More on Missing Episodes
I love reading all the stories about the missing episodes, tales a surviving episodes stolen from Blue Peter or stored by selfish film collectors (or even despot dictators). Can we hope that more episodes are found? Of course we can.
Anyway, the best introduction to the whole missing episode history is probably wikipeadia, which also links to some good websites.
If you want a more indepth look, try the Doctor Who Gateway site here. It's an old website, and many of the links are to sites which unfortuantely are no longer available (just shows you can't count on sites being around for ever).
Some useful links still active include research on the BBC Who Archive, here, which reprints online text from three articles from Doctor Who Monthly magazine.
Another good site is the Doctor Who Clips Page (here) which lists all the surviving clips from episodes which are missing.
This article is probably the best analysis (or myth-buster) on the whole 'suriving' missing episodes.
More to the point, what's it all about? Me? Well no, not really. (OK, just a bit) But Who. Who? Doctor Who. What? No, not Doctor What, although he's here somewhere as well (or will be). Doctor Who, the typically British and uniquely odd BBC TV time-travelling series, which started way back in 1963 and is still going strong today. Blending the old and the new, aiming to bring you all the stuff you didn't know and even the stuff you didn't know you needed to know... and more! And me? A mad manic megalomaniac... with a dash of delusional paranoia, the ups and downs of a flip-flop, oh, and a constant headache...
