I've just checked my hard drive, and it appears I don't have The Web of Fear for some reason. Probably because I was so excited about it being found three years ago. :) Nor do I have The Wheel in Space. However, I *do* have The Moonbase by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, the first Cybermen sequel from 1967. Half of the serial survives in the archives, but here's the camera scripts for Episodes One to Four.
Wow! So grateful. What a haul! Thank you stephenharris. I suppose it's a long shot to ask if you still have your original script for Pyramids of Mars by any chance? ;)

Failing that, you wouldn't happen to have Fury from the Deep on your hard drive (another horrifying one)? And speaking of missing episodes that were found, do you have Enemy of the World? I'd love to see whether Troughton's legendary Mexican accent was specified in the action.

Thanks to all who have posted up scripts so far - major Doctor Who fan :)
Just thought I'd contribute two scripts I have that no one else has posted up yet. First one is the script for the first episode of AUC that I've had for a while (It says No.1/Pilot but I'm not sure whether it is the pilot script or the broadcast episode script) and the second one is a scan of a proposed 90's Doctor Who Movie Script by Johnny Byrne that I found some time ago. It's quite...unusual, to say the least. Especially the opening few pages.

Hate to say it, but I already posted An Unearthly Child earlier in the thread and Johnny Byrne's movie script has already been posted too. Oh well, no real harm done.

Oops :3 - Has anyone put scans of any of the Titan Scriptbooks up on here at all? If not, I've got a few of them I can upload.

Here's the one I know everyone's been waiting for: the camera scripts for Geoffrey Orme's 1967 serial The Underwater Menace. :)
Y'know, funnily enough I was actually going to ask if you had this one. I know Underwater Menace is a famously crap story, but I have a soft spot for it - I like the Atlantis setting and Professor Zaroff is wonderfully over the top so I'm rather pleased this has shown up :)

Also, yay! You're back!

Thanks, dude. Good to be back.

I've quite a soft spot for TUM myself. When episode 2 was recovered I found it endlessly fascinating to realise how much of the performances, direction, set design, etc we'd been missing by experiencing the story as mostly audio up till then. Troughton in particular does so much with his body - it's not a radio performance at all, and that's the great tragedy of what happened to his work on Doctor Who.

Anyway, for those who want to see how Fraser Hines was introduced to the show, here's Gerry Davis' camera scripts for The Highlanders. All four episodes are completely missing from the archives, and indeed were the first casualties of the wiping program as far as Doctor Who was concerned, destroyed with an almost indecent haste after their first broadcast in 1967.

Yay! More scripts! :)

So, uh, is this an implied "I don't have them" to my requests at the top of the page? No problem if it is - I still have lots of reading to do.

You don't have the rest of this do you? Where did you get this one?
Afraid not - one of my friends was given a few years back. According to him, John Nathan Turner had kept a full set of archive scripts as the BBC were going to throw them away once the show was cancelled in 1989. They were then kept by him until his passing at which point, his partner Gary Downie took ownership of them. Once he passed away, they were all passed onto a family friend, who gave away some and auctioned the rest.
