Rejoicing in Who-ville

My friend Sukey in Arizona is a dedicated Whovian. About a week ago she sent me a link to this article in Britain’s Daily Mirror. In case you haven’t heard yet, 106 original Doctor Who episodes have surfaced in… of all places… Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!

Deep down, I’ve always known it’s a bad idea to ever throw anything away.

I hope Ethiopian Television is aware they are sitting on a gold mine. I also hope they are successful in negotiating a deal. Then maybe we can finally see those shows. Like I’ve said before…

Unless the angels get the phone box.

Though in this case it seems they’ve had it all along.

    Who’d have thought, eh?
    At first I read that this find had been exaggerated, but turns out they found nine episodes comprising two complete stories from the second Dr. Who. Which is very early days and most like the Dr. Who that I only knew from comics as a kid. Great fun to see the “companions” reacting to their original scenes 45 years later!
