Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 4th September 1998:
IPTV Iowa presents one of the biggest turning points in the Doctor Who series Friday night at 11:05PM. First, it's the conclusion to The War Games, the final 2nd Doctor story. The Time Lords have stopped the games, but they're now after the Doctor as well. And there are some things even the Doctor can't escape. Then, at 11:30PM, episode 1 of Spearhead From Space airs. The first color episode, with an entirely different cast, deals with the aftermath of the Doctor's trial and shows a new direction for the series. Jon Pertwee plays the 3rd Doctor, with Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and Caroline John as Liz Shaw.
