Great. We've got, instead of Doctor Who, Doctor Swears-a-Lot. :lol:

That's great news. I think Capaldi will be a fantastic Dr, he's a top shelf actor. I'm really looking forward to the next series now.

Steven Moffat: "We are aware that Peter Capaldi's played a part in Doctor Who before and we’re not going to ignore the fact."

http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2013-09- ... ppearances



The BBC has announced that on Nov. 23 it will simulcast the beloved science fiction show’s special 50th anniversary episode, “The Day of the Doctor,” in at least 75 countries, including the U.S., where it will be shown on BBC America. Meanwhile, details of 3-D screenings in select cinemas here will be announced in the coming weeks.

“The Doctor has always been a time traveler — now he’s traveling time zones,” Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat said in a statement. “On the 23rd of November, it won’t be the bad guys conquering the Earth — everywhere it will be ‘The Day of the Doctor!’”
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

The Radio Times and a number of other news sources are reporting that the rumors that a number of missing classic episodes have been found are true. :) No official announcement from the BBC yet.

At least two Troughton era stories, by the looks of it. I'm not holding my breath just yet, but I'm definitely keeping my fingers crossed.

This rumour's been percolating for quite a while now. It's recently experienced a revival on the one Doctor Who BBS I frequent, and apparently, on a number of other forums, particularly those for missing TV episodes, there's been a recently-imposed ban on discussing the matter. Now, it could be that they're trying to tamp down on any potential flame wars, but more than one person is suspicious.

Me? Well, it will be great if they do find episodes, and some of the actions of those involved are suspicious, but to tell the truth, there is still the very great, if disheartening, possibility that the rumours are BS. Certainly, there's very little chance that the mythical 106 episodes were found in Ethiopia, as only 11 of the currently missing episodes were sold there (and one missing episode, The Feast of Steven, was never telerecorded, so in all likelihood, it was destroyed when its videotape was wiped). And I doubt that that many could have been found all at once. However, if they found one or two like they did a couple of years back (which were Air Lock, the third part of Galaxy 4, and The Underwater Menace episode 2), then I'll be happy enough. If they find a few complete serials, unlikely as that is, I'll be even happier.

If you're interested, Jack, there's an excellent book called Wiped! by Richard Molesworth, who is one of the Restoration Team. It's rather dry in style, but it's very informative about not only how so many episodes of Doctor Who came to be missing, but also how they were recovered. You'd be surprised at how many Pertwee stories were missing, for example.

I've been holding off from forming an opinion on this, but I've reached the point of thinking that it is almost certainly true. :D

Not sure whether I'd say 'beyond reasonable doubt' or 'on the balance of probabilities', but I think it's true. :D

Time will tell...

There's a major clue. Deborah 'Victoria' Watling has confirmed on her website that she and Frazer 'Jamie' Hines are going to be at the press conference on Thursday. That implies that at least one or more of the episodes are from one of the six incomplete stories of her tenure as Victoria Waterfield: The Evil of the Daleks, The Abominable Snowmen, The Ice Warriors, The Enemy of the World, The Web of Fear, and Fury from the Deep. One rumour that I heard on another forum states that it's episodes from The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear that have been found. I'm taking those rumours with a very large pinch of salt, but exciting times regardless. :)

Definitely exciting times. I keep finding myself amazed every time something new/old turns up, just because you don't really expect anything to anymore. Glad I finally got into Doctor Who back in 2010 (being from the Netherlands, I only saw a handful of Peter Davison episodes back in the day and didn't understand any of it because I was too young).
