Except there is no missing audio. I'm pretty confident the facts are nonsense, but hope there is some basis to it
The soundtrack doesn't have any breaks in the audio? Never listened to any of the cd's myself.
No, David Holman recorded all seven episodes BUT he does have a hole at the start of episode 7 which only lasts 10".

James Russell's recording, which is slightly inferior to David's, fills this gap however.

If Marco Polo is from a fan copy does that undermine the rumours of recovery of other stories from foreign stations ?

It just means the omnirumour 90 was just referring to how many are left to find.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

I don't have my ear to the ground on these rumors, but any more rumblings about Marco Polo or other lost stories? MP was "supposed" to be released by now, right? So, maybe it's bunk?

That's the problem with the BBC not officially confirming or denying more finds. Leaving vague means we only have rumors to go on.

There's no problem. If it's not officially confirmed it's not real. That's how I view these rumours and it works for me.

Although, I think the latest rumour regarding Marco Polo is the restoration work is running behind and we shouldn't expect an announcement until January.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

^ That worked for me up until Enemy and Web were released! The rumors were right and the denials were wrong. It's hard not to take the rumors a bit more seriously. Yet, I don't want to get my hopes up unnecessarily!

Then don't. I view Enemy and Web as nothing more than the rumours finally hitting something after constant shots in the dark. Eventually you'll hit something.

^ Nah, the rumors were more than that. The BBC had been working on them for at least months before we knew about them. It's hard to keep something so large secret for that long.

True, sometimes rumors are true. But usually they aren't. It's best to avoid believing something until there's solid proof. No harm in just accepting that we don't know yet.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

The thing about Marco Polo is that there were solid rumours that something had been found back in October 2012. By July 2013 it had become Web, Enemy and Marco Polo, but with something that meant Web wasn't a definite deal, so whereas Enemy would be on DVD this year, and Marco would be run on BBC4 for the anniversary, they weren't sure what was going to happen to Web.
Well, the Web and Enemy bit of it was all true, assuming that the Web niggle was the absence of episode three. Which just leaves Marco Polo: either that bit was wrong even though the rest was right, or... it's back, but the restoration is running into problems, and nothing will be announced until they have something ready to release. I'm inclined to go for the latter, having dismissed the notion of an October/November release for Enemy of the World back in August/September 'cos I was too sceptical. Might be too optimistic now, but I hope not!

Yea, I'm willing to just be happy with Web and Enemy, and if anything else comes along, that's gravy.

Now, that the Anniversary has come and gone, I would think Doctor Who Focus will be on The Christmas Special and Capaldi as The Newest Doctor. So, even if, they have Marco Polo (or anything else) ready to go, I would expect them to want to save the news for a better "News Cycle" in January or beyond.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

During a panel at the official celebration, Deborah Watling told a funny story about how she was told by someone at the BBC about the recoveries long before it was made public. They told her specifically not to mention it to Frazer Hines because he'd let the secret slip. Of course, the first thing she did was to call Frazer up!

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

And indeed, we are just past Black Friday and CyberMonday in the midst of the Christmas buying season, when BBC DVD have the Season VII and Day of the Doctor releases in the shops for the Christmas market... any release now would be lost in the Christmas buying frenzy.
Why not hold any other recoveries back until, oh, a week into January, when people have their first post-Christmas pay-cheque, and they might just top the iTunes charts while people are shaking off the January blues?
