Nine long-lost episodes of Doctor Who which have not been seen since the 1960s have been recovered after they were tracked down to a store room in Nigeria, gathering dust.
The discovery will cause much excitement for devotees of the long-running series, for which there are dozens of missing episodes dating back to its early years
The previously lost nine shows were among 11 traced to a television relay station and the find brings back to life an entire six-episode story, while another is almost complete.
The newly found programswhich introduce the character of Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, better known to audiences as The Brigadierwill be available on iTunes from today and will later come out on DVD.

They found them together with all of those extra “Super Bowl Champions - Buffalo Bills” t-shirts and caps...
I am the sole heir and executor of a trust which contained 9 lost episodes of the television program "Dr. Who" and 10 million U.S. dollars..."
I got caught up that show in the 1980s. “Campy” would describe it.
If only they would find the missing Johnny Carson episodes.
They were lost when the studios taped over old shows with new ones to save money.
Not a dr fan. But youse guys are.
Who gets the money?
Every dollar of it.
Why not he earned it.
Yes. Sometimes his wife picks it up
They’re obviously looking in the wrong places for those tapes.
They should start in Hollywood.
Interesting, I had just read about those episodes a few months ago..
Sounds like a scam......
Erasing shows to “save money” was something that BBC was apparently infamous for, speaking of that.
That is good news.
Yes, and America had a whole network’s archives dumped in the Hudson once too. Anyone remember the DuMont network??
Those were recovered. In a closet in Austrailia or something.
