The BBC Have announced that part 3 of "Galaxy Four" (first broadcast in 1965) and part 2 of "The Underwater Menace" (first broadcast in 1967) and both had been thought to be lost, have been returned to the BBC.

The episodes are thought to have originated from the ABC Channel in Australia.

Christmas has come early for Doctor Who fans. [Smile]

Gives hope for the beatles juke box jury and top of the pops performances to one day be found (actually wasnt some mute juke box jury footage discovered and they were going to sync it with the circulating audio. Whatever happened to that?)

The good thing re Doctor Who is that the beeb have a tendency to release the episodes on dvd so these wont be locked in a cupboard never to be seen.

If the Juke Box Jury footage was found, this may need resoration to make it good enough quality to release on DVD.

 

The Doctor Who stories are getting released on DVD and all the footage is repaired (if damaged), clean up and where appropriate re-coloured (if the original colour film has been lost and a black and white copy of the episode exists) but this is done by BBC staff in their spare time and they're not paid to do it either - they just do it for the love of the programme and to make the Doctor Who stuff look the best it can.

It would be unusual for the bbc to release beatles footage on dvd eg The Beatles On Record screened in 2009. The best fans can hope for is it being shown on tv at some point on leaked on to the net.

A quick look around seems to suggest  some silent footage was in circulation and the bbc unearthed audio. But that was in 2001 and the audio from Juke Box Jury was circulating in 1999. So maybe it was longer or in better quality, or someone bought the bootleg.

I have no idea.

Yeah, sorry – I meant that if the footage was cleaned up to a broadcastable quality the BBC may broadcast it again and not release it on DVD.  Apologies.

Interestingly a believed wiped David Bowie performance of Jean Genie on Top Of The Pops in 1973 has also been discovered and will be aired in early 2012. If nothing more it offers hope that someday some bbc beatles footage will turn up somewhere.

I thought there was a DW thread but I can't find it so I'll post this here: http://uk.tv.yahoo.com/matt-sm.....57874.html for any whovians (think there's one or two here).

I quite like Matt Smith as the Doctor but Christopher Eccleston is still my favourite (havent seen much at all of the show pre McCoy so include them). Is Matt Smith the 11th or 12 Doctor, im interested to know how the BBC will handle the whole no more than 13 Doctors can regenerate issue.

The new half of this series has been patchy however has picked up a bit after the first half with the Ponds which felt like everyone was treading water. The 50th anniversary episode should be fantastic. No doubt there will be a lot of events on to celebrate, and no doubt a lot will be ongoing at the same time with the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. Sadly i think another 50th anniversary from the same time as Doctor Who's first episode will be overlooked totally and go by with little more than an "oh" from those in a position to do something.

Matt Smith was the 11th, I think (hence the name of his 1st programme - 'The Eleventh Hour&#39a-hard-days-night-george-10.

There might be a special doc on or something to commemorate the event but I do think that anything else that happens/happened near to that date will be overshadow by JFK's murder, though it is the day after so, maybe, we'll see.

Very excited for the 50th anniversary (Zygons, John Hurt, David Tennant) and the twelfth Doctor. Also, I met and got my picture with Tom Baker a few weeks ago at the MCM Expo! :)

For anyone who cares or is interested the next person to play the Doctor, taking over from Matt Smith, will be unveiled this Sunday (4th August) at 7pm on BBC1.

Why they don't just tell us in a press release and instead have to spin it out for 30 minutes is annoying. Does everything have to become some overhyped, sensationalised melodrama nowadays? Still, at least it will put an end to the ridiculous articles in the tabloids on either who has definitely got a possible chance of being in with a shout of maybe being considered for getting the role or why it must be a woman because that means its not a man and therefore sexist.

I'm not a fan of Doctor Who nowadays, but when I was a kid I loved seeing the regenerations. I never knew in advance who it was going to be (not that I'd have known the actors' names anyway when I was 8, 9, 10). Putting it out in a press release would be BORING!

As for tabloids, don't read 'em.

Peter Capaldi off The Thick Of It is supposedly favourite for, but I don't think it'll be him- the other ones of the new era haven't been that famous beforehand. I'm not mad on Matt Smith- David Tennant will always be my Doctor.

Oh, I stand corrected. Capaldi will be epic though.

Delighted with the announcement as Peter Capaldi is an amazing actor with an incredible range so will be fascinating to see where he takes the twelfth Doctor. Will also be interesting to see how long he takes the reigns for as the role is quite time-consuming.

My favourite Doctor remains Christopher Eccleston and he only stayed for 1 series before leaving due to not wanting to be typecast.

You can watch the incredibly drawn out moment when he was revealed on the BBC here.

And if youre over 18 and never seen it check out The Thick of It, one of the best tv programmes in decades.

Peter Capaldi, it turns out, has a Beatles connection:

 

New Doctor Who starred in two Beatles-related productions

Capaldi played Beatle George Harrison in the 1985 TV film “John and Yoko: A Love Story,” which starred Mark McGann and Kim Miyori in the title roles.

“They cast all the Beatles as completely the wrong height although we didn't find this out until the first day of filming!,” he told the Liverpool Echo about the movie. “We came running out to play at a supposed Shea Stadium with Ringo being a huge, tall guy and Mark McGann playing John. I loved it having been a Beatles fan as a child.”

He also had a role in “John, Paul, George, Ringo … and Bert,” the Willy Russell play inspired by the story of the Beatles that was staged in both England and the U.S.

"Doing the Beatles play was actually one of my first proper jobs as an actor and I got embraced by Willy and his lot through that role and ended up in 'Blood Brothers,' so I've always felt an affinity with Liverpool since then,” he said.

Sorry, when I wrote this I didn't realise it wasn't a regeneration taking place, just an announcement of a new actor. I shouldn't have voiced an opinion on something I know nothing about!

Glad it's Capaldi though. I loved him in The Thick Of It and In The Loop, and since Doctor Who's made in the city where I live there's an outside chance I'll see him around.

I saw the Doctor Who movie when I was little at my great-grandparent's house and I liked it, but I'm not really into movies where all the animals talk anymore.

Will be interesting to see how Capaldi plays the doctor. He's the oldest actor who's played him for some time, and he is very experienced. I'll watch the first episode, at least. I was surprised they chose him as he appeared in an episode set in Pompeii when D.Tennant was the doctor. I wonder if they'll somehow connect the two characters, or if we're supposed to pretend that we haven't ever seen him before.

Same here. He's just the best IMO, certainly out of the most recent ones, anyway.

I think I missed this joke the first time you told it.

(In case that isn't a joke or anyone doesn't get it, unknown is referring to Doctor Dolittle- IMHO the books and the stage production were far superior to the film)

Capaldi is a good choice IMO, he was excellent in Torchwood: Children of Earth. I do not think he'll be "connected" to his Pompeii character or his CoE character. They invented excuses for Martha and Gwen, but they didn't for Karen Gillan, who was also in The Fires Of Pompeii, or for Colin Baker, and they can't have a brief mention of him being "family" of John Frobisher or the Pompeii guy because the Doctor isn't human.
