Well, Ian Levine's been saying they're real since the shipping manifesto showed up in June; prior to that he was saying everybody was full of shit.

I don't think it's a stretch at this point to think some episodes have probably been found.  But 106 is a fuck of a lot.

Radio Times is a real news outlet, right?

Because they're saying there's official confirmation of two recovered Troughton episodes, which will go on sale digitally this week.

The Mirror says there are more to come and the BBC has called a press conference for Tuesday.

2 serials, actually, not just 2 episodes.

9 episodes, all told (well, 11, but 2 of them had already been recovered): the entirety of The Enemy of the World, and all but 1 episode of The Web of Fear.  Apparently all of them are on iTunes now (haven't checked, don't use iTunes), and they'll be out on DVD in the coming months.

And yes they WERE from that shipment to Phillip Morris.  Be careful with words like "debunked" -- just because somebody denies something doesn't mean it's been debunked.

Anyway!  9 is rather a lot and something to be pretty thrilled about.  Could there be more?  I wouldn't rule it out but I wouldn't expect it either.  (What I think we can say for sure: they definitely did not recover Web of Fear Part 3; otherwise they would have released it with the rest.  Wouldn't be surprised if they animated it for the DVD release, but for now it's available as audio with stills.)

Wonder if Moffat knew about this when he decided to bring the Great Intelligence back.  Could be a coincidence, but on the other hand it would explain a lot.

Next Saturday I'm going to a Classic Who con with 5, 6, & 8. Martha, the Sontarans, and the Daleks will be there too. And a few old companions, I think.

I'm having Peter Davidson sign a cricket bat and McGann sign his movie. Thinking of just having everyone else sign a big poster of something generically Doctor Who and non-Doctor specific. Any suggestions for picture to use or other things to sign?

Also I rewatched An Adventure in Space and Time and holy hells man.

It's a beautiful movie. Even if I didn't like Doctor Who or it was based on a fake TV show or something, I'd say it was a perfectly done movie and tear-jerking.
the fact it was about Doctor Who doesn't matter in the slightest.

I met, talked to, and shook hands with Paul McGann, Peter Davison, and Colin Baker.

Also, I almost stepped on a turtle dressed as Tom Baker.

Probably last of the convention spam:
Peter Davison and Paul McGann are absolute pleasures to talk to. Peter tended to answer things a bit shorter and slightly less personal but was polite and very happy to be talking to people.
Paul was overwhelmed by the people and was constantly bewildered in a very... cute way. Like a puppy. He would just randomly go off on tangents and even introduce you to people like you guys were old friends.
Even Colin Baker was a lot better than the awful things I've heard about him.

But if you guys ever get a chance to see Paul McGann talk, go do it. His stories were fantastic and he was visibly touched that people were so excited to see him.
