BBC News online has today provided some degree of authenticity to the rumours surrounding missing Doctor Who episodes with a report that tells us nothing new, but hey – it’s there.

It would be nice if we could find out in advance just how many episodes have been found, but the smart money is on the BBC letting this one play on over the next few months, given the build up of the omnirumour so far…
