Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 14th August 1998:
KTEH 54 in San Jose, California offers fans PRIMETIME Doctor Who this Sunday. First, at 9PM, they offer the special extended version of The Curse of Fenric, the next to last Sylvester McCoy story. This version, originally made for video, adds several minutes and scenes cut for time from the regular version. The video cover boasts that it offers a mysterious new reason for Dr. Judson's behavior. Tune in and be freaked out. Then, at 11:25PM (time approximate), they have scheduled the Peter Davison story Warriors of the Deep to air in episode format. The Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough wind up on a 21st Century seabase under attack from both enemy agents and two old foes at the same time! Will anyone survive? And do you really think it's a good idea to kick-box something that electrifies people on contact? "Warriors" will apparently air pledge free. Finally, at 1:06AM, KTEH finishes its Doctor Who night with something titled "Peter Davison Interview". Pledge calls will be handled by a local Who fan club, The Legion Of Rassilon.
