Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

The unwanted ones sometimez turn out to be great...
After Enemy, I'd be very glad to have Savages back .Could be a really solid story. Similarly, Smugglers could well be very very watchable.

I will sell multiple vital organs in exchange for The Power of the Daleks, and I'd probably give a kidney for Fury from the Deep. The other big one is Marco Polo.

But honestly, I just want more Patrick Troughton in my life.

Power of the Daleks and Marco Polo seem to be the two biggest in my view.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Really? I thought the Dalek Master Plan and Evil of the Daleks would take precendence.

Needless to say, but I think of the two Doctors, the Second's stories are the ones that are most requested. Not without reason, as last year showcased...

Have you seen the 2 1/2 first episodes of Power of The Daleks with the Talking Animated Telesnaps? Many posters here have said it's easy to watch, and many have said this Recon Tech is better than most of the DVD Professional Animation we've gotten.

Yeah, I'd say either of the Daleks, Marco Polo or The Highlanders, just because I want to see Jamie's introduction.

Highlanders for me too, just because I like Jamie so much.

You're right. I was thinking of Dalek's Master Plan, not Power of the Daleks. Although I do think Marco Polo is at the top of the list.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

It definitely varies from fan to fan, but for me it's:

1. Marco Polo
2. Power of the Daleks
3. The Savages (I'm one of the rare few who loves this serial based off fan the reconstructions)
4. The Abominable Snowmen
5. The Faceless Ones
6. The Massacre of St. Bartholomew's Eve
7. The Wheel in Space

But I'll be thrilled with anything. I didn't hold The Enemy of the World in high regard until after the episodes were found. So who knows, maybe even The Macra Terror might turn out to be amazing.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

The people who did see Macra tend to say it had weird worrying direction, much more than usual which doesn't come across in telesnaps. Could be awful, or the best story of the 60s.

WarpedFactor.com has an update of sorts on the omnirumor (it came out May 11th, guess nobody noticed it): http://www.warpedfactor.com/2014/05/...se-doctor.html

To summarize:
- Marco Polo's fully restored and ready to go, pending final negotiations between BBC/TIEA (which even they thought would have been done by now).
- Of the 96 missing episodes found in Africa (yes, 96, The Feast of Steven wasn't sold overseas remember?), two (including The Web of Fear part 3?) - so far - have been confirmed unsalvageable.
- The Power of the Daleks, The Massacre, The Smugglers and The Macra Terror are all restored or soon will be.
- Sounds like the gameplan may now be to release two complete stories a year. The latest conjectural date being tossed around (on Planet Mondas) is June 26th for Marco Polo/Power of the Daleks.
- With 55,000 (AT LEAST) film cans to go through, TIEA will get to the other missing episodes when they get to them.
Given that it is now June 26th, I guess Marco Polo and Power of the Daleks are not being released. And that's despite MP being supposedly restored and ready to go. I'm not surprised, but it would've been nice!

The 50th anniversary brought EVERYONE out of the woodwork to post a rumour. Now that the anniversary is over things are suddenly and surprisingly quiet...

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Although it has a terrible reputation, I'd like to see "The Space Pirates" back just for more Zoe! We also need the rest of "The Wheel in Space."
