difference a month makes. Perhaps.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

The prints are most likely "bicycled" prints ex-ABC or NZBC which means they will have been cut to ribbons by the ultra-conservative censors of 1960s Australasia.
Remember that as late as The Sun Makers, the Australian censors cut the line "stuff the Company!" as they wanted to remind children to respect any authority.

Yup, I was trying to maintain my skepticism (and just joking above), but, apparently there really are episodes afterall.

Strangely enough, many of those censored clips were actually preserved, even though the prints were junked. Many of them are on Lost in Time.

Australia and New Zealand are two of the countries the fate of whose prints are mostly known. It's only really the NZ prints from season five which have no fate known (although likely junked in 1974 when Harriett St closed down).

IF it is Web and Enemy then the 1974 Nigeria sale might be the source. If, might, etc.
