Doctor Who News    17 June 2002
Missing clips online

The Web of Fear

Following our previous report that clips from missing stories had been discovered in New Zealand, we're delighted to present them to you.

Brief clips from The Web of Fear and The Wheel in Space have been recovered thanks to fan Graham Howard.

The 16mm film footage has been given a quick tidy-up by Restoration Team member Steve Roberts and transferred to video for possible future use.

The majority of the scenes from missing episodes come from Episode 4 of The Web of Fear, but also included are scenes from Episodes 2 and 5.

The footage from The Wheel in Space is a collection of cuts to a fight scene between crewman Flannigan and two Cyber-controlled colleagues. Watch out for the head-banging...

The discovery was made by Howard whilst helping to catalogue a collection of film reels. The clips are censor cuts that were made to the episodes before transmission by the New Zealand Broadcasting Corporation (NZBC).

We left the film countdown in as it looked so sweet.

Major thanks to Graham Howard, Steve Roberts and everyone else involved for making this happen. We hope to have a more detailed report from Graham shortly.
