Well, you've got 50 years of television to catch up on.

quite a lot of the old episodes have been lost for good though, haven't they?
User avatar #18 to #17 - heartlessrobot (07/15/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure they still have them, just not the original copies.

ok so this is gonna be boring but this is the deal with the destruction of old episodes, in short form.
The BBC destroyed the master tapes of over 300 episodes of Doctor Who, mostly from the first 9 seasons (including the entirety of seasons 1 - 6) but, due to film copies made for overseas broadcast, many episodes have survived, albeit in varying quality (including some of the early 70s episodes, made in colour, only existing in black and white. Although at this point it doesn't matter since theyve now all been colourised)

but there are 106 episodes, mostly from seasons 3 - 5, still missing.
What does exist is complete audio recordings of all of these (most of them in very good quality, especially considering they were recorded with a microphone up to the tv) as well as 'telesnaps' which are basically a series of screenshots (about 60 -70 per episode) for roughly 2/3 of the missing episodes

BUT
they may not be lost for good
the records on what was destroyed is not complete, and many of the films were sent to Africa, so getting in contact with the archives has been difficult and there could still be lost episodes sitting there waiting to be found

There are indeed current rumours that a large bunch of episodes have been found and are being kept back as a 50th anniversary surprise...

I'm just gonna put this out here:

My sister has a friend whose grandmother used to work in TV. The grandmother would save some tapes when the station would junk them. Now, I find this hard to believe, given we're in the States, and a few weren't widely distributed, but the grandmother and my sister's friend claim that they have all doctor who episodes from this time.

It would be great if this were true (I personally find it hard to believe), but even if it were, I think it's all willed to the family, and of course the film is 50 years old and descending, depending on creation date.

User avatar #7 to #6 - yetaxaa (07/15/2013) [-]
and only 33 (or was it 34) of the years since then have had new seasons on tv

I thought this was a great but really sad episode at the same time.

I honestly think this show is vastly overrated
#34 to #23 - ShadowsDemon (07/16/2013) [-]
It's a good show, don't get me wrong, but yeah. It's overrated.

Some of the newer ones are bad but there is a reason it has survived as long as it did

Though I disagree; I respect your opinion. Now come, join me for meat and mead and we shall share tales of other times we shared meat and mead.

But the doctor does know the power source of magic is real

But he thinks it is not because he's a liar

Science can't answer all

technology is that part as well

I hate Owl surgeon

The Doctor got quite the amount of action in that episode.    
   
well as far as Doctor Who gets.
