While not a missing episode, this rare 16mm Doctor Who of part 3 of 1968’s The Wheel in Space available on eBay right now is sure to attract interest.
Says the seller:
16mm film. DOCTOR WHO tv episode “Wheel In Space” Part 3. Starring Patrick Troughton as The Doctor. This is episode 3 from a 6 part story. From what I know, only this episode and episode 6 exist at the BBC. As the Beeb have their own copy of episode 3, I’m only selling my copy on this basis. Condition: Excellent Print…no scratches, didn’t notice splices, picture and sound very good. This episode looks complete from the beginning to the end with all credit titles, black and white. Film will be posted by Special Delivery. Please Note: UK BIDDERS ONLY.
However, if you want it, the price will be high. Over on eBay the bidding starts at £799.00!
