Doctor Who – Complete Episode List Including Missing Episodes

Doctor Who is the World’s Longest Running science fiction program. It’s also one of the longest-running scripted dramas in the world. But, at some point in the series’s history, the BBC decided to clear out space in their vaults, and many older programs, including Doctor Who were junked or destroyed.  Within a few years the BBC realized their mistake, and began a world-wide search for older, missing, stories. The recovery of “The Web of Fear” and “Enemy of the World” was well-publicized. However, some stories from the Hartnell and Troughton Eras are still missing.  This table lists all Doctor Who stories in original air order, with the missing episodes noted.  Of special note, “The Underwater Menace” was at one point scheduled for release, with the still-missing episodes to be restored using animation and the original sound track. That rumored (aided by a “coming soon” notation on Amazon dot com) release still has not appeared. Stories not marked “Missing” are available on DVD, though some may be out of print.  For more information on the efforts to restore Doctor Who, go to the Doctor Who Restoration Team website. For a fun music video of every Doctor Who Story, See Babelcolour‘s videos on youTube. Direct link to the 50th Anniversary Edition.

And for more information on Classic Doctor Who in book form, the two most useful factual books are:

The Doctor Who Programme Guide by Jean-Marc Lofficier (4th Edition also by Randy Lofficier, Mystery Writers of America Presents an imprint of iUniverse, Inc. 2003; original versions published by W.H. Allen & Co. PLC and Virgin Publishing, Ltd.)

and

Classic Doctor Who DVD Compendium Every Disc, Every Episode, Every Extra compiled by Paul Smith, Wonderful Books, London, 2014.

Both are extremely useful and highly recommended as reference books.

Doctor Who Episode List Full vs. Episodes on DVD

I now have all of Doctor Who on DVD.  Believe me it was quite an accomplishment – it took me at least five years, and maybe closer to ten to collect the entire series.  I have all of them in NTSC/Region 1 (US & Canada) versions, because I want to see more Doctor Who and British television in general available on this side of the pond.  However, because people keep asking me this, and with the 50th Anniversary having just occurred I am going to post two lists:  one is a full list of Doctor Who stories, with the stories that are currently missing noted.  The other is a list of episodes available on DVD to be posted later. (UPDATE:  For the full list of DVDs see Doctor Who Master Post on this blog.)  Finally, in separate posts, I’ll post a list of my personal favorite and recommended episodes for each Doctor in the Classic series (for the new series, buy the series sets).  This is yet to happen, but it gives me another blog post idea!  Needless to say, “best” is subjective in Doctor Who – so you may not agree.  But first the factual lists.

Information for this post was provided by Jean-Marc Lofficier’s “Doctor Who – The Programme Guide”, I have a much-loved first edition, and it still sits on the hutch above my desk.  For the Doctor Who fan this is an invaluable book.  Buy one.  Note:  There is an updated version available that covers the Classic Series only.

PS:  Much to my annoyance, my nice spreadsheet did not translate, I will attempt to fix.
