I have not yet seen yesterday's episode of New Who as I'm on holiday. From what I've read it will be interesting to see how Moffat will close out his version of Who. When I hinted that there may be hidden clues I was jesting, having fun. I think one reason this forum's moderators get annoyed with rumours is because often they are based on false assumptions. I strongly suspect that the current production crew no nothing of Phil Morris's efforts and so could not lace episodes with "clues". But if I'm wrong, what if they will announce Capaldi's replacement with THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! It has been hinted that this time things will different and Capaldi's will regenerate into David Tennant...... What if...? Rumours are dangerous!
Inside The Spaceship is probably the place for this discussion.

The trouble, of course, is that there has been absolutely no new leads from any source, anywhere, for months. Hence the procession of threads that have virtually nothing to do with actually attempting to locate missing episodes. If there's nothing worth posting, there's nothing worth posting.
There is an old saying no news is good news. Personally I would rather see no posts in this forum than some nonsense about sock drawers or knocking on strangers doors asking if they have any lost William Hartnell episodes. It may however be the case that in time the moderators might consider whether there is any longer a requirement for a Doctor Who section on this board. Presumably when the site began the Who threads would have been in the general section before being allocated their own forum due to the large interest. The obvious danger in merging the two forums would be that it may again be dominated by Doctor Who threads to the consternation of non Who fans. That said I note that the General forum has had no new posts since the 21st......
Inclined to agree. This section of the board is as dead as a doornail, and is only kept going by threads that either present a request for information (The Destruction of Time and Wiped! invariably supplying the answers to whichever question is asked), or else do not fall under the remit of this section of the board. Archiving the section and/or creating a sort of 'missing episodes clearinghouse' page for those new to the subject may well present a more effective, and certainly less crusty-looking, facet of the search to the casual visitor to the site than a DW missing episodes section that is increasingly not about looking for missing episodes.
