The latest version of the rumored recovery of a horde of classic Doctor Who episodes from the Sixties (a.k.a. “The Omnirumor”) is rearing its ugly head again, just in time for the program’s 50th anniversary on November 23. This comes a month after BBC Worldwide announced the recovery of episodes of the Patrick Troughton era serials “The Enemy of the World” and “The Web of Fear,” and their subsequent release for sale on iTunes.

The Omnirumor’s latest regeneration seems to have originated from the unofficial website www.doctorwhoisepic.com. (Don’t look at me, I didn’t name it.) It claims that the Doctor Who Live: The Afterparty special on BBC 3, which will air on Nov. 23 will announce that all but eleven of the 97 episodes of Doctor Who that are still missing from the BBC archives have been recovered. It would leave only four serials, including “The Daleks’ Master Plan,” incomplete.

Meanwhile, the more credible Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool (one of the first reporters on The Omnirumor) speculates that “ we still think we may well get Marco Polo, and maybe more, by the end of the year.” Uncle Rich was one of the first to report on The Omnirumor, and accurately mentioned “The Enemy of the World” and “The Web of Fear” as serials that had been all or mostly recovered.

This is still all rumor, and no official word from the BBC about a further recovery of missing Doctor Who episodes has been made. It looks as though we will have to see what happens on Nov. 23 as to whether or not more of Doctor Who’s lost past has been rediscovered.
