Philip Morris On The Importance Of Finding The Lost Episodes [VIDEO]

In a small interview with BBC News at the Doctor Who Celebration in London on the anniversary of the show, the man who found the recently-released missing Patrick Troughton lost episodes, The Web Of Fear and The Enemy Of The World, spoke about why it was so important about finding lost episodes of Doctor Who and other British television shows.

Philip Morris was asked why the world was so excited that these episodes of the Second Doctor, long thought to be lost forever, had been found.

I think if you look at the show itself, it is very unique. When it was first brought out and transmitted, there was nothing else like it. When it sells good stories and all the pieces come together, there’s no other show like it – its one of its own.

 

Its one of the big icons of the 20th century if you like, you know, with all the great science fiction series out there like Star Trek; it’s up there with those,  it’s one of the greats. And will only get bigger of course!

He is *such* a fan…

Rebecca is new to the Who world, having only recently watched the entire new series in a span of 8 days. She is no stranger to sci-fi though, being a life long Trekkie and has vague memories of seeing the 4th Doctor on US television as a child. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she is a fan of pop culture and loves movies and books so much she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She also likes to make attempts at various forms of art including photography and painting. Rebecca is currently working her way through as many classic serials and as many books related to the show that she can find and wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.
