Omnirumour Rumbles On, Press Event Postponed
It’s getting a bit sticky now. Following claims that missing episodes were about to be unveiled online following a press event on Tuesday, The Mirror reports that the BBC has rescheduled the event for the end of this week.
They have been waiting nearly 50 years for this, so a couple of days shouldn’t make any difference.
Oh dear. Someone has misjudged Doctor Who fans.
For the uninitiated, the report refers to the rumour – ongoing since 2011/12 – that lost episodes from the 1960s have been uncovered in places as far-flung as Singapore, Hong Kong, Ethiopia and Maltby, North Yorkshire (that last one might be wrong…). Despite endless denials from the BBC and people connected with Doctor Who, the rumour has somehow persisted.
