Doctor Who: Missing in Action

Long-term fans may well remember this short documentary, which aired with repeats of Planet of the Daleks back in 1993, Doctor Who‘s 30th anniversary year.

Narrated by Nicholas Courtney, the video below explains the state of play (as it was then) concerning the missing episodes from the series’ early years, mainly from the Second Doctor’s era (1966-1969) and featuring music producer/fan Ian Levine.

(Warning: microcosm of old-school fandom in evidence!)

Available only on YouTube and highly unlikely to appear on a DVD (due to the way in which fans are portrayed), this short film nevertheless presents a nice historical perspective to the quest for missing episodes and the state of fandom in 1993…
