What with our winter break in December we didn’t get the chance to chat in depth about the Missing Believed Wiped event and the announcement of the discovery of missing episode from the classic serials Galaxy Four and The Underwater Menace.
Galaxy 4 was broadcast over four weeks, from 11 September to 2 October 1965. It starred William Hartnell as the Doctor, Peter Purves as Steven Taylor, and Maureen O’Brien as Vicki. Among the guest performers was Barry Jackson, who would later appear in 1979 serial The Armageddon Factor. He is also known to modern audiences as pathologist Dr. George Bullard in Midsomer Murders.
Meanwhile, The Underwater Menace stars Patrick Troughton as the Doctor, Michael Craze as Ben, Anneke Wills as Polly, and Frazer Hines as Jamie McCrimmon. This went out in early 1967, the four parts airing from 14 January to 4 February.
Neither serial has been seen in its complete form in years.
As a result this new podKast discusses the amazing news of the rediscovery of these episodes as well as giving Brian, James and Christian the chance to suggest existing episodes that might be apt for accidental loss…
