The Missing Episodes – The Second Doctor Volume 1 from DWM!

Doctor Who Magazine has released details of its latest special edition, in which it presents the earliest adventures of the Second Doctor, Patrick Troughton, in pictorial form!

Doctor Who Magazine Special Edition  The Missing Episodes – The Second  Doctor Volume 1

Sadly, 106 Doctor Who episodes from the 1960s aren’t currently held in the BBC’s archives. The original videotapes were erased, and although film recordings for many early episodes were retained, others seem lost forever.

Fortunately for fans, some of these missing episodes survive in telesnap form – these are photographic images that were taken of television screens as the stories were originally broadcast. This 116-page Special from Doctor Who Magazine presents the earliest stories from the Second Doctor’s era in the form of telesnaps, featuring the stories THE POWER OF THE DALEKS, THE HIGHLANDERS, THE UNDERWATER MENACE, THE MOONBASE, THE MACRA TERROR and THE FACELESS ONES .

There’s also a fascinating feature by researcher and author Richard Molesworth, which reveals how some missing episodes of Doctor Who have miraculously been found and returned to the archives over the years.

Fill the gap in your collection, with Doctor Who Magazine: The Missing Episodes – The Second Doctor Volume 1! The magazine is out now, price £5.99.

    This is a surprise, since the First Doctor edition suggested they wouldn’t be putting a Second Doctor edition together until they got some indication of sales of the first one. But a project of this scope had to have been already underway well before the First Doctor book even came out!

      Good point, Al. Mind you, I’m glad they’re going it – it’s a brilliant idea!
