Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 25th September 1998:
WUFT 5 in Gainesville, Florida will show the movie version of Time-Flight at 5PM Saturday. Suffering the aftereffects of Earthshock, the TARDIS crew finally make it to Heathrow airport, where Tegan had wanted to go. But Concordes are disappearing, and before you can say "Beware of the Kalid!", the 5th Doctor finds himself getting involved in a terrifying time-travel trip. This story took the unusual approach of letting a number of theoretically dead characters get involved at various points, with at least one of them not being dead. Most reviewers forget this to complain about the special effects and the plot, but it's worth remembering this aspect and watching to see how they do it.
