Did You Know?


The Crusade, along with many others, was originally destroyed by the BBC. In 1978, when the Film and TV Library in the UK was audited, The Wheel of Fortune (Episode 3) was recovered, but, unfortunately, the other three episodes were not. However, in 1999, The Lion (Episode 1) was returned to the BBC archives by a private film collector who had purchased the episode in New Zealand. See more »

New/Old Doctor Who
28 December 2000 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This is a combined video release of "The Crusade" and "The Space Museum" episodes of Doctor Who. In a total departure from previous "Missing Episode" releases where former Doctor Who stars just played themselves, William Russell actually plays Ian Chesterton, filling in the gaps for the missing two episodes from "The Crusade". It's a nice, nostalgic touch.

The episodes themselves are very good. Even "The Space Museum" which has a bad rep amongst some fans of the show.

Doctor Who fans should love it.
