Late Friday and Saturday at Midnight The War Games movie version, part 1 of 2
The 2nd Doctor, Jamie, and Zoe land in no-mans-land in the middle of World War I, where they are almost immediately arrested as spies. When they are brought in for their court-martial, they notice that the British commander is acting rather oddly. Things get stranger when they stumble into a Roman Legion. They might not be on Earth after all. About 2 hrs, 2 minutes.
