Solon the scientist, ignored and forgotten by the rest of the civilized universe, works feverishly to try to find pledge supporters to keep Who on in Pittsburgh, er, a head for Morbius.

ยป It seems likely that The Tomb of the Cybermen: Episode 4 was broadcast rather than The Brain of Morbius: Part Two was broadcast, fitting with the channel pattern.
