The CDs of DEATH!

Alongside the DVD range we have the missing episodes CDs. In the early 90s several stories with missing episodes were released on tape and were HUGE sellers, but vanished without trace after just a few releases. It's possible this may have something to so with a certain story being scheduled for release and then being returned to the BBC archives.....

Late in the 1990s the BBC started releasing missing stories again with narration recorded by one of the companions in the stories. Over several years every story that was missing or partially missing was released on CD making a complete set of Doctor Who available for the first time. The stories available in this format are:

Marco Polo
The Reign of Terror
The Crusade
Galaxy Four
Mission to the Unknown
The Myth Makes
The Dalek Masterplan
The Massacre
The Celestial Toymaker
The Smugglers
The Tenth Planet
The Power of the Daleks
The Highlanders
Underwater Menace
The Moonbase
Macra Terror
Faceless Ones
Evil of the Daleks
Abominable Snowmen
Ice Warriors
Enemy of the World
Web of Fear
Fury from the Deep
Wheel in Space
The Invasion
The Space Pirates

Curiously the range continued after they completed the stories that were missing:

Space Museum
The Ark
War Machines
The Tomb of the Cybermen
The Ambassadors of Death
Mind of Evil
Curse of Peladon
Sea Devils
Warriors of the Deep(!)

These stories have all been released despite existing in their entirety. By my reckoning that means all of seasons three, four and five are available on CD.
