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.

Matt Smith Makes an Apperance at SDCC Prior to the Doctor Who Panel

Matt Smith appeared on a TV Guide Fan Favorite panel at San Diego Comic Con currently underway in Califronia, USA. On the panel, he mentioned in reference to the episode, A Good Man Goes to War that he thought the Doctor would had caught on sooner who River Song really was and he also mentioned that is all-time favorite Doctor is Patrick Troughton, the 2nd Doctor.

'Doctor Who': Matt Smith tells Comic-Con about 'Let's Kill Hitler' and River Song payoff - From Inside the Box - Zap2it: "The real "Doctor Who" fun doesn't start at Comic-Con until Sunday (July 24), when stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan join writer (and "Being Human" creator) Toby Whithouse and executive producers Piers Wenger and Beth Willis for a panel in Hall H.

But that didn't stop Smith from making an early appearance at the TV Guide Fan Favorite panel, where he slipped a few teases about the upcoming second half of Season 6 and indulged in a little time travel fantasizing.

When asked about his favorite episode in his two-year tenure as the Doctor, he confessed that it's still to come. "The next episode... 'Let's Kill Hitler,'" says Smith. "[Creator] Steven [Moffat] is in fine form, and there's a great monster, which is important.""

New Year - New Video: The Wheel... In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream

Every year, for the last few years, just in time for the holidays, 'TardisTimegirl' releases an animated Doctor Who related video on YouTube. A holiday treat for all Whovians. Last year, it was the immensely popular, '2001: A Who Odyssey' in which she combines the classic 1968 Doctor Who serial 'The Wheel in Space' with the film '2001: A Space Odyssey' which was released the same year. So when the holidays rolled around this year, I checked her YouTube channel and was disappointed not to see any new animated shorts for this year's holiday season. So I was surprised and delighted to see that a new short was released over the New Year's Day holiday.

Once again, using the 2nd Doctor story, 'The Wheel in Space' as the backdrop, she poses the question of what would a trailer look like for it if the once BBC set designer, Ridley Scott (who later went on to direct Alien among other films) made it? What follows is another awesome computer animated (CGI) trailer for Doctor Who: The Wheel in Space done in the style of 1979's Alien film by Ridley Scott. Thank you, 'TardisTimegirl.'

Turn off the lights and watch this in full screen mode. Enjoy!

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.
