Broadcast notes:

Actually broadcast a little earlier as immediately followed the previous episode with no gap between.
This was listed as The Brain of Morbius: Part Two by TWIDW, but is more likely to have been the concluding part of Tomb.

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.
