Missing Doctor Who tapes

Doctor Who needs your help. Back when the series first started, no one imagined it would become so popular and sadly, some of the old episodes have been lost. They wouldn't have been on DVD or VHS, but on film stored in a film can.

Miraculously, some of these films have been unearthed - at boot fairs and even in people's attics.

We want you to keep your eyes peeled for these missing episodes - ask your friends, relatives, parents - help them sort through their old belongings. You may just get lucky!

If you do find anything that looks like it could be an old episode of Doctor Who then email us here at Blue Peter.

You would be able to keep whatever you find - we would just take a copy of the original.  You could even earn yourself a reward - a full sized classic Dalek model!
