Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 2nd October 1998:
WFWA 39 in Fort Wayne, Indiana begins Tom Baker's final season with the movie version of The Leisure Hive Saturday at Midnight. This story is marked by a noticeable jump in the special effects, a revised theme tune, clever visuals, and very short episodes. And there's an interesting story in there too! Enjoy. 80 minutes.
