Photos From The Celestial Toymaker Discovered

The current issue of Doctor Who Magazine (issue 408) features some never-before-seen photos from missing ’60s story The Celestial Toymaker.

For the latest issue, the long-running magazine’s regular ‘The Fact Of Fiction’ feature looks at the classic William Hartnell adventure –  broadcast in four parts from April 2nd – 23, 1966, and starring a young Michael Gough as the eponymous villain. dwm-408

It includes revealing set-photos and publicity pictures from the serial taken from negatives located in the BBC’s Photo Library a few months ago by regular DWM contributor Derek Handley.

The new images are important as only episode four, ‘The Final Test’, still resides in the BBC archives, though soundtracks to all episodes exist and have been released by the BBC as part of their Radio Collection series. You can buy it here.

Doctor Who Magazine #408 (cover date 27 May, 2009) is available now, priced £3.99.
