Episode 2 – Never one to be ahead of the curve, 42 to Doomsday finally talks about missing episodes, and the current voracious rumour that has gripped online fandom for months.
Mark and Rob give a brief history of what missing episodes are, then dissect some of the components to the omnirumour. After that, we then talk about our favourite ‘orphan’ episodes and what stories we’d most like to see back in the archives.
Note: Rob mentions that a return from the ABC to the BBC occurred in July 1975. The correct date was June 1975. He also mentions one or two black and white ‘stories’ were filmed in 35mm film. He meant to say one or two black and white ‘episodes’ were filmed in 35mm film.
