Support #AnimateCrusade for an Animated Restoration!

A Facebook page has been created to rally support for animating the two missing episodes from the First Doctor serial, The Crusade.


We’ve written often about the controversy surrounding the alleged finding of long lost Doctor Who episodes, so it will no doubt always be of interest any time an effort to restore what has been lost comes about.

The second season serial found the First Doctor and his companions in Palestine during the Third Crusade. The Facebook page, at the time of writing, has 358 likes and the page creator is trying to get enough likes to obtain attention from the BBC.

Along with animated versions of The Reign of Terror and The Invasion, an animated version of the final episode in Hartnell’s last outing as the Doctor was commissioned for the DVD release of The Tenth Planet. The group’s goal is to get similar treatment for The Crusade.

If you want to help champion the cause, you can join them on Facebook and on Twitter @AnimateCrusade.


“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.
