Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 28th August 1998:
MPT Maryland returns to the Hartnell episodes after a 2 week break. This time it's "The Survivors", episode 2 of The Daleks. When last we left this story, a plunger was menacing Barbara. We all know what that plunger was connected to, but when this episode aired, it shocked England, and turned a little known Saturday program into a sensation. It's the pivotal episode in Doctor Who history, and MPT viewers get to see it. See the notice earlier in the column regarding next week's Doctor Who.
