The Underwater Menace Update

The saga of the last DVD in the Library (unless the BBC is hiding more “lost episodes”) continues.

The official BBC Shop unexpectedly posted a new listing for The Underwater Menace on DVD, with a release date of October 26th 2015.

The day after my birthday and I have that day off… 🙂

After the second episode was found back in 2011, the serial became 50% complete, and with fragments of parts one and four in existence, it seemed likely that a DVD release would come. But it never did, and the release was eventually confirmed as cancelled in June. As yet, we don’t know what prompted an apparent change of mind, although we understand that the BBC Shop has been given greater powers, so perhaps the answer lies there…

While we don’t know whether or not the missing episodes will receive an animated or photographic reconstruction, The Underwater Menace starring Patrick Troughton is finally heading to DVD – rejoice!

I just ordered it from Amazon UK:

We’ll see if to comes to pass…
