Greg: So did you hear that they found a bunch of missing Doctor Who episodes in Ethiopia?
Dave: Yeah, the story’s been popping up online all week. Do you know which ones?

Greg: No, that’s the weird thing... they say they found “a lot” of them, and some sites were even reporting that they’d found 106 of them... which would mean ALL of the missing episodes. But then apparently a source at the BBC is saying “fewer than 100”, and they said they would announce the number at a press conference “later this week”.

Greg: I don’t really get the reason for being cagey about the number of episodes that were found. I can’t think of a single scenario in which the public knowing how many episodes were found impacts the BBC in any tangible way.

Dave: Well, maybe they want to keep the number secret so they can only release a few every now and again in a nefarious plot to gain media exposure as often as they like.
Greg: ...Okay, so one scenario, then.
