Episode 283 – Nothing In the World Can Stop Us Now

ttv_logo_newIn this week’s podcast, we travel back to the Second Doctor era to explore the depths of ocean and the Lost City of Atlantis. We examine the recently released Doctor Who story, The Underwater Menace, with the Doctor and companions Jamie, Ben and Polly. We’ll give our impressions of the DVD treatment as well as it’s reconstruction of the missing first and fourth episodes along with the newly discovered second episode and the, at one time, only surviving episode 3. Wow, was that as confusing as it seemed? Oh, well.

Also, some news of the week, including Doctor Who Magazine’s 500th issue and details coming out in the publication.

And, of course, your feedback.

Enjoy!

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.
