Friday and Saturday at Midnight The Mind Robber movie version
The 2nd Doctor, Jamie, and Zoe try to escape a lava flow (see The Dominators). Their efforts take them out of time and into a realm of unreality. Surely nothing can hurt them outside reality. What could possibly be there? The 5 shortest regular episodes ever. Compiled into a movie, it runs about 95 minutes.
