Debbie Watling and Frazer Hines involved in the reveal - adds weight to the Enemy/Web rumour.

Be good to see how they did the split screen in Enemy.

They mostly didn't. The two only meet in one scene and most of the two-shots were damaged in the camera, to the director's disappointment. He had to do the scene mainly through intercutting.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

I wouldn't mind seeing Snowmen turn up, just to have a Yeti double. It's sad that Bill Hartnell and Pat Troughton aren't around to celebrate.

Yes, but it's not like that would have been very likely anyway. Were Hartnell still alive he would have been 105, which although not impossible is very unlikely all the same.

Although, Troughton would have been 93, which is within the realm of reasonable possibility.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

If it is Enemy of the World, it's sad that it's a few years too late for Barry Letts to see it again.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

I'm happy to see anything come back. I didn't start watching Doctor Who until it was on PBS stations, 'round about 1979, when I was 15, so, I started with Tom Baker. So, I have no childhood memories of the Troughton or Hartnell, so, every newly found episode is new to me (And actually, I've only, at the beginning of this year, seen the whole Troughton run, including the Recons. Previously, I'd only seen Tomb and War Games, I think.)

Enemy of the World is definitely one of the Recons I am excited to see the recovered episodes for.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

^ That's pretty much my story as well and I started watching the same year on PBS! However, I was lucky that my PBS station did get the Hartnell and Troughton packages.

I'll be super happy with any returned episodes! So glad that there are any still being found after all of these years!

Oh, yea, they did air Hartnell and Troughton once all the rest were all shown, but, there weren't a whole lot of them, and I apparently missed most of what Troughton there was (In fact, I thought War Games was two seperate Serials, when I initially saw it, because I missed a couple parts, and the beginning is so different from the end of the Serial).

Some of the Brits on the board, though, seem to have seen them all as a child when they were first broadcast.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

If The Myth Makers is indeed returned, will the DVD have an extra about the real Greek myths, i wonder?

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Ohhh, Anneke Wills has tweeted she's attending a "Secret" screening in London tomorrow. Assuming it's not a completely unrelated event (about the only thing it could be is a press screening for the Hartnell docu-drama surely?) that seems to be firm confirmation some Ben and Polly is back in the archive as well. With the Monbase DVD delayed I'd say the odds are pretty good on that (or maybe whatever odd episodes from other stories that have been found will be packaged with it?).

Shame Peter Purves doesn't know anything about any recoveries, looks like Stephen has lucked out.

I haven't heard anything to suggest that The Myth Makers is one of the "returned" stories, sadly.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Could someone explain why Rich Johnston now thinks it's not true:

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/10/...announced-yet/

But they’re wrong. BBC News is not the BBC. Oh sure, it’s part of it, but when it reports a news story about the BBC, it is not the PR wing of the broadcaster. It’s often critical, occasionally misinformed and generally the same as all the other media.
In this piece, though not naming the sources, it is simply repeating the stories broken by the Radio Times and The Mirror earlier in the week.
You started the feckin rumour avalanche in the first place, Rich!!
