Lost Doctor Who Episodes Discovered


The Second Doctor battling Yeti’s in The Web of Fear

Nine previously missing episodes of Doctor Who from the 1960’s have been discovered at a TV station in Nigeria. The episodes all come from Patrick Troughton’s second Doctor era, specifically the stories The Web of Fear and The Enemy of the World. The episodes were lost when the BBC destroyed many of the tapes in the 1960’s and 70’s following their original transmission, fortunately many episodes were copied to film and sold to foreign broadcasters as was the case here.

Restored versions of the episodes are now available to buy on iTunes. You can find trailers for both serials below.
