Nigerian Banking Pays Off

1393494_734413269906036_972173773_nThe BBC announced today that 2 “Missing” Doctor Who adventures have been found!

That’s right after much speculation of episodes being found it was announced that 9 episodes of Patrick Troughton’s Era have been recovered:

Film recordings of eleven episodes of Doctor Who – nine of which were considered ‘lost’ – have been discovered in Nigeria.

All six episodes of The Enemy of the World and five of The Web of Fear were found by Phillip Morris, director of Television International Enterprises Archive, in a television relay station in Jos, central Nigeria.

Morris tracked records of shipments made by the BBC to Africa, that contained tapes for transmission. BBC Worldwide is currently re-mastering these episodes to restore them to the fantastic quality that audiences expect from Doctor Who.

You can now purchase them on iTunes right now.

They will also be released on DVD, but no word on a US release date for either.

Below are two trailers for the stories and for MUCH more information visit www.doctorwho.tv

    So the next obvious question is when are these stories going to be on Friday Night Who? 🙂

    • I’d love to get one of them on for the Countdown, but both being 6 parters would mean two nights. We do that we miss the anniversary. But I’ll see what I can do. Otherwise… SOON.
