BBC Worldwide has officially confirmed that nine recordings from the 1960s featuring missing episodes of Doctor Who have been recovered in Nigeria.
A total of eleven Doctor Who episodes were discovered (nine of which had been missing) by Phillip Morris, director of Television International Enterprises Archive, by the tracking records of overseas shipments made by the BBC containing tapes for transmission. BBC Worldwide has re-mastered these episodes to restore them.
Starring Patrick Troughton as the Second Doctor, the stories recovered are ‘The Enemy of the World’, the fourth six-part tale of Season 5 which first aired on the BBC in December 1967, and Episodes 2, 4, 5 and 6 of ‘The Web of Fear’ from 1968.
