If recordings of the first two seasons have been found, this would be 11 episodes recovered, all of Marco Polo, and the missing episodes of the Reign of Terror and the Crusade. It would be 10 % of the total and a quarter of the missing Hartnell. It would mean issue of three new serials.

Although I note that they have not confirmed which episodes, or how many have been found, I doubt it is all of the 106, but it would be nice to have some new stories.

Oh spellcheck changed enemy to enema, a much more terrifying title.

Nearly as bad as 'Furry From The Deep'

Since the discovery of the misplaced episodes was announced, I've seen a few articles criticising the decision to delete the episodes back in the 60s. In the Guardian they described it as a "philistine archive purge" which is a little harsh in my opinion.

In all fairness, if you used a time machine (for argument's sake, let's assume it's a medium-sized blue box, although other methods of time travel are available) to travel back to the 60s and told a BBC engineer "In 50 years time people will still be watching this low budget sci-fi programme. Yes, the one with wobbly sets, rubbery monsters and occasionally dodgy acting. In fact it will be one of the most popular shows on the BBC and tens of millions of people around the world will watch each new episode. The 50th anniversary episode will be broadcast in 70 countries simultaneously and in cinemas across the UK. Not only that, people will be so eager to re-watch old episodes that there will be entire TV channels dedicated to showing classic TV series. Also, almost every home in the country will have technology which will allow them to instantly access virtually any film or TV programme ever made. If you erase these tapes, future generations will be very annoyed".

I'm fairly certain the BBC engineer would laugh at you and then press delete.

I think we should bear in mind that 20-20 hindsight is a wonderful thing.

You would simply steal or duplicate them.

Or kill the grandfather of the engineer, who would still exist, as he was obviously a b@stard from a long line of such, hence the laugh and his grandfather was not in fact his biological grandfather. This is the fatal flaw in the grandfather paradox, grandma was a slut.

I was Planning Solicitor for Harlow Council for over 5 years during which time I was responsible for the development of New Hall Farm including the Stirling nominated New Hall Be development, the redevelopment of one third of the City Centre and the construction of the Harlow Foyer project. To make that joke, I take extremely personally. Angry

No it hasn't. The roundabouts still have inadequate signage and it's impossible to escape. Smiley

Not that I wish to threadjack the debate about the delights or otherwise of Harlow. But in slightly more on topic news, it does sound like Mr Eccleston has indeed officially declined to appear in the 50th. Much as I understand he seems to have a firm policy on returning to roles, I'll admit I'm extremely surprised. One would have thought the actor largely responsible for making the reboot such an initial success, might have found it in himself to compromise for such a land mark occasion.

It all sounds perfectly amiable and we must respect his artistic choices I guess, but still this will be considered a bit of a blow by many I would think.

So, it looks like the Doctor can have more than 12 regenerations....

Hmmm interesting.... one of the commenters there briefly described my theory of where John Hurt's Doctor fits in. It was pretty similar. Well, time will tell... Wink

However, while people are claiming that John Hurt is wearing the same jacket as Christopher Eccleston, it isn't. It is however more similar to the one Paul McGann wears in his updated publicity photos...  :

Plus, there is the fact that William Hartnell was the first Doctor, and hence did not regenerate, therefore, according to my, and I admit it, poor maths skills, that means there have only been 10 regenerations, and not the 11 everyone thinks?

Looking at those piccys, John Hurt has what looks like an original style sonic sticking out with a mysterious red bit on the end.

Looks like I'm going to have to glue a marker pen top on the end of my spare one...

Well, not so much a trailer as a teaser/tribute.

Still pretty excellent though.
