Sorry, little beind the times on the info, what did happen to the Australian prints? Were they video or film?
Overseas broadcasts prior to the mid-70s were 16mm film. From season 10/11 onwards broadcasters started to request 2" quad tapes.

Power:

Australia - Returned to BBC London in 1975
New Zealand - Sent to Singapore in 1972 (IE there were only two sets of prints sent round the world over three countries)

Evil:

Australia - Returned to BBC London in 1975
New Zealand - Junked by the NZBC prior to 1974

If you want some bedtime reading, you can look here:

Though parts of the bicycle chain is out of date in light of new information, and I hope to update it in the coming months.

I've been hoping for precisely this since the show returned to see the very dynamic that diankra referred to. Even though I knew Tom Baker was going to appear (or rather knew he made the claim), I still hoped The Curator was going to be Ian. Huge miss opportunity, one that doesn't quite work as well with Peter Capaldi.
Agreed. Another huge missed opportunity, up there with the Brig not appearing in DW proper.

Although, William Russell isn't in the best of health. I met him at the 50th celebration and he was very cheerful, but you could tell he wasn't quite all there. I think he's almost 90! So, he may not have been up to appearing.

Mr Awe
He managed An Adventure in Space and Time just fine.
I wonder where he had to go to shoot his scene for An Advtenture . . .? Maybe it was closer to home whereas travelling to Cardiff for Day of the Doctor could've been problematic?

I'm not sure. But, I too was hoping he'd appear in Day of the Doctor! They did put Ian's name on the school sign though! Not the same but a nice touch.

^ Just checked, An Adventure in Space and Time was filmed in London. I'm sure it was much easier for William Russell to get there than Cardiff!

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Do Doctor Who cast members have to jog or walk to Cardiff to be in an episode? I would think a limo or car would be able to take them.

^ He's 89 so a long ride could still be problematic. I don't know that is the issue though, just hypothesizing.

He enjoys travelling.

He keeps himself pretty busy on the signing circuit of late; 5 years ago I made special effort to meet him - one of the last classic companions I hadn't met and I had to - after all my name is Ian!, he's done at least 6 signings this year, another 4 lined up already, including Glasgow, Middlesbrough (the next day!) and Belfast.

When I met him in February he said he was annoyed all he was offered these days is cameos.

You're all absolutely right, it would have been awesome to see. However, hasn't NuWho established that because of their exposure to the Tardis, Ian and Barbara aren't aging? I vaguely remember hearing that somewhere.
Yes, that is mentioned in SJA, which I would be okay with ignoring if it meant a William Russell cameo. But even if you want to acknowledge it, there are ways to work around it, too.
It's actually said in SJA that it's *rumoured* Ian and Babs don't age, not that they definitely don't.

Exactly. I'll take Ian's appearance on "The Crusade" video over Sarah Jane's "rumours."

The Crusade video intro as canonical as any screen appearance to me.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Planet 55 have formally announced they aren't currently working on animating any Who episodes and there are no plans to do any more, cue mass speculation they don't need to animate the rest of The Underwater Menace because Phil Morris has found them but won't be handing them back until Ian Levine explodes like a burst balloon.

So that means The Underwater Menace is the only existing episode of Doctor Who that still hasn't been released.

It's easy - they were spotted whilst travelling with the Doctor in the 21st century.

It's also possible the powers that be simply saw Web of Fear made record sales with a telesnap recon, so why fork out money on an animation? Now we know the two stories aren't in the same league, that 1/6 reconstructed is not the same as 1/2, but if it sold half as well they wouldn't complain.

But ultimatly the best option is for them to wait and see what Phil has.

How exactly would that work anyway? It doesn't seem to have affected Sarah Jane or Jo at all.

Honestly, outside of "The Invasion," I've been pretty unimpressed with the animated episodes so far. On the other hand, the telesnap reconstruction of "The Web of Fear, Part 3" worked so well that I barely noticed that it wasn't an actual episode.

At the very least, he could've appeared at the opening of the story, telling Clara that "her Doctor" called for her and such. Having that young bloke when you could've used one of the original actors from the first-ever story, and in a school setting no less... I just can't fathom it.
Agreed!

I also think they could have worked Romana, Susan, & Leela into the Gallifrey scenes. (Even a much older Commander Maxil, perhaps?)
