Vintage Doctor Who' Episodes, Believed Lost, Have Rematerialized
By Dave Itzkoff, The New York Times' 'Arts Beat' Blog - December 12th, 2011


Patrick Troughton, left, as the Doctor in
a 1967 episode of Doctor Who. (BBC)


He's a centuries-old Time Lord from an alien planet who can travel the universe and history itself, so why shouldn't the Doctor be able to make things materialize out of thin air now and then?

The BBC has recovered two vintage episodes of Doctor Who, the long-running science-fiction adventure series, dating to the 1960s and featuring two of the original actors who played the Doctor, The Guardian reported.

The first episode, Airlock, is a chapter in a four-part series from 1965 called Galaxy Four and features the original Doctor Who star, William Hartnell, as its hero. The story line revolves around a race of female clones called Drahvins and includes an appearance by the Chumblies, robots who recur throughout the series. The second episode, an entry from the 1967 series The Underwater Menace, stars Patrick Troughton, the actor who succeeded Mr. Hartnell, and pits the doctor against a mad scientist trying to bring back Atlantis.

In the nearly 40-year history of the Doctor Who franchise the Doctor has been portrayed (in his official incarnations) by 11 different actors including the show's current star, Matt Smith. More than 100 of its earliest episodes, The Guardian said, are missing because the BBC did not start backing up its recordings until 1978. (Apparently no one there traveled into the future to see the inventions of home video and nostalgia.)

The rediscovered episodes, found in the collection of a former British television engineer, are planned for release on DVD next year.

This is fantastic news. I still hope they find the other parts to the Web of Fear, The Faceless Ones and The Macra Terror. Marco Polo would be cool too.

Now, were these episodes found on videotape or 16mm transfer?

Now in NE Tucson, AZ with a cheap rabbit ears antenna. Got everything except KTTU (MyNetwork).

As pointed out in various other articles, the person bought the film canisters. At the time of the airing of these episodes, consumer VCRs did not exist and the BBC distributed 16mm film to be compatible with everyone for foreign sales. AFAIK, no 405 line video tape reached consumer hands. Too bad.

Kind of a spoiler, but in case you can avoid all the publicity I'll put it in spoiler tags anyway:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Doctor Who: goodbye, Amy Pond



They have never had the most straightforward relationship. But now Amy Pond – childhood friend, mother-in-law and long-serving companion – is to wave goodbye to the Doctor as she bows out of Doctor Who.

Pond, played by Karen Gillan, will leave the Saturday teatime family show during the next series – but not until she's been reunited with the Doctor.

"Amy and [husband] Rory will be rejoining us next series and joining the Doctor back on the Tardis," Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat confirmed after a screening of this year's Doctor Who Christmas Day special.

"But the final days of the Ponds are coming – and during the next series. I'm not telling you when and certainly not telling you how. But that story is going to come to a heartbreaking end."

This year's festive Doctor Who is itself stuffed with heartbreaking moments, as we spend Christmas with an evacuated family in the second world war. But the departure of strong-willed Amy will be mourned by many fans.

"There are only so many more adventures with the lovely Amy and the lovely Rory. So that story, next series, during the series will be over," Moffat said. "And then the Doctor is going to meet a new friend – and I'm not going to tell you anything about he, she or it!"

Karen Gillan's character first arrived on screen dressed as a kissogram during Matt Smith's first episode as the Doctor. "We've had the most incredible journey," said Smith of Gillan.

"We took over the show and we really had to hold hands and help each other through it in many ways. So it's very disappointing, but one has to remember that this show is about change and regeneration and that's what galvanises it and moves it forward. It's about looking forward, always."

A new companion for the Doctor has not yet been cast – with Moffat even teasing that it could be an alien. "Who knows? It is Doctor Who. There's a universe of people to choose from," he said.

This year's Christmas special contains a not too subtle nod to The Chronicles of Narnia in its title – and it won't take long for fans to spot the debt The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe owes to CS Lewis .

Outnumbered's Claire Skinner is zipped back in time to play a mum in second-world-war England looking after her two evacuated children with the help – supposedly – of a rather overexcited Doctor.

Bill Bailey and Arabella Weir make charming – and hilarious – appearances later in the episode.

As is traditional, the show, which airs at 7pm on Christmas Day, is filled with tear-jerking moments – even if it takes the Doctor a while to get his head round what exactly all the weeping is for.

"I think Doctor Who always [wears its] hearts on its sleeves – but yes, Christmas Day is a big, sentimental, loving day and the Doctor on Christmas Day [is] just a little bit more Willy Wonka somehow," said Moffat.

"It's the kind of day that's made for him: nobody minds being silly, no one worries about good taste. People just like glittery things and chocolate for breakfast."

An excited audience of fans included a surprising number of politicians with their children, including the chancellor, shadow chancellor, Charles Kennedy and Labour MP Tom Watson among others.

For the first time in more than 40 years, clips from two lost Doctor Who episodes unearthed at a village fete were shown earlier this week – with children catching perhaps their first glance of William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton as the Doctor.

Smith revealed that Patrick Troughton was his favourite Doctor, which is one possible explanation as to why the second and 11th Doctor share a love of bow ties.

Gillan is to play Jean Shrimpton next year in a BBC4 drama about the 1960s model's love affair with photographer David Bailey.

Ok, just making sure. 16mm film's better than nothing at all.

Yep - almost every B&W Doctor Who surviving recording is a 16mm film tele-recording of a B&W (405 mainly) video recording (itself containing film inserts).

The recent DVD releases have used Vidfire to interpolate this back to an interlaced look very effectively. (The Doctor Who Restoration Team are doing platinum standard remastering - textbook examples of how to do this stuff)

Some Doctor Who episodes shot in colour only exist as B&W film recordings, but enough subcarrier information survives (little dots) to be detected and colour properly regenerated (and the dots also assist with registering and removing geometric distortion introduced by the video->film process originally used)

Good grief! Never though about the dot crawl being useful.

I got started with the Doctor when I lived in Scotland for a couple of years, seeing all of seasons 9 and 10. It is unfortunate that the 3rd episode of "Planet of the Daleks" only exists as B&W film.

Richard Russell, the brains behind the implementation of the amazing Transform PAL decoder, has documented his excellent work on colour recovery. It's amazing the results they are getting.

Thanks for the link. Very interesting. And that posting is over three years old. Gotta have improvements since then.

And DW/RWS archivist Mark Ayres has been pretty busy restoring the audio as well, making surround mixes from the mono film tracks (sometimes restoring the audio twice within a few years due to better available technology). He's been very busy for a while now.

On a sidenote, I'm really anticipating the completion of Delia Derbyshire's audio archives within the coming years. Maybe they'll release a "best-of" album.

Yep - significant ones I believe. Also processors are getting faster and faster still so more and more complex algorithms become practical.

Some of the early DVD remastered releases are being remastered again with even better results.

'Doctor Who': The Doctor's new companion revealed
By Clark Collins, EW.com's 'Inside TV' Blog - Mar. 21, 2012



Doctor Who executive producer Stephen Moffat announced that actress Jenna-Louise Coleman will play Matt Smith's new companion following the departure of Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill later this year. It's not often the Doctor meets someone who can talk even faster than he does, but it's about to happen, Moffat said in a statement. Jenna is going to lead him on his merriest dance yet. And that's all you're getting for now. Who she's playing, how the Doctor meets her, and even where he finds her, are all part of one of the biggest mysteries the Time Lord ever encounters. Even by the Doctor's standards, this isn't your usual boy meets girl.

The 25-year-old Coleman's credits include the British soap Emmerdale, Captain America, and the upcoming miniseries Titanic, which was penned by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes and will be broadcast by ABC on April 14 and 15.

According to Metro, Moffat revealed at a press conference that Gillan's Amy and Darvill's Rory would make their exit from the show in the fifth episode of the new season.

Ben Browder to guest star on Doctor Who

Category: ACTORS | Tags: Ben Browder, SG-1
by Darren


As if his leading roles on Farscape and Stargate SG-1 weren't enough, Ben Browder is ratcheting up his geek credentials even further. The Cameron Mitchell actor has been booked for a guest appearance on Doctor Who for the BBC, according to the show's official magazine.

Browder will appear in the third episode of the next season (the show's seventh or thirty-third, depending on how you count them). The story is said to be set in the American Wild West, though it is filming in Spain. The currently untitled episode is written by Toby Whithouse (BBC3′s Being Human) and directed by Saul Metzstein.

Rather than its usual spring premiere, Who will begin its seventh season in the fall on BBC and BBC America.

New 'Who': The Trailer for 'Doctor Who' Season 7 (Video)
By Kimberly Potts, TheWrap.com - Mar. 26, 2012

Doctor Who is getting a new companion during the show's upcoming seventh season, and if the new trailer for the season is an indication, it's also going to be an action-packed time in the Doctor's life.

The trailer for season seven -- which will premiere later this year and will tie in with the classic British series' 50th anniversary in 2013 -- highlights the Western-themed season premiere episode. It will look at the last shared adventures of Who (Matt Smith) and Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and her husband, Rory (Arthur Darvill).

Gillan and Darvill are leaving the show during season seven, and "Captain America" and "Emmerdale" actress Jenna-Louise Coleman will join the show as Doctor Who's replacement companion.

Watch the season seven trailer below:

Looking forward to the new season, although I wish they would back off on the season long story arcs. I miss the good old days when the Doctor just was a wanderer in time and space and people questioned his sanity.

Have to agree. Its okay to have an underlying story, but S6 didn't quite work for me. Still good, but not up to what I've come to expect from the doctor.

Sure loved her [Amy] more than Donna "Worst Companion Ever" Noble. Other notables, IMO:

Rose Tyler - prettiest
Martha Jones - hottest

Note I just jumped on board the Tardis with the 9th Doctor, so not familiar with the earlier ones.

I love Amy Pond.....But Donna Noble was my favorite, The Runaway Bride is one of my favorite episodes. I teared up when the Doctor had to wipe her mind. So sad.

Yeah it was downhill after that. I found her boyfriend Rory a much better character that they didn't dig enough into. Amy started strong and Matt started weak and ended up opposites for me Amy grew less interesting and Matt got really good. Matt really grew on me as a Doctor.

Hey archiguy - if you get the chance, and can see past the cheesy effects and low budget production, you might want to check out some of the older Who. The early Tom Baker years are terrific IThe Ark in Space, Genesis of the Daleks, The Deadly Assassin). Some of the Pertwee stories are pretty good too. The Three Doctors is worth watching just to see the interaction between Troughton and Pertwee. Troughton's best performance IMHO.
