Season 11, Episodes 21 through 26. Doctor: Jon Pertwee.
The final Jon Pertwee story. A wild, wooly epic. Car chases, fear facing, an old friend turned enemy turned friend. A surprise visitor that we've heard about for some time. A message from Jo. The end of an era. May start late due to Greatful Dead pledge concert.
3 December (12:30AM) The Tomb of the Cybermen - 4th cycle through the Troughton/Pertwee stories in a row, since the contract's still running but BBC Worldwide Americas isn't letting the station get more stories. Time approximate after Fawlty Towers pledge special.
