Accordingly to Deborah Watling’s official website both she and Frazer Hines will be helping to launch the newly recovered Doctor Who episodes this Thursday between 3.30 and 7.00 p.m. No details have been provided of the location for the press conference/screening. Watling’s intended appearance might suggest that the rumours concerning the return of The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear may indeed be true.
Watling played the Second Doctor’s companion Victoria Waterfield from the Season 4 finale, The Evil of the Daleks in May 1967 until the penultimate Season 5 story, Fury From the Deep, in April 1968.
Hines was the Doctor’s companion Jamie, a Highland Scot from 1746 Culloden. Hines appeared from Patrick Troughton’s second adventure, The Highlanders in December 1966 until his final story, The War Games, in June 1969. Hines reprised his role of Jamie in the 1983 special The Five Doctors and again in the Season 22 story The Two Doctors. Appearing in 116 episodes of Doctor Who, Hines holds the record for the companion with the most Doctor Who episode appearances.
