Doctor Who: never-before-seen scripts uncovered in Kent 


A cache of never-before-seen Doctor Who scripts, including one for a serial that was replaced by the first Daleks story, have been unearthed in Herne Bay in Kent.
They were discovered by local prop maker Jason Onion, who found them while researching the town’s links with the BBC sci-fi drama.
The scripts were nestled in a box of papers belonging to the late writer and TARDIS creator Anthony Coburn, who used to live in Herne Bay.
Onion said that he wasn’t initially aware of the significance of his find and believed the scripts to be copies of existing Doctor Who screenplays.
“With the consent of Anthony’s wife, Joan Coburn-Moon, and other family members, the family lent me a box of his work and I saw the scripts, but put them to one side,” he told thisiskent.co.uk. “When I scanned the cover later I realised it didn’t have the right title for the first episode.
“I had a look and as soon as I saw the first few pages I knew it was not the episode that had been televised. I just sat there, and stared and stared. I wanted to cover them with glass. They are unbelievably precious, and I had them in my hand.”
The collection includes two versions of Doctor Who’s very first episode, An Unearthly Child, an alternative second episode and another three scripts including a story about the Masters of Luxor, which was replaced by 1963’s The Daleks.

He’s so young here. A petulant teen trapped in an old man’s body. He is raw and rough but so full of life. He can’t get back to Gallifrey just yet, but he knows the orange sky and silver trees are waiting for him. He hasn’t yet suffered the pain of regeneration, where he dies and a new man with dubious fashion sense (it took him centuries to rediscover his love of bowties) goes off in his place. He hasn’t lost companions, or ruined lives, or lost everything in the Time War; he still sees himself as a force of good. He does not yet have the blood of whole species, including his own people, on his hands. He is still so young. So when Barbara and Ian first arrive, all authoritative and knowing what is best for his Susan, he bristles at them (maybe the 20th century wasn’t the best place to send Susan to school, but that pigheaded fool Socrates refused to teach a girl). They are the authority he’s been running away from all his life. Someday he will be an old man in a young man’s body, but not now, not yet, and so he decides to take Ian and Barbara for a little spin, to knock them down a peg, to shake them out of their boring old adult ways. He is so, so young.


This. Is. Perfection.
