BFI To Screen Web of Fear Episode 4 at Edinburgh

Continuing their love of all things Doctor Who (and who could blame them?), the BFI have confirmed a screening of the recently recovered The Web of Fear: Episode 4.

The screening will take place at their Missing Believed Wiped Event in Edinburgh on December 1st. In addition to the long-feared-lost Doctor Who episode, other curiosities from the early days of television, such as It’s Lulu and At Last the 1948 Show, will also be screened at the event on December 1st.

The Web of Fear: Episode 4 is, of course, one of the long-missing Patrick Troughton episodes that were recently found in Nigeria. The series 5 serial famously featured the introduction of UNIT and Colonel (later Brigadier) Lethbridge-Stewart (played by fan-favorite Nicholas Courtney), as well as the return of the giant furballs known as the Yeti. The Doctor’s companions were Jamie (Frazer Hines) and Victoria (Deborah Watling).

Tickets to the event are available online, on the phone (0131 228 2688) and in person at the Filmhouse Box Office in Edinburgh.

    What a shame. So hoping it was going to be Marco Polo. In fact I was really looking forward to the end credits finishing rolling on the 50th episode and then suddenly a trailer for Polo kicking in unexpectedly. Ah well. Good to have some of them back at any rate. A nice slew of released “lost” episodes is still hopefully a dream that is somewhat alive thanks to “Indy”.
