Whatever the situation, it is certainly the start of a golden era for fans. Sure, in 2005 Doctor Who came back in a new form and that has taken on a whole new life, but to finally see much more of the beginnings of the series has to be an interest to fans.
We now wait. Online forums are silenced and believers in MEW and skeptics alike await word from the BBC. Will we know it all or only a tiny bit? The story behind the find is probably just as exciting as sitting down and watching The Enemy of the World for the first time (well, maybe not..)
Whatever the outcome, let us be grateful of what we have as Doctor Who fans. If we are watching Web of Fear one day and Day of the Doctor the next, the 50th anniversary will be a truly magical time.
The announcement is slated for Thursday, possibly 9am London of two stories to be released online.
