So we got the announcement finally, 9 of the lost episodes of Doctor Who have been found. After 45 years The Web of Fear and The Enemy of the World have been found. Personally I’m ecstatic about the finds especially The Enemy of the World. It’s a story I’ve been dying to see for as long as I can remember. Patrick Troughton facing off against…….Patrick Troughton? The excitement has been surging through my body since it was announced at midnight.
The episodes are now available to stream on iTunes but I’m going against my better judgement and waiting for the DVD release in November. Why? Simple…
I am dying to sit down and watch them but I want the extras I want the documentaries and the full experience, I want the physical DVD so I can smell it when it comes through the post. I want to sit down, slip the DVD in the player, sit back and properly enjoy it. This isn’t like waiting for a new film to be released that you haven’t seen, you don’t have to worry about spoilers because I know exactly what the story is, this is simply getting to enjoy something that I’ve waited for for so long.
The rumour is that there are more episodes to follow and who knows if that’s true or not, I’m just happy we’ve got we have. There are no doubt a plethora of happy fanboys today and I hope they’re lapping it up.
Right now however, I’m going to go and put on The Green Death and watch as Jo Grant makes her exit from the TARDIS.
