Missing Doctor Who Episodes Found

Some news has come out that should prove very exciting to the Who-loving masses, as the BBC have confirmed that some long-missing episodes of Doctor Who have been found.

Reports circulated earlier this week that the episodes starring William Hartnell – the first Doctor – and Patrick Troughton had been rediscovered, and the broadcasting giant have now confirmed the reports.

A total of 106 episodes featuring Hartnell and Troughton are missing, following the destruction of many of the Beeb’s original transmission tapes from the 60s and 70s. Many previously-missing episodes have been retrieved thanks to foreign broadcasters, who still retained film transfers of the original broadcasts.

The BBC have yet to confirm any further details of the latest batch of found episodes.
