By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
This is a second edition update by author Richard Molesworth who has phenomenally researched this book in great detail leaving no stone left unturned about why Doctor Who currently has 106 missing episode's (It's 97 episodes now as this book was released before the actual confirmation of 9 newly discovered missing episode's).

This is a very enjoyable read & should appeal more to hardcore Doctor Who fan's who know a little about the junking of these story's in the 60's & early 70's with the continuing search of attempting to recover any missing Doctor Who material.

The BBC recorded several copies of these missing episodes for overseas broadcast & distribution but the possible wereabouts if any of these missing adventures featuring the First & Second Doctor's is an on going mystery & the author's attention to detail about the actual recovery or red herring rumours of these missing episodes is exhausting.

This book will obviously get a third edition as in October there were 9 episodes recovered thanks to Phillip Morris & his researchers of two Patrick Troughton Second Doctor adventures Enemy Of The World episode 1,2,4,5,6 as the BBC had episode 3 in there archives & The Web Of Fear 2,4,5,6 again BBC retained episode 1 in there archives yet episode 3 still remains missing & was included on the dvd release using the audio soundtrack & telesnaps.

With rumours persist of a possible recovery of a First Doctor story Marco Polo from the shows first season these rumours & searches will no doubt continue.

This is a excellent read as I found the book a superb historic read about why the BBC junked many of these episode's & some of the strange locations were several episode's have actually been recovered.

Only 97 more episodes to find, Wiped Doctor Whos Missing Episodes is an insightful & excellently researched book & is Well worth a purchase if your a Doctor Who fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb book, meticulously researched 14 May 2013
By Simon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Partway through reading this excellent book and already I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to better understand the hows and whys behind the fact that 106 episodes of 1960s Doctor Who are sadly no longer in existence. This book leaves no stone unturned in examining the policies and practises of the BBC at the time and is the most comprehensive account of it's type. The author guides you through in great detail how the programme was made (fascinating in itself) and what then happened to all of the original tapes and their copies. This book helps to bring alive the old B&W stories from the 60s and finally gives the best account of the fate of each and every episode. It does get quite technical in places with regard to some of the different recording processes employed but I was still able to follow what was going on. Overall, 100% recommended and a great addition to a serious Who fan's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Publication. 4 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just received this paperback 576 page book this morning. It is an excellent publication, dealing with episodes, history of episodes, where the missing episodes have turned up, and the prognosis of more being found. In short, it is an excellent publication, the latest updated version, and one which all Dr Who fans,( particularly those of the first 7 Doctors), should read. Anyone with an interest in the history of the missing episodes, and or just for reference should add this to their bookshelf. The price is a steal!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wiped! Updated Edition lays it on the line 23 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Any Doctor Who fan that really wants to know what happened should read this rather than spread rumors. The BBC knows more than any entity what they have lost by not saving more television shows for syndication.

What is also apparent is that missing episodes may only reappear from now on with luck and diligence. I think that most of what can be done from a central location like BBC has been done. Widely dispersed fans in the field with some knowledge of film archiving, and a related real world job that gives them access, would have the most chance. It's legwork, not internet traffic at this point.
