Description

From my Doctor Who concept album I Am The Doctor available on CD here: http://thefump.com/store_release.php?id=124 or on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/i-am-the-doctor/id822076098 When Doctor Who first started the show was a huge success and the BBC made their money by, among other things, licensing the show to other stations around the world. Once the show aired there was no other foreseeable way for them to make money with it, so they discarded it. The video tape used to record the show was reused to record new shows. Then home video became a thing and the BBC went "Oh crap." Since then they have been trying desperately to get back all the episodes that are still missing, 97 in all at the time of this recording. "Lost in Time" is the second song from my Doctor Who concept album I Am The Doctor. I dedicated my Patrick Troughton song to this topic because he was the Doctor most affected by this policy, which sucks because he was awesome as The Doctor. And in fact for a long time there were no complete stories available anywhere that featured the companion Victoria. The bit about me meeting Deborah Watling at a con is true. (There are now two available.) 26 Doctor Who stories are either missing or incomplete. All of them are mentioned by name in the lyrics of this song. The Doctor: Stephen Allen Zoe: Angela Pritchett Video edited by Seriah Azkath Lyrics: We know "The Dalek's Master Plan" but can They destroy the Doctor faster than the BBC Can? 'Cause "The Faceless Ones" at the top Decided to erase all the tapes and clean shop "The Macra Terror" was no match for "The Fury From The Deep" recesses of the BBC Who decided to reuse the tapes at a staggering Pace, revolving 'round like a "Wheel In Space" "The Invasion" on the archives was a pity, oh To me it feels like they erased my wedding video Now I'm gripped in a "Web Of Fear" that they may never Reappear, and I'll have missed Deborah Watlings career Now fanboys are on "The Crusade" to try to find 'em And they won't stop till every story is behind 'em It's like they're returning crown jewels to the throne It's a "Mission To The Unknown" Lost in time "I met Deborah Watling at a con once..." Lost in time "...before I had ever seen a single episode with Victoria..." Lost in time "...Talk about awkward dinner conversation." Lost in time "The Savages" at the BBC didn't want us To see what their team of "Myth Makers" had undertaken They were mistaken, the episodes were Forsaken, and their "Reign of Terror" was unshaken Now it's up to "The Smugglers" to try and bring 'em Back and complete the collection in my rack I need to fill in the gaps for my favorite show But they could be on a "Moonbase" for all we know Will they ever again be shown man? I don't know man They're harder to find than "The Abominable Snowman" Hopefully we may see 'em all once more In the future while I play Mario "Galaxy 4" "The Highlanders" fought a whole war in their kilts I wanna know, how'd they do that on a family show? And I like the way Patrick Troughton frolics when he faces "The Evil of the Daleks" Lost in time "Marco! Polo!" Lost in time "Marco! Polo!" Lost in time "I'm sorry, I can't find you guys anywhere. I give up." Lost in time Now the show is a hit, so what are we gonna do with it? Throw it away! Right away, when we're through with it Nothing else to do since the show is no longer new Throw it away! And The Avengers too It's a popular show but now the episodes have to go Throw it away! 'Cause the future doesn't need to know "OK, maybe this was a mistake. If you happen to find an old Doctor Who episode please return it to the BBC. Our bad." Every Christmas I ask "The Celestial Toymaker" Can you blame me? For new episodes with Zoe and Jamie, I keep hoping "The Space Pirates" will bring 'em all Back so I can see "The Underwater Menace" attack The wiping of the tapes was worse than "The Massacre Of St. Bartholemew's Eve" and I'm cursing That it has occurred, and even "Th...
