Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 25th September 1998:
LPB (Louisiana Public Broadcasting) presents episodes 1 and 2 of The Mutants this Saturday night at 10PM. The Time Lords interrupt the 3rd Doctor's exile yet again to send him on a little mission. Considering the outcome, you'd think they'd choose a Time Lord who was less likely to attract attention. This story reputedly has the same title as the original Dalek story (sloppy producers), so that story is called The Daleks or "The Dead Planet" to avoid confusion.
