Hacker: You said you'd heard this rumour, I said is it true, you said yes! Bernard: I said yes, it was true that it was a rumour. Hacker: You said you heard it was true! Bernard: No, I said it was true that I heard it!
Didn’t Phil Morris claim he was going to ‘name and shame’ the enigmatic individual he believed was in possession of Web 3 a while back or did I just imagine/misremember that?!
Regardless, if there was ever any truth to Web 3 getting sensationally smuggled out of Nigeria at the behest of some Blofeld type film collector then this announcement is hardly confirmation that the episode is irrevocably lost. Indeed, given that this will now be the third time the Beeb have milked Web’ they’ll hardly have any qualms doing so a fourth time in the event that the elusive episode 3 turns up!
Go on then Beeb, take my money. Again.
Addendum: ....or possibly not! Just watched the trailer and I’m not liking that CGI-augmented, disconcertingly smooth motion one bit. If that’s representative of the complete animated episode then I may not bother after all.
The Patrick Troughton animation looks like it's trying to be the more contemporary Matt Smith's Doctor who himself loosely based his portrayal on Patrick Troughton!
