Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 13th August 1999:
KNME 5 Albuquerque, NM
Sat 11PM MDT The Face of Evil movie (more likely The Robots of Death)
Time approximate after pledge programs. The Doctor lands on a planet where he is revered as a god and feared as the demon holding the god prisoner. Flattering, but very problematic, what with everyone trying to kill him and such. Keep an eye out for the Horta. I believe we now know which planet the Cybermen invaded to create the Cybermats.
