KNME 5 Albequerque, NM
Saturday at 11PM MDT Robot movie version

KNME begins airing Doctor Who again with the opening episode of Tom Baker's era. A rash of bizarre military thefts attracts the attention of UNIT. They fall exactly into the area that UNIT's scientific advisor usually handles. But he's just changed his face, lost his mind, and wants to leave the planet. Can their recalcitrant employee, known only as "Doctor", focus his attention long enough to save the day?
