Doctor Who Lost and Found: Two Missing Episodes Recovered!

The Underwater Menace

It is the season of giving and for Doctor Who fans such as ourselves, we have been given a wonderful gift, news of two previously missing episodes which have been recovered! Two classic episodes from the 1960s include one from the William Hartnell era, Episode 3 of Galaxy 4 and from the Patrick Troughton era, Episode 2 of The Underwater Menace were found.

Both were in the collection of one Terry Burnett who had purchased them in the early 1980s and was not aware he had them.

Until now, all four episodes of Galaxy 4 were considered lost. The recovered The Underwater Menace episode originates from Australia's ABC channel which had been censored for broadcast there. The missing bits will be restored to the episode via scans made of them from the National Archives of Australia.

Expect information about a forthcoming DVD release from 2 Entertain sometime in 2012.

There are still missing episodes... Are you a film collector? Please what are you waiting for, check your attic and crawl spaces! What exactly is in that film canister you bought decades ago stored away somewhere? We have to find these lost treasures.

The Dominators DVD Review

So after watching this DVD a couple of times a quick review.  Of course I should be the one to tell you about this release, Patrick Troughton's 2nd Doctor being my favourite Doctor despite being born in the Time of Pertwee.  This Story see's the Doctor land the Tardis on the Planet of Dulkis for a Vacation, on an Island that the Doctor has forgotten to check for Radiation.  Meanwhile the Dominators have landed on the Island and are preparing a site for drilling supported by the Robotic Quarks.

It Was 25 Years Ago Today, The Gallifreyan Embassy Began…

It was a quarter of century ago today, as hard as it is for me believe, is when the Gallifreyan Embassy began. Unbeknownst at the time, it was the day after the Discovery Channel was launched. It was also the day after the launch of the space shuttle Discovery (STS-51-G) which marked the first Arab and Muslim in space (payload specialist Sultan bin Salman bin Adulaziz Al Saud). Yes, it was 1985. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, Commodore launches the Amiga personal computer while NeXT is founded by Steve Jobs after leaving Apple Computer.

Just two weeks before we went Back to the Future in the theaters, the Gallifreyan Embassy of Long Island officially began.
