Sat 9-11AM GMT Attack of the Cybermen movie
An alien distress call brings the TARDIS to Earth in 1985, where an old foe who the Doctor barely met before (Commander Lytton) appears to have teamed up with the Cybermen. The Cybermen want to alter history and destroy the Earth. Something doesn't add up in the equation, and Lytton holds the key to understand what on the Milky Way is going on.
Sun 9:10-11AM GMT Vengeance on Varos movie
The TARDIS runs out of Zeiton-7, a critical mineral that enables it to operate. In search of a replacement supply, the 6th Doctor and Peri stumble across the planet Varos, where the citizens live in constant fear and torture is common, and the leadership lives in constant fear of the citizens. Lots of special effects in this gruesome but gripping installment of the series.
