So, other than Mindcrack / Minecraft one of the things that greatly interests me is Doctor Who. Unlike most people who love Doctor Who these days, however, I am the most fond of the classic series. My favorite Doctor is the Second Doctor played by Patrick Troughton and my favorite companion is Scottish Highlander Jamie McCrimmon, played by Frazer Hines. The above is a photo of me cosplaying as Jamie at Gallifrey One in February, just to give you an idea of my enjoyment of said character.
For a bit of history, when Doctor Who first aired in the 1960s, the BBC had no concept of “reruns” or the potential longevity of the series. After selling the serials to any other countries that wanted to air the show, the would then wipe the master tapes. As such, all of the First and Second Doctor episodes were thought to be lost forever. Fortunately, through the dedication of Super Fans and historians, all but 106 episodes were recovered, and that’s the way it stood for many years. You may ask how the Second Doctor is my favorite when most of his stories are missing, and that’s because fans used to record the audio back in the day and audio for every serial has survived. The audio had been timed to “telesnaps” which were photos taken of the TV while the episode aired for the directors to use in their portfolios. These, along with linking narration or subtitles on the telesnaps informing you of actions was how I consumed most of my favorite episodes, including many of my favorite serials such as The Evil of the Daleks (my favorite Doctor Who story of all time), Fury from the Deep (in my top ten favorites of all time) and The Enemy of the World.
The last “lost” serial was discovered in 1996—until this year. Prints of missing Doctor Who episodes were discovered recently in Nigeria, where they had been sold and shelved. These episodes were meant to be returned or destroyed, but for some reason they were shelved and forgotten about instead. This month two previously lost serials were released for the first time in 40-years: The Enemy of the World and The Ice Warriors (which is still missing one episode).
All of that is to say this REALLY AMAZING thing happened this month and I’ve been so super excited about it. Finding even 10 seconds of missing footage would be so exciting; an entire episode would be thrilling, so to find an entire intact serial, and especially one as good as The Enemy of the World just makes me flail about like a little fanboy. XD
I’ve never bought anything off iTunes before, but I downloaded Enemy of the World last night and watched the first two episodes last night… such a good serial, and so involved for such an old series. You might laugh if you saw it if you’re not prepared for old black and white Doctor Who, but oh man… how I wish the new series was even half as good in my eyes… :D
Okay, and I’ll add one more picture—me cosplaying the Second Doctor standing at the official refurbished Eighth Doctor’s console. I’ll be at Gallifrey One again in February 2014 as well, for what it’s worth where my friend Frazer Hines is sure to be giving a panel on the rediscovered serial. :D
And that’s a lot of words to type instead of recording or, you know, watching the rest of the serial, but I just wanted to flail about it a bit… and who knows, maybe turn someone new on to the old series. XD
