Oh, f**k the hell, yes! Not so sure about wanting the second episode of The Underwater Menace, but hey, there's an episode of Galaxy 4, and that's doubtless one fans (including me) have wanted to see. :D :D :D :D

Here's a clip from The Underwater Menace, episode 2...



And the third episode of Galaxy 4, Air Lock...

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

My first thought when I saw this posted on the BBC was to rush over here and tell Q, but yer beat me to it, C.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

It's all good, Bouncy and Dave. I habitually check the Doctor Who News page every day, and I saw the item long before I logged on today. :)

Apparently the second episode of The Underwater Menace isn't complete. They'll need to restore the footage from that found in the Aussie censor clips.

But it's bloody exciting. I can't wait to watch the recovered episodes, especially the one from Galaxy 4. Up until now, all they have from the story is about six minutes from the first episode, Four Hundred Dawns, although that is probably the largest amount of clips from any single missing episode (missing episodes are lucky if they have about a minute of surviving footage). Maybe 10 seconds from an offscreen 8mm recording from the beginning of the episode, and about 6 minutes of footage, some of which was used in the 1977 doco The Lively Arts: Whose Doctor Who.

The censor clips that were originally all that existed from The Underwater Menace, episode 2 is about 20 seconds' worth, mostly from the start when Polly is being prepared for her operation.

Actually, if either of you are interested in the clips available from currently missing episodes, there's a pretty good website here: http://dwclips.steve-p.org/ :)
