Doctor Who Classics | The Web Of Fear – February 1968 | AfterBuzz TV AfterShow

AFTERBUZZ TV — Doctor Who edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of BBC’s Doctor Who series. In this episode hosts Zach Wilson, Megan Salinas, Katie Cullen, and Christen Gerhart discuss the Classic Doctor Who Episode “The Web Of Fear – February 1968.” The Web of Fear is the partly missing fifth serial of the fifth season of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, which was first broadcast in six weekly parts from 3 February to 9 March 1968. This serial — which marks the return of the Yeti, the Great Intelligence, and Professor Edward Travers — is the sequel to The Abominable Snowmen. It marks the first appearance of Colonel Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, subsequently better known as the Brigadier, and acts as a precursor to the numerous later serials involving the UNIT organisation. For four decades only episode 1 of the story survived in the BBC archives, the others being presumed lost. Episodes 2, 4, 5, and 6 were recovered from Nigeria in 2013, however, leaving only episode 3 missing.
