Sorry, no.

spectator sport
noun
any sport that can be watched by spectators, as football or basketball, usually for a fee.
...
spectator sport

— n
a sport that attracts more people as spectators than as participants
It's not subjectively defined by whether you, the speaker, are a spectator or a participant. It's objectively defined by the context in which the sport is performed.

The sport is watching missing episodes get returned.

For me, the sport is watching people argue about whether or not there are episodes to be returned -- people with nebulous sources who say yes, people who connections who say no (but then turn out to be lying), people who like parsing what the people with connections say, people who just want to stir things up. That's a spectator sport all of its own.

And then you throw Ian Levine into the mix.

True, that!

The current rumor, by the way, is that there will be a massive 40-episode announcement around Easter, almost all Hartnell, with another Troughton announcement to cover the balance at the end of the year.

Watching Ian Levine is a sport all it's own, LOL.

Easter, WTF!!! Marco Polo's Anniversary is February 22, why are they waiting so long (Though, last ep was April 4)

I don't know how people spreading those rumours can be believed; if you are deep enough down the rabbit hole to know how many episodes are coming then it stands to reason you'd know which ones they are!

I would love more to come and don't mind the waiting (if it's all true) but any rumours beforehand I just ignore.

The ONLY rumour I've taken notice of retrospectively is the MEW rumour, mainly because parts of it wee on the money but also two thirds of it has been proven correct! Still, we wait and we wonder.

At two days into the Winter Olympics, I'm praying for an announcement as I need something worth watching!

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

I see Ian Levine has broken the news of director Christopher Barry's death in the most spectacularly insensitive way possible, relating to Morris and supposed missing episode finds... "another person who'll never see what Phil Morris is holding back." What a fucking douchebag.

He deleted the Tweet later, of course...

Ya, know, I can only hope Ian Levine has a drinking problem or a drug problem. I can't imagine some of the stuff that flies off his fingers isn't stopped by his decorum meter if he's not tanked up on something

No, that's Ian Levene for you and now you can undersatand why RTD told him to "Fuck off." at a press conference.

Some people never develop a decorum meter. Levine seems to be one of those people.

Would that be when Levine had a secret memorandum to the effect that RTD, Gardner, and Tennant were all quitting at the same time with the intention of forcing the BBC to cancel the program? Which was later followed by Levine gloating that he had singlehandedly saved the program because he had embarrassed the BBC into not cancelling it?
