Following the release of the two newly recovered Doctor Who serials on iTunes earlier today, The Enemy of the World is currently charting at number one in the Australian iTunes Top TV Seasons List.  The Web of Fear is holding down the second place in front of three seasons of Breaking Bad. Who’d ever have imagined that 45 year old black and white Doctor Who serials would be the hottest sellers on iTunes!

To give viewers a taste of what to expect from the two serials the BBC has released a trailer for each, together with five other short clips.  Earlier today The Doctor Who Mind Robber posted the trailers and we now provide for your viewing pleasure two of these clips, one each from The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear.

  1. Thanks for keeping us posted with all the cool news & clips. It hasn’t been this exciting to be an ‘old-school’ Who fan since 1992 😉

    • Thanks Perry. I’m certainly very excited as well. I watched The Web of Fear last night and it was absolutely fabulous. I only watched Loose Cannon’s reconstruction of it a month or so back and what it showed me more than anything else is what an amazing job those guys do. I really felt like I’d actually seen all of the episodes before – that’s how accurate they are! Unfortunately their recons for both of the recovered episodes have now been pulled from YouTube. I honestly would love to see an episode again and compare it with the moving pictures.

    • Personally, I hope it isn’t animated by the guys who did ‘The Ice Warriors’ DVD. The animation in that reminds me – way – too much of ‘The Whistling Song / Young Folks’ music video.

      • It will certainly be interesting to see if it’s animated. I actually liked The Ice Warrior’s one as it was very reminiscent of Cosgrove Hall’s animation for The Invasion. I didn’t think much of The Reign of Terror ones.
