106 Early Doctor Who Episodes Found at TV Station in Ethiopia

I’ll admit that despite my love for science fiction and things geeky I’ve never been a fan of Doctor Who. I tried watching the show and I’ve never succeeded in making it through the first commercial break. If you are a big fan of the show you may be excited to hear that a number of episodes from early in the series have been rediscovered – some of which were believed to have been lost forever.

As the story goes, when BBC purged a bunch of old footage they trashed some who early Doctor Who episodes featuring William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton. An incredible 106 of these episodes were discovered at the Ethiopian Radio and Television Agency.

Among the rediscovered episodes are several that were only on the air one time. Those episodes include The Crusade, The Enemy of the World, and The Ice Warriors. Indications are that BBC sold the episodes to the Ethiopian television agency before destroying the originals. The BBC is reportedly currently in the process of having those copies returned. Exactly what the BBC will do with these episodes is unknown, presumably they’ll be shown again – or sold on disc – to fans of the series.
