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.

Did any of the Beatles like Doctor Who? I'm asking because, one, I like Doctor Who, and two, I found this picture.

No idea but it was a big programme of the time so i would imagine they would have seen it at some point. They might have watched it with their kids thru the years.

They were in Doctor Who. Unfortunately i cant find the full clip online but its the reason why we have the small excerpt of Ticket To Ride from Top Of The Pops that was otherwise wiped by the bbc (that clip is on youtube). Why you can put up both parts independently but not together is beyond me (Apple have been involved so its no surprise).

So you have to use youre imagination

I feel like I'm the only human being on earth who's never seen Doctor Who. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6I've only heard of it. Is it like a tv show or something? I really don't want to sound dumb but I feel like I should get with the times!

Oh Sheldon. What a silly goose. I mean I've heard of it from the Internet but I'm assuming that it's British, but if Sheldon watches it, then I'm sure I can get it too ahdn_paul_02

Its a UK sci-fi tv show that began either the same day or the day after With The Beatles was released and i think the first episode was delayed due to the assassination of JFK.

It was massive in the uk but by the end of the 80's it had lost some of its greatness due to awful cheap costumes for the aliens and was eventually taken off the air. After a not so good 90's tv movie it was recommissioned a few years back with my favourite Doctor, Christopher Eccelston (The Doctor can regenerate into another body and is neither male or female meaning that various actors or actresses can play him (tho so far there has not been a female Doctor), supposedly its a maximum of 13 and currently they are on #11 so who knows what will happen).

The Doctor can travel thru time and space in his Tardis usually accompanied by an Earthly assistant usually saving humans, aliens or humanity from other aliens or humans.

 

(I know the basics not the indepth stuff.)

I have never seen the television show, but I did watch the movie when I was little. I wasn't very impressed, though I never did like any of those movies where the animals all talk.

Never watched Doctor Who either but the theme is classic!

I used to be a massive Doctor Who fan until they changed David Tennant (swoon) for the current Doctor, Matt Smith. Still though I didn't know the things mentioned above. The movie, that he can only can regenerate 13 times and that it was first released the same day as 'With The Beatles'.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Same here (apart from the swooning over David Tennant). For me it got too complicated and drawn out after Matt Smith came in and i couldnt be bothered remembering what happened 6 episodes previously and figuring out how it was relevant to the newest one, so turned off and have no idea what happened at the end of the last series.  

I have watched the new series so far, well had it on in the background whilst doing other things. If anything catches my attention i'll rewind and see if it makes sense - tho last Saturdays is still sitting there and i havent found the inclination to watch it.

New season hasn't been that great. And I agree David Tennant is much better than Matt Smith.

 

Anyways, I guess the answer to this question is unknown.

 

I already knew The Beatles appeared in the show, I saw the episode and then came here.

I am fairly sure you are thinking of Doctor Doolittle.

The Doctor is neither male or female 

 

 In canon, the Doctor is very definitely male. Some fans don't like the idea of the Doctor being sexual so in much of the fan fiction released between it being taken off air and coming back, it was stated that Time Lords reproduce asexually from looms.

I really don't think it has got any more complicated under Moffat. I think that must have come from the beginning of The Big Bang, because the story arcs are no more tricky to follow than Torchwood from Series 2. There isn't even a story arc in the latest series.

Anyway, those of you who haven't seen it, start here:

Blink was an amazing episode.

Interested in the Doctor being male as everything writen now is how the next Doctor could be female, as said previously i dont know past the basics and bits of what ive read here, there and in certain places.

As for the complications or not maybe youre right, its possible i just didnt care and yes the latest series can be taken as independant stand alone episodes. The media are about to go doolally as the episode where Amy leaves is next Saturday, it is going to be incredibly over promoted and over hyped.

Yes, I think he/she is (sorry unknown I don´t know your gender). I knew there wasn´t a Doctor Who film.
