While there are no new details in this report, what is very important is that the reputable BBC News entertainment correspondent, Lizo Mzimba, is confirming (or, double-confirming, I suppose) that more than one episode of “lost” DOCTOR WHO has been recovered and returned to the BBC.
Here’s what was posted on the BBC website:
“A number of early episodes of Doctor Who, which were believed to have been permanently lost, have been returned to the BBC.
BBC Worldwide is expected to confirm the find at a press conference in London later this week. It follows weeks of speculation that some lost episodes had been located.
Details of how fans will be able to watch the recovered episodes are also expected to be revealed later this week.”
While we all hope that the cache turns out to be the best-case scenario — some 93 episodes, as once rumored — I’m sure fans will welcome any number of recovered episodes. But I won’t be able to help feeling a bit disappointed if the total isn’t somewhere around, say, 40 episodes.
What do you think? Will you be satisfied with two recovered episodes? 10? Or nothing short of all 106 missing installments?
