Maybe those Doctor Who missing episodes rumors are true after all?

Spotted on and reposted via their site…

Holy crap. The rumor that a startling 90 episodes of lost Doctor Who material had been recovered seemed too good to be true. So we weren’t entirely surprised when it was shot down. But now, the world’s biggest expert on missing episodes is saying it’s true after all. Could our dreams be real?

A bit of background here. Ian Levine is the reason we have many of the earliest Doctor Who stories intact, years after the BBC destroyed a lot of their old recordings. He personally rescued the tapes of "The Daleks" from being incinerated. And he was one of the loudest voices denouncing the "90 missing Doctor Who episodes recovered" rumor as a hoax. But now, he’s just taken to Twitter, claiming he’s seen proof and it’s all true.

These recovered episodes, according to Bleeding Cool, include everything that was missing, except "nine episodes of The Dalek Master Plan, plus Mission To The Unknown, two episodes of The Invasion, two episodes of The Ice Warriors, and two episodes of The Wheel In Space."

Here’s what Ian Levine just tweeted:

I guess the question is whether A) Ian Levine’s Twitter might have been hacked, and B) he’s actually seen the episodes in question. Or just the film cans. In any case, he now says he’s been "given proof" that the mysterious person in question found tons of film cans in 2011 and has been back since, finding more stuff. So, ummm… maybe time to put away some of those grains of salt again?

Update: Bleeding Cool has some more details on the three tons of film that Levine is apparently talking about. [Thanks Mark Abernathy!]
