I am convinced I wrote about this several months ago, but for the life of me, I cannot find the post! So while I wonder if I’m slipping slowly into insanity, enjoy this article from Mirror that talks about the wonderful recover of over 100 Doctor Who episodes that were believed to be lost forever.
Long story short, approximately 106 Doctor Who episodes from the 1960’s that everyone believed were permanently lost have been uncovered at the Ethiopian Radio and Television Agency; they were presumably sent there for transmission back in the 60’s. When the BBC wiped their main archives and erased most of the old black-and-white episodes, no one believed all of them would ever be recovered. But now it seems we may have all of them again.
Granted, the BBC has not come out to either confirm or deny the rumor, and some people have claimed that Mirror has a history of inventing stories. But this rumor has been circulating for several months, and not once has an official word come out to squash the rumor once and for all. So we’ll just have to wait and see.
