Newly Recovered 'Doctor Who' Episodes Revealed
Nine 'Lost Episodes' Make Up Nearly 2 Complete Serials

Word of the discovery of some of the lost episodes spread quickly through the Doctor Who community (see "A Trove of Lost 'Doctor Who' Episodes Found"), and though some may have been wishing the discovery had involved more "lost episodes," this find was very rich indeed with 9 out of the eleven episodes from the "lost" category, a discovery that has reduced the number of missing Doctor Who episodes down from 106 to 97.
As current Doctor Who scribe Mark Gatiss put it to the BBC: "It’s incredible. Every single avenue seemed to have been exhausted, every now and then something turns up--but to have two virtually complete stories out of the blue is absolutely incredible."
The discovery comes just as the BBC is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the show with an extended 75-minute episode that will air next month, which will feature both the current Doctor Matt Smith and his predecessor David Tennant.
