Saturday at 10:30PM - Spearhead In Space - episodes 1 and 2 of 4
WCET switches to episode format with this broadcast. The newly regenerated 3rd Doctor finds himself marooned on Earth just as an alien invasion begins. I guess this means he has to help out. Bummer for him. With pledge drives, the episodes are listed to end at 12:20AM! If that's right, then more time will be spent on pledge drives than episodes.
