Doctor Who Tapestry/Embroidery Part Two

I was going to leave it until next month before featuring more of the tapestry but with today’s news it seemed just right to feature a couple more photos of this massive project.

Exciting news for Doctor Who fans broke today with the announcement that two episodes missing from the BBC archives have been uncovered. Episode 3 of the William Hartnell adventure "Galaxy 4" and Episode 2 of Patrick Troughton's "The Underwater Menace" turned up having been bought by a private collector in the 80s without knowing the importance of what he had found to the world of Doctor Who fandom. Personally I never believed that any more of the missing episodes would show up, so I’m looking forward to a commercial release of these hopefully sometime next year.

Galaxy 4 from 1965 featured the beautiful Drahvins and the hideous Rills and cute robots the Chumblies. Although all was not as it first appeared.  I’ve already featured a Drahvin and a Chumblie on the tapestry seen here alongside some other early enemies, Axons, White Robot, an Ambassador of Death, and the robot disguised as Death from The Visitation.

The Underwater Menace from 1967 featured an adventure in Atlantis with ‘fish people’ which I’ve also added to the tapestry some time ago. Seen here along with a Monoid, the Candyman, Toymaker and Robot, Gell Guard and Silurian.
