This review is from: Doctor Who - The Web of Fear [DVD] (DVD)
I never had the pleasure of seeing this story, before Friday. After buying the iTunes edition in the US, I am ready to see what the DVD has to offer. The story is flawless, creepy, cinematic at times... simply perfect!! Web of Fear and The Enemy of the World is some of the best Doctor Who to ever to grace our tv screens!!
My only complaint with WOF, they really should have taken the time to animate the third episode. I fell asleep during the stills. It's like a slideshow in grammar school. Surely, the DVD will have an animated third episode. It will definitely make it worth buying again!!
Either way, buy this story!! You won't regret it!!

When do you think they had TIME to animate the 3rd episode? These old episodes have only just been found again - I think it was probably enough work to clean them up a bit for the itunes release. Someone has to be commissioned and paid and have time to draw the missing episode - hence, I should think, why it's this one that has the Feb 2014 release date while the Enemy of the World DVD is coming out in November (to coincide with the 50th anniversary?) - and even that would seem to be a pretty fast turn around for a DVD release.

After following the internet rumours I suspect that the BBC has had these,& more,for a lot longer than they are letting on. The rumours that these have been found go back to 2011/12 but then they are just rumours. It does seem funny however that these titles were mentioned along with Marco Polo (which I would not be at all surprised appears on or around 23rd November as if found it is the earliest missing story.)
