This story was lost but is now found!, as the prodigal son's father would say.

I've just finished watching `The Enemy of the World' and thoroughly enjoyed it!

I was delighted when in October 2013, the BBC announced to the world that two missing stories of Patrick Troughton's era of `Doctor Who' had been found. Nine episodes were recovered after being missing for many years since their initial transmission. These stories included this one `The Enemy of the World' and `The Web of Fear'. The episodes were found by episode hunter Phillip Morris, who all `Doctor Who' fans owe a great debt of gratitude to. I'm extremely pleased these episodes have been found as it's great to have back with us a complete Patrick Troughton `Doctor Who' story instead of odd missing episodes turning up out of the blue some years.

`The Enemy of the World' was broadcast in 1967-68 during Patrick Troughton's fifth season of `Doctor Who'. Before these missing episodes were found, the only episode of this story to have survived in existence was Episode 3 that was on the 'Lost in Time' DVD. The late director Barry Letts said in an interview that that episode was the weakest of the six episodes of that story. I'm sure Barry would be delighted to hear that the 'The Enemy of the World' has been found and is now complete. This is of course Barry Letts' first association with 'Doctor Who' and the first story he directed, as he would later go on to become a producer of 'Doctor Who' in the early 70s with Jon Pertwee's Doctor.

I bought the audio soundtrack on CD to listen to the story in its entirely back in 2011 before this story was found.

WARNING REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS.

Positive.
1)Patrick Troughton dominates this story from start to finish playing dual roles as the Doctor & it's villian Ramon Salamander.
2)There are no recurring monsters or Aliens involved in this story which is superbly written by David Whittaker, A brilliant character driven piece or writing with a intriguing adventure.
3)Directed by former Third Doctor Producer The Late Barry Letts.

Negative.
1)This is a 6 part adventure lost for over 46 years, Shame on ypu BBC.
2)Jamie & Victoria are given little to do in this adventure not even appearing in episode 4(They were both on holiday).
3)Still 97 episodes are missing from the BBC archive's.

Review.
Friday 11th October Midnight; The inner Whovian within me leapt up for joy at the News that 9 episodes were confirmed as recovered as to lost second Doctor adventures Enemy Of The World & The Web Of Fear.

Although I'd heard rumours that these two storys had been found on different forum sites all day i was still not 100% sure this was actually true.

So until now Episodes 12456 of this episode were missing believed lost forever.
The BBC did retained episode 3 of this story as with the other recovery of episodes The Web Of Fears episodes 2456, BBC retains episode 1 but episode 3 is still missing.

This wasn't deemed great on it's original broadcast due to its no bug eyed monsters or interplanetary Alien attacks as instead this story substitutes Alien invasion for great written character drama.

I am over the moon and far away right now..... I drove home on Friday morning from Swindon to Nottingham on the first cold and windy night after summers end my mind set on another start to a long winter about to begin! Listening to BBC Radio 2 it's about 06:00 and i'm feeling sorry for myself 'cause I'm coming down with some sort of virus, the news bellows out and I turn the radio down a little! Then I hear 'Doctor Who' 'missing episodes' '11 recovered' '9 missing for 45 years'. Ears pricked up along with the sound!
Listen, I'm 50 years old.... I work on the Railway, mostly outside on construction at night! Nothing really surprises me anymore!
OH MY WORD I was so excited I had to pull into the services. My mind began to race I had to get off the M5 fast and take in what I was hearing! I pulled myself together with a large cup of sweet tea, a bagel ( with Philadelphia ) and some porridge oats! At this point I was still taking it in! 'The Web of Fear' FOUND!!!! 'The Enemy of the World' FOUND!!!!! One discovery is something but two? Who is this 'Philip Morris' ? who does he think he is turning my life on it's head with new found hope? 97 to go kid!!!!
I got home at 08:50 and by 09:00 I was watching 'The Enemy of the World' then, The Web of Fear! Guy's I am in 7th heaven! The cool thing is; I work in tunnels on the railway and it was amazing watching 'Web of Fear' taking place in the London Underground! The atmosphere and the claustrophobic setting was perfect and far better than I imagined it was going to be! The acting in both stories was above average and 'Web' brilliant in Black and White.
