Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Recovered missing episodes of Doctor Who, the world’s longest running sci-fi drama are being revealed and available to view and own for the first time in over 40 years. Ten Doctor Who episodes were discovered through the tracking records of shipments made by the BBC to Africa that contained tapes for transmission. A restoration team has re-mastered each episode from the original black and white 1960s film and subsequently gone through a frame by frame restoration to the fantastic quality that audiences expect from Doctor Who. The first recovered story is The Enemy of the World, the fourth tale of Series 5 which first aired on the BBC in December 1967. The story features Patrick Troughton as both the Second Doctor and his antagonist (Ramon Salamander), alongside companions Jamie (Frazer Hines) and Victoria (Deborah Watling). On Earth in the near future, the Doctor and his companions are enmeshed in a deadly web of intrigue thanks to his uncanny resemblance to would-be 21st century dictator Salamander. He is hailed as the ""shopkeeper of the world"" for his efforts to relieve global famine, but why do his rivals keep disappearing? How can he predict so many natural disasters? The Doctor must expose Salamander's schemes before he takes over the world.

Dr Who The Enemy of the World
The trailer makes it look fantastic. The Barry Letts alumni cast (Colin Douglas, Milton Johns, the recently deceased Christopher Burgess...) make this look like a 70's DW ep but in B&W. The trailer bits of the climactic conforntation in the TARDIS in ep6 are squee fuel (this is an official rating term for DW fans!)
In short this is a disregarded classic Doctor Who serial but, thanks to an incredible blizzard of luck, not for much longer. ABM 11-Oct-2013
Troughton at his best!
Worth it for Patrick Troughton in the first two minutes alone! This James Bond style romp manages to be refreshing and surprising at every turn. The restoration quality is sublime. Go ahead and enjoy a Dr.Who serial lost for 45 years.
Oh my giddy Aunt!
One serial I have long loved and never thought I'd ever see if The Enemy of the World. It's novelisation is brilliant, the audio soundtrack is brilliant, I even loved the telesnap reconstruction.
But THIS... I still can't wrap my head around it.
Not only does it (sort of) boast the only time the Doctor has visited Australia on screen, but it is also one of the greatest ensemble pieces in all of 60s DW. A stunning tale, a stunning find, an easy fifteen dollars spent!
