2nd Doctor

Classic Who – The Viewing of the Lost

Cross-posted from

I started writing this post a while back, and pretty much had it mostly finished when I found out that they'd discovered two missing episodes!

For those who are unaware, the two episodes for were Galaxy 4 episode 3, and The Underwater Menace episode 2.

The amusing thing is, they are both episodes that I don't think are very good. It's the universe testing the true fans - 'let's see who is happy when they find out it's these two that have been found.'

I suspect I'm a real fan, because nothing could take the shine off the fangasm I'd had from this find. For me, any episode found is akin to winning the lottery in it's likelihood. Finding two is unbelievable.

Anyway, I've made the appropriate edits needed below. This is basically a run down of the resources available to you if you're curious about experiencing old Who, but aren't quite sure how to get around the gaps caused by so many episodes being destroyed or lost.
