Whilst the official number is unspecified, these episodes have now been returned back to the BBC after weeks of speculation.

A press conference is also expected to be held later on this week that will report in full on the findings and inform fans on how they can gain access to the episodes.

Some of the Patrick Troughton episodes, of which haven’t been seen since the 1960s, were originally planned to be available for download from iTunes today, but reports confirm that the mentioned press conference later on this week will announce the postponed dates for the episodes’ availability instead.

The total count for lost episodes of Doctor Who during the 1960s is officially 106 out of the 253 that were produced. Their ‘extermination’ came as a result of archive policies during the 1960s and 1970s, but due to further changes, have recently become available once again.

The Radio Times claims: “They are believed to originate from a haul discovered in Africa and have been digitally remastered for sale, although exact details remain sketchy.”

More updates available soon.
