If I was gonna give up surviving episodes in exchange for lost ones, I'd give up the 4 of Reign of Terror and The Gunfighters 4 episodes
But Reign isnt existing, its Recovered! I remember when it was missing and how I schemed to get copies when those 4 eps turned up!
Oh, I don't discriminate. If it exists, I call it surviving, wether it survived the purge or turned up after the purge (I don't have brain space to keep track of the details other than what's still missing, LOL). I should have said "existing", I forgot the level of knowledge I am dealing with her

^By coincidence, I just read a review of "The Web Planet" that ended with a lament that it still exists while stories like "Fury From the Deep" and "Marco Polo" don't.

Love most Hartnell but The Web Planet is really boring and a tough watch. Marco Polo recon was gripping though, no doubt it'd be a Top 10 classic if it were still around.

Ahem, you mean you remain the OTHER fan of The Web Planet.

Re: Rumors of a Special Surprise for the Anniversary

I guess for me, the only thing that will surprise me is seeing Christopher Eccleston on the screen as the 9th Doctor. Anything else I can take or leave, considering the only Doctor Who I watched is the new one.

The irritating thing is that Reign of Terror 3 & 6 are among the dozen or so episodes (taking 1980 as Year Zero, and restricting it to Hartnell and Troughton, as a lot of Pertwees that existed in B&W then turned up in colour) that have been double-recovered. The Web Planet makes another six of them (but the existing copies of 1 & 6 were edited, so we at least got something back when the dupes turned up)...

I'm rather fond of it myself. I can only wonder what the recons for Gunfighters would have been like!

I have been aware of this rumour for a year or so. Evil wasn't part of the haul when I heard it, but I suppose that could have changed. Time will tell if there's any truth to any of it.

Good to see there are a few fans of The Web Planet still kicking around.

Re: Rumors of a Special Surprise for the Anniversary

There are three views on The Web Planet:
1) "It's brilliant!" This was usually said by people who were eight in 1965, and they kept saying it until the 1980s, when they got to see it again.
2) "It's awful." This was said by people who'd grown up taking the word of group one, and then saw it for themselves in the 1980s.
3) "It doesn't work, but it was worth trying" This is now said by sensible people, including those from group one, group two, and group born later. (Some people also add "And it might just have worked if it had had a different director. Like Douggie Camfield. Or Derek Martinus. Or...")

Cool if true. However, I think it's more likely that they'll announce that they'll be animating all of the missing stories in question.

Re: Rumors of a Special Surprise for the Anniversary

Another round of the lets try not to get our hopes up but wouldn't it be fantastic if this was true!

I suppose the interesting thing is they are mainly talking about Hartnell's when most of us would like to see more Troughton's as he has less in the archives and hoaxes have tended to focus on the most sort after stories. Though this does mention Evil I suppose though these days Power tends to be the one most mentioned when people talk about what they want back and rightly so as going by the audio it is by far the better story.

Personally I like The Web Planet - any story that has Barbara being a war leader for a group of giant butterflies must have something going for it! And yes The Gunfighters is indeed fantastic.

4) The Web Planet is "Doctor Who does Lord of the Rings with cardboard insects", and there's nothing about that sentence that is not awesome.

I thought the big surprise was supposed to be a series of Paul McGann minisodes or whatnot. What happened with that rumor?

I've watched a recon of Evil of the Daleks three times. It's so fucking good I'd cry tears of joy if it were discovered, so I'm not gonna get too excited or I'll be upset when it turns out to be another duff rumour.

The fact that Dalek story is missing while Journey's End still exists is incredibly depressing. Probably one of the key reasons which led to me being a nihilistic atheist.
Nothing would please me more than having all 7 episodes of this particular Troughton serial returned in one piece in place of that wretched series finale.
Evil would be nice, but Power of the Daleks would be even better.
