Lost Doctor Who Episodes Come to iTunes

| Cool Stuff Found

Two recently recovered story lines from the wildly popular Doctor Who TV series were released on the iTunes Store on Thursday, making them available for the first time in 45 years. The story arcs, "The Enemy of the World," and "The Web of Fear," both feature Patrick Troughton as The Doctor. "The Enemy of the World" let Troughton play both The Doctor and the story's villian, and "The Web of Fear" gave us the first appearance of Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart -- a character that later became a regular on the series. Completely recovering both stories was a special find since so many of the early Doctor Who episodes were presumed lost thanks the BBC's practice of reusing the video tapes all of its shows were recorded on. "The Enemy of the World" and "The Web of Fear" are priced at US$9.99 each.

I just recently fell down the Dr. Who rabbit hole myself, starting with the reboot episode Rose. Will definitely look forward to some vintage watching as well.
