Lost Who episode found

by on Jan.16, 2004, under Television

They’re still out there. Part two of the Doctor Who episode “The Dalek Master Plan”, subtitled “Day of Armageddon”, has been found and said to be in “very good quality,” probably as a 16mm B/W print. The original episode was 12 parts (the longest, and described as “an all-round masterpiece” in the book A Voyage Through 25 Years of Doctor Who), and this is only the third to be found. A BBC engineer at the time they were throwing out the prints from their vault (policy back in the early 70s for old prints not expected to see light again, to make room) “borrowed” it from the trash. There are still 108 missing episodes, so check your attic…
