Lost Episodes Of “Doctor Who” Discovered?

October 9, 2013

BBC is expected to announce this week that several early episodes of DOCTOR WHO, thought to have been lost, will be returned to the pubcaster.

Over 100 episodes from the 60s and 70s starring William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton are missing and BBC unfortunately destroyed the original transmission tapes. However, prints that were made for foreign broadcasters pop up sometimes, including four installments of “The Tomb of the Cybermen” starring Patrick Troughton. Those episodes were found in Japan in 1981.

Doctor Who is currently celebrating it’s 50th anniversary.
