Article of the minute

Film can containing the recovered second episode of The Evil of the Daleks

Missing episodes are those televised episodes of Doctor Who which no longer exist in their entirety. They are a phenomenon of the early days of television broadcast in the United Kingdom, when the price of the recording medium itself made it prohibitively expensive to retain recorded episodes of shows that were very unilikely to see re-transmission. Because contracts in the 1960s and early 1970s were written in such a way that future use was essentially inconceivable, many episodes of Doctor Who — and many other shows — were simply taped over. Technically, all 1960s episodes, and a number of Pertwee episodes are missing in that their original masters were intentionally wiped or outright junked by the BBC. However, thanks to the practice of making 16mm telerecordings of the masters for overseas sales, many 1960s episodes were in fact retained as film prints. Although most William Hartnell episodes do exist, the majority of Patrick Troughton stories do not, due largely to the fact that Second Doctor stories did not sell as broadly worldwide as his predecessor's.

Quote of the minute

River Song: Everyone knows that everybody dies. But not everyday. Not today. Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all. Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair and the Doctor comes to call, everybody lives.

Popular categories

If you're new to wikis, it might be helpful for you to take note of the concept of categories. Categories are the principal organizing tool on a wiki, allowing users to group information in ways that can ease the discovery of information. All the pages on our wiki are found, ultimately, in just four big "super categories". If this is your first visit here, please go to Floor 500 for a discussion of the way our wiki is organized.

Real world
On our wiki, the world we actually live in is called the "real world" . As such, information about the production of Doctor Who and her sister shows are in this category. This includes pages about the actual televised episodes themselves, the behind-the-scenes personnel, terminology used by the production teams, and merchandise related to the shows.
Time-Space Visualiser
The Time-Space Visualiser is the place where most of this wiki's pages reside. All the articles are written from an in-universe perspective, quite different to what you might be used to on Wikipedia. Here you'll find information related to The Doctor, his companions, Other individuals, astronomical objects, time travel, species, locations, science, culture, and a whole host of other subjects.
Non-DWU material
Notwithstanding writer Paul Cornell's famous comments that denounced the concept of "canon" in Doctor Who, our canon policy does deem a few things to be outside the Doctor Who universe. For examples, visit: stories, characters, technology, species, and locations.
The Hub
This category contains articles having to do with the actual running of the wiki. It's full of all those little pages that help the wiki work. As such, it isn't accessed often by most users. However, more advanced editors might wish to peruse the templates category for ways to make their editing easier. Or if you're looking for a place to start editing on the wiki, you might want to look at articles that need updating, major expansion, general copy-editing, sectional cleanup, and re-writing from an in-universe perspective.
