The BBC's managed to recover nine long-lost episodes of 1960s Doctor Who, (almost) completing two stories – and they're available to download now on iTunes.

The Enemy of the World is a groovy '60s spy adventure jam-packed with hilarious "futuristic" fashions from the far-distant year of 2018, with Patrick Troughton taking on the dual role of Doctor Who and his evil double, Salamander. The Web of Fear, meanwhile, finds the time traveller doing battle with endearingly cuddly robot Yeti as they attack the London Underground.

This radio doesn't offer much in the way of features – it's FM only, and you can forget about DAB or streaming; the only concession to modern tech is the aux in jack for your MP3 player. But it looks gorgeous – designer Philip Wong has stripped the radio back to basics with a transparent casing and brightly coloured components. Stick it in your kitchen, tune in to The Archers and admire it from afar.

Get your geek on with Joss "Avengers Assemble" Whedon's take on Shakespeare. Filmed in just 12 days in the director's own house, Much Ado couldn't be more different from the blockbuster superheroics of his Marvel Studios efforts – it's a small-scale, black-and-white chamber piece that draws on the stable of actors from Whedon's previous TV series.
