Missing Episodes Rumour Gets Update And Publicity

This is still a very hit and miss topic, where there's a lot of arguing going back and forth, but at midnight, The Mirror posted an article on the fact that 106 episodes have been found.

Unfortunately, it is very sparse on details, only mentioning an unnamed "insider" and a Doctor Who expert, Stuart Kelly, having announced it at Wigtown Book Festival in Scotland last week after being "told by a friend".

This isn't helped when they quote the BBC insider as saying “This is a really big deal for the BBC and is set to make them millions from the sale of the DVDs", so we can assume that the news reporting it is simply hogwash, even if it has been featured on Sky News.

But all hope is not lost as, while it may not be much, as Dr Who Online have now said on Twitter that there are a number of episodes (not nearly 100, though) recovered and that more information will be revealed within the next month.

This rumour is almost certainly false or at least greatly exaggerated. A) There are 106 missing Doctor Who episodes so if this rumour is true *all* of them have been found in one fell swoop B) according to only the first two seasons of Doctor Who aired in Ethiopia meaning this find would include 95 Doctor Who episodes that never actually were broadcast on Ethoipian TV. (Only 11 episodes missing from BBC archives are from season 1 and 2).

Either way, if just Marco Polo and the Crusade are recovered, that's a big win in my book. Any of the missing Troughton, and I'm on a cloud!
