TTV Logo 1400In this week’s show we finally get a chance to sit down and examine the, until recently, missing Second Doctor story, The Enemy of the World. We give our impression of this gem which has been unavailable in it’s entirety for more than forty years.

Also, some really good news from Doctor Who actress Janet Fielding who played Tegan Jovanka in the series. Plus other news happening this week in the Doctor Who Universe.

And, of course, your feedback.

A Schedule Update While Waiting For An Update

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.
