What did I miss? (Part One)

It won’t be a surprise to anyone who’s read any of the previous entries in this blog that I am a bit obsessed with the minutiae of Doctor Who missing episodes. This is a project that I’ve begun a few times over the years and have finally decided that enough was enough and this summer it would be finished! Sort of. In a work-in-progress kind of way.

There are 44 episodes of Hartnell Who missing. For 27 of these, there are no telesnaps. So – how many characters or monsters are there for whom we have no visual reference whatsoever? I wanted to find out. So first I made a list of every character who appeared *only* in a missing episode or episodes, and then I tried to find photos of them all – or work out who was who in the photos we have.

Some caveats. I’m only looking at credited cast (and I’ve used Doctor Who: The Television Companion by Howe/Stammers/Walker as my guide, although I have referred to the camera scripts for everything else). I’ve also taken as gospel Jonny Morris’s fantastic telesnap work in the recent DWM Missing Episode specials. And this is a work in progress. Where identities are in doubt my detective work has so far gone no further than trying to match up photos with scripts (in which there are contradictions in some cases) and looking at photos/performances of actors in other shows. Very often, this still resulted in guesswork. Hopefully people with better facial-recognition skills than me will point out errors or confirm guesses.

There are a lot of photos around on the Internet that are reconstructions/photoshopped/coloured etc. For that reason I’m only using photos that have appeared in DWM or other reference books/magazines/photo libraries. If you know of any (genuine) photos that fill in any gaps needless to say I would *love* to hear from you!

(NB All footage referred to below can be found on the DVD ‘Lost in Time’.)
