I'd be rather disappointed if you didn't know the news already, but here it is again, just in case.

Galaxy 4: Episode Two and The Underwater Menace: Episode Two have been found. The first new episodes to be recovered since The Daleks' Master Plan: Episode Two in 2004.

Yep. The lost episode count now stands at 106. It feels good to say that. 106. It excited me to no end typing that.

I love The Underwater Menace. I don't care if it's perceived as a terrible episode. It has Ben and Polly and Fish People and Jamie and Patrick Troughton. I don't think anything else matters.

I have the audio release of Galaxy Four, but haven't gotten around to listening to it. I may do so now. This is all so exciting!

I see the Radio Times is reporting leads on 'new' lost episodes too. Now that these episodes have shown up, nearly FIFTY years later, I am hopeful. Incredibly excited. (Fingers crossed for The Evil of the Daleks and/or The Daleks' Master Plan...)

(Was that as jumbled as I read it to be? If so, blame it on the excitement.)

(It HAD to be said...)

They have recovered a Patrick Troughton episode with Ben and Polly and where he wears a silly hat!

I mean, what more can we ask for? Oh, wait, we have an actual episode with Vicki and the Chumblies, where she patronises the Doctor. ♥

It does make you want ALL THE REST NOW PLEASE too, though, doesn't it? ;-/ (I want Marco Polo, The Myth Makers, The Massacre, The Power of the Daleks, The Highlanders, The Macra Terror and ALL OF THEM, DAMMIT. :-D)


And :LOL:

The Trought in a funny hat. Gold. I love funny hats. They're rather awesome. That's why I'm looking forward to The Reign of Terror. That hat is the most amazing hat in the history of Doctor Who.

And I love Vicki also. And Galaxy 4 sounds rather interesting. The rest of the episode? I rather hope it's found. The Chumblies and the Drahvins and more Vicki, it just sounds like the perfect episode.

I do WANT them all, actually. The Massacre is high on my list. I've listened to the audio of that story more than once. It's incredibly dark, and I love it when Who gets like that. (I also want Marco Polo, The Crusade, the fourth episode of The Tenth Planet, just all of them. ALL OF THEM! And if I can't have that, all of them with Ben and Polly...)

Heh, yes, the Doctor has always seemed to like a silly hat. :-)

Vicki is just great. And, yes, ALL OF THEM would be lovely. Probably completely impossible, but we have to dream, otherwise we'd just have to cry instead. :-/

I'm okay with not seeing The Feast of Steven again... but I think that's my limit. I demand them all :P!

But in all honesty, I'm rather hopeful that at least a few more stories show up. Hopefully completing mostly complete stories.

Like I said, there's always Zimbabwe. Because The Sun's reliable like that.

But it has the Meddling Monk and 1920s Hollywood and silliness, and the Doctor, Sara and Steven drinking champagne in the TARDIS. I am not sure I want to listen to that, but if I can watch Hartnell and his excellent comedy timing, along with Peter Butterworth, well... Sounds like a nice Christmassy thing to me! ;-)

Yes. And, :lol:

That does sound tempting. Perhaps I shouldn't be too hasty in denouncing it. Plus, anything with Jean Marsh in is fine by me.
