Saturday at 10:30PM PDT The Keeper of Traken movie version
For millenia, the Traken Union has been one of the most peaceful places in space. One Trakenite sacrifices his own existence to be the keeper of a machine that keeps evil away. The current Keeper knows his life is ending, and has discovered a surprise threat growing on Traken. So, he has found a character with a brilliant ability to smell out and deal with evil. This character travels in a Police Telephone Box and wears a very long scarf.
