Fan-Made Recreation of Missing ‘Doctor Who’ Episode to Premiere on the BBC

BBC Studios will be airing the lost Doctor Who episode “Mission to the Unknown” next week in its latest attempt to recover missing Doctor Who media.

But the episode that’s airing is completely fan-made.

Announced by Doctorwho.tv, this production of ‘Mission to the Unknown‘ was recreated by a team of students and staff of the University of Central Lancashire.
