Two Missing Classic Doctor Who Episodes Recoverted, Yes Really!

After the radio waves April Fools recirculation (info shortly), there is some very good news, TWO previously missing Doctor Who classic episodes have been recovered!

Galaxy 4 part three and The Underwater Menace part two have been found, sadly these do not complete any storys, and neither is likely to feature high on a fan wish list, but any find is a marvel after so many decades and each episode has its own merits. 108 episodes were - until now - missing from the BBC archive, so its 106 now :) The BBC restoration team are busy with them ATM.

Both where found in the collection of Terry Burnett, who used to be an engineer at TVS (the former ITV franchise based in Southampton), which proves the chances of finding material is still possible!
