Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 2nd October 1998:
Maine Public Television (channels 10, 10, 12, 13, 26, 39) starts off its new run of Doctor Who with episodes 1 and 2 of Robot, Tom Baker's inaugural story. It's a great story to introduce viewers (just mention he has the ability to change his body and personality and leave the explanations at that). The newly regenerated Doctor is called upon to examine a series of bizarre thefts. The stolen materials and information could allow someone to build a devastating weapon. Tune in Saturday night at 9PM. This network of stations can also be seen in New Brunswick, Canada and New Hampshire.
