A few posts back we looked at missing episode reconstructions and the use of 'telesnaps', together with surviving audio soundtracks, to rebuild lost episodes.

Audio soundtracks exist for all the missing stories, which have now also all been released on CD with supporting narration.

Telesnaps exist for the majority, but not all, missing episodes. No original telesnaps are known to exist for the first Doctor stories The Reign of Terror, Galaxy 4, The Myth Makers, Dalek Masterplan, The Massacre, or for the later second Doctor stories The Invasion and the The Space Pirates.

Some stories are incomplete - no telesnaps are known to exist for the fourth episode of Marco Polo, The Wall of Lies, although records indicate that they were taken. Telesnaps aren’t known to exist for the fourth episode of The Enemy of the World.

Many telesnaps were published in Doctor Who Magazine (DWM), and their Classic Comics (DWCC) spin off magazine, and also appear on the Beeb's classic series website in the photonovel format (here).
