Doctor Who: The Moonbase

Doctor Who Missing Episodes Infographic!

The recent recovery of nine Doctor Who missing episodes has alerted fans new and old to the continued plight of most of the Patrick Troughton era of the show – but how bad is the situation, really?

Well, thanks to this infographic, you can find out!

With the recovery last week of two Second Doctor stories from Nigeria, how do these additions to the archive affect the holding of Doctor Who’s black-and-white era?

This infographic compares the state of 1960s Doctor Who in the BBC archive between its setup in 1978 and now, examining how it has changed over the last 35 years of hunting for missing episodes.

How much of the era now survives, who has returned episodes, and where have recoveries most commonly been made?
