It Would Be Nice If, But…

So Bleeding Cool is reporting a rumor, solid, they say, that several missing Doctor Who episodes have been recovered, possibly even the entirety of Hartnell’s run as the First Doctor. To put it mildly, I’ll believe it when I see it.

But I do have some hopes. This is a reputable site, and they are saying the episodes were recovered in Africa. I’ve often figured that if any episodes were found in the future, especially in bulk, it would be in Africa, most likely Nigeria. A lot of episodes were sold down there.

We shall see. I remain skeptical, but also hopeful!

  1. Frivolous Monsters Says:

    Nigeria purchased 24 serials in the seventies. Sadly not the entire William Hartnell run, but then this did include a few Patrick Troughton tales. These encompassed 118 episodes of which, if you count, only 30 are missing from the BBC archives.
