RKTV and BPTV are definitely different stations; one was based in northern Nigeria and one in central Nigeria, and BPTV didn't even exist when RKTV bought seasons one and two. There's more about them at the BroaDWcast link.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

The episodes are now up on both US and UK iTunes. Links:


US Enemy: https://itunes.apple.com/us/tv-seaso...ld/id704921951
US Web:https://itunes.apple.com/us/tv-seaso...ar/id704945256
UK Enemy: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/tv-seaso...ld/id704921951
UK Web: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/tv-seaso...ar/id704945256

U.S. prices are $1.99 per episode or $9.99 per serial. UK are £1.89 and £9.99 respectively.

Mine are downloading now. Haven't bought from iTunes in so long I had to update my billing info, which felt like torture.

There's a trailer included with Enemy, which confirms that iTunes will be the only download platform for these episodes.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

I wonder what the coming soon trailer will be for on the 10th Planet DVD? Also is the Enemy of the World cover a slip case or can we buy it with the standard silver cover?

Philip Morris' statement reveals they came to Nigeria from Hong Kong, and the BroaDWcast site suggest Hong Kong's prints of those stories would have been fresh from the BBC. So it depends whether Hong Kong or Nigeria would have been censoring stories.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Enemy will be out on DVD next month, confirming another hard-to-believe claim from longtime rumor sources. Web will follow next year; Amazon's listing says February, though that's not confirmed. These are UK dates, presumably, though I doubt the US will be far behind. The artwork for both seems to say 2-disc set, so special features have apparently been prepared, as was also rumored.

There are clips from and trailers for the episodes on YouTube now as well.

And Paul Vanezis has now confirmed that there were no censor cuts, only some missing frames at commercial break points, which have been restored. The episodes are uncut, and were in fact restored by the Restoration Team, which is why they look so good.

Also, they were apparently in "at least one other country" between Hong Kong and Nigeria. And Morris will be telling the story himself "at some point." After Marco Polo is announced, perhaps?

I wonder if they will employ animation for the Web of Fear missing episode? It'd be nice if they did, and would fit the Restoration Team's budget to do so (they'd stated they can only be afforded animation for two episodes per release).

I think if they were going to be animating the missing episode of Web they would have said so. Given the lead times animation requires, it would certainly be underway by now. But you never know.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Has there been an explanation or theory as to why all of Enemy was found but not all of Web?

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Morris' statement just says that Web 3 wasn't with the rest of the film cans that contained the eleven episodes. Vanezis has reiterated that, and denied that the episode "has been found but is damaged, or is being held back, or whatever." I'll leave it to others to parse that, as someone probably should.

Meanwhile, this article comes closest to addressing the remaining rumors:
The elephant in the room was never quite addressed – is this haul the tip of the iceberg and to what extent has there been an element of hostage negotiation in the episodes’ recovery? But there were seemingly loaded statements nonetheless.

A video interview with Philip Morris, the executive director of Television International Enterprise Archive and the man who discovered the episodes revealed yesterday, saw him assert, ‘I have the Doctor Who fans’ best interests at heart, believe me.’

Meanwhile Dan Phelan, Head of Communications at BBC Worldwide, directly addressed the rumours: ‘There has been lots of speculation – some of it better informed than others’. When Phelan presented the episodes to the press, he spoke of them as ‘the missing episodes we’re announcing today’ – a phrase which, it seems to us, can be taken one of two ways.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

The missing episode of The Web of Fear will be represented by audio shown with some of the telesnaps, at least with the iTunes release.

I hope the missing episode will be animated for the DVD release. Might explain why it's not coming out till the end of next February.

The BBC Shop site is currently down... amazing.

Guessing now that The Tenth Planet DVD's rumoured next time trailer will be for the Enemy of the World after all.

Well, given that the Restoration Team has denied rumors of actually being involved with the restoration of the missing episodes, and the confirmation of the exact opposite just now... yeah, we never know.
