BBC News has given a degree of credibility to reports and rumors that have circulated over the last few days concerning the find of a ‘number’ of missing Doctor Who episodes from the 60s.
BBC News reports:
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 screening in London later this week.
It follows weeks of speculation that some lost episodes had been located.
A total of 106 episodes featuring the first two actors to play the Doctor, William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton, are currently missing.
Details of how fans will be able to watch the recovered episodes are also expected to be revealed later this week.
More information as it becomes official – I will only report on the official BBC statements on the issue as the rumors are far too unreliable and hope-raising. Follow @quantumlockeddw for more rolling news on the issue.
