No matter how big a Whovian you are, it’s likely there are some “Doctor Who” episodes you’ve never seen. At least, not yet. According to a report, episodes from Patrick Troughton’s time as the second Doctor have been unearthed and could be heading to iTunes as soon as Wednesday (October 9).
The rumor comes from Radio Times, though the BBC wouldn’t confirm the news. The site says the episodes were discovered in Africa and have been digitally remastered. That might not be all that was found, though. The Mirror reports than more than 100 episodes were discovered, featuring both Troughton and the original Doctor, William Hartnell.
However, they make it sound like the BBC doesn’t have the episodes just yet, but rather that they were discovered by fans at the Ethiopian Radio and Television Agency.
To add a little more fuel to the fire, the story was also shared on BBC Radio 4 during a Sunday broadcast. They frame it as a report, with no confirmation or denial.
If this all turns out to be true, the “Doctor Who” 50th anniversary just got a lot greater, which is impressive considering how big the celebration already was.
