KTEH 54 San Jose, CA

Isn't it amazing how coincidences like these can happen? The only Who station in California airs the story with Jean Marsh's final Doctor Who appearance, just 6 days before The Lion, the lost episode of The Crusade with Jean Marsh's first Doctor Who appearance, premieres in the US at Gallifrey 1999. This story also features Nicholas Courtney's return as The Brigadier as the 7thDoctor and UNIT battle knights from another dimension who have come to retrieve Arthur. It even features the return of a certain yellow roadster that fans of the 3rd Doctor might recognize. 4 episodes of must-see-Who this Sunday night.
