Oh, trust me. A lot of stories get cancelled, and not just due to industrial action (like Shada). Writers not producing poor scripts, producers making last minute changes... stories being rewritten by other writers... there's plenty of 'lost' stories out there.
For example... [Pulls out his Televison Guide] ...The Ark in Space was originally written by John Lucarotti, but as it was felt to be unsuited to the then-current style of the show Robert Holmes rewrote a huge amount of it, so much so that the serial is credited to him, not Lucarotti.
Another one is Revenge of the Cybermen, which was originally written by Gerry Davis as Return of the Cybermen. However, Robert Holmes again rewrote it, most notable adding in the Vogans, resulting in a different story.
The story originally commissioned for the spot that would be replaced with Pyramids of Mars was written by Lewis Griefer and involved alien seeds hidden in the British Museum with mummies chasing around the exhibits, before Robert Holmes completely rewrote it.
...I could go on. Plenty of opportunity for Lost Stories, as you see...
