Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 11th September 1998:
WFWA 39 in Fort Wayne, Indiana continues its journey through Season 17 late Saturday night at Midnight. In The Creature from the Pit, the 4th Doctor arrives on a plant-filled planet after hearing a distress call. The call seems to be coming from a giant egg! Tom Baker puts on an admirable performance in one of the least regarded Doctor Who stories of all time. I'd advise watching or taping it. Movie format.
