Doctor Who Missing Episodes Marathon at the Prince Charles Cinema!
The recovery of nine missing Doctor Who episodes last year was undoubtedly a highlight of the 50th anniversary and to celebrate the release of The Web of Fear on DVD a missing episodes marathon will take place at the Prince Charles Cinema in London next Saturday (February 22nd) in association with the BFI.
This ticket only event will also feature a 45 minute Q&A session (hosted by Toby Hadoke) with key cast members as well as a member of the Troughton family.
Commencing at 11.15am, tickets for this one-of-a-kind marathon go on-sale tomorrow morning at 9am from www.princecharlescinema.com/events/events.php?seasonanchor=drwhomissing
Tickets for the 12 episode screening are £14 (£11.50 for Prince Charles Cinema members, 25% concessionary rate for members of Equity, the MU and Writers Guild.)
Paul Vickery is Head Programmer at the Prince Charles Cinema:
I couldn’t be more proud to be part of this one-off experience – as a cinema, it’s a dream come true for us to finally have the Doctor fill our screen and delight audiences and fans of the show. As a HUGE fan of the series I’ll be there too, front row-centre. I’m very excited about having the opportunity to revisit these incredible episodes in a truly unique way… on the big-screen. It’s sure to be one of those events for the PCC history books and I for one can’t wait.
Dick Fiddy, Missing Believed Wiped Co-ordinator at the BFI says:
These finds are truly significant, offering a further opportunity to re-visit the Patrick Troughton era. The recovery of these episodes indicates the possibility that more episodes are out there somewhere awaiting re-discovery – a mouth-watering prospect for all Doctor Who fans and those interested generally in the recovery of missing UK television programmes.
