It only takes a spark….
Internet Whovians have been buzzing the past two days with the rumor that the BBC has something really big up its sleeve for the fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who.
And no, I don’t mean the special on November 23 nor do I mean the two-hour movie about the early days of the show.
This rumor is a bit more, shall we say, monumental.
According to Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool reliable sources have leaked the news that the BBC has found multiple lost stories (not episodes mind you) from the classic era. Among the titles being bandied about as finally being complete in the archives are the first regeneration story “The Tenth Planet” and the Patrick Troughton story “Evil of the Daleks.”
Reports indicate the BBC is sitting on the discovery of these episodes and will tell everyone in November the good news.
