Doctor Who: 1960s Nine Missing Episodes Found in Nigeria

BBC had destroyed many original prints of "Doctor Who" in the 1960s and 1970s. But foreign broadcasters have the copies of this sci-fi drama. Now a largest pile of missing episodes is found since destruction. A total of 11 episodes are recovered at a TV station in Nigeria

Television International Enterprises Archive director, Philip Morris, found these episodes. He said, "The tapes had been left gathering dust in a storeroom at a television relay station in Nigeria. I remember wiping the dust off the masking tape on the canisters and my heart missed a beat as I saw the words, Doctor Who. When I read the story code I realised I'd found something pretty special."

Actually a total of 11 episodes have been found. All 6 episodes of the Patrick Troughton's story "The Enemy of the World" (1967-68) are recovered. Episode number 3 was already present in the archive. 

Also 5 episodes of the Doctor battle robot yeti classic "The Web of Fear" (1968) are recovered. This was Troughton's second story for "Doctor Who." Episode number 1,2,4,5,6 are found. Episode number 1 was already present in the archive. Hence 9 out of 11 found were missing.

Actor and writer for the 21st Century incarnation of Doctor Who, Mark Gatiss said, "It's thrilling. Every single avenue seemed to have been exhausted, every now and then something turns up - but to have two virtually complete stories out of the blue is absolutely incredible."
