A ‘Web of Fear?’ BBC Digital strategy and those missing Doctor Who episodes

ConsoleMy October column for Mediatel’s Newsline coincided with momentous news – the return of two Doctor Who stories that were wiped by the BBC in the early 1970s.

Whilst the fan in me is jubilant at their near miraculous return,  this article looks at the wider implications – how did they come to be destroyed?  As they return in an era in which TV content is far more valued, how is the BBC best placed to make the most of them from a commercial perspective? You can read it here. Also recommended are these lovely Radio Times movie posters for the stories.
