The second of two previously-missing Patrick Troughton stories to be recovered and returned to the BBC in 2013 by episode hunter Philip Morris, director Douglas Camfield's classic The Web of Fear was restored by the team before an initial online release via iTunes. The unfortunately still missing third episode was covered by a telesnap reconstruction over the off-air soundtrack. The team had no further input to the story's DVD release.
Information about the background to this restoration can be found in the article on The Enemy of the World.
