Missing Doctor Who episodes rediscovered!

Apparently two long-lost episodes of Doctor Who have come to light - "Airlock", the third episode of Galaxy 4 from 1965, and the second episode of the 1967 story The Underwater Menace. The latter becomes the earliest known surviving episode of Patrick Troughton's Second Doctor. I don't have further details - am rather bizarrely following this on Twitter in a Portuguese bistro in Luxembourg, on my way to attend next week's plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg - but I imagine it will be all over the news pretty soon for those of us who care. Looking forward to discovering if the earlier ep is as good as I hope, and the latter as bad as I fear...

Ohh, interesting. I hope it's true.

I am torn between being excited and - rather ungratefully - wishing it had been any other Troughton story than Underwater Menace. Great news, all the same.

I can certainly think of one or two episodes I would rather have turned up than another episode of The Underwater Menace - well, 104 to be precise - but Episode 2 is rather better than Episode 3, and there is some great Troughton stuff in it.

Yup - as I said elsewhere, hey, it's Troughton. I'll take whatever I can get.

WOW! Like the above commenter, not exactly the episodes I would have chosen, but any Who is better than no Who. Thanks for sharing the news. :-)

Confirmed now. Nice story in The Radio Times.
