Late Friday at Midnight (no Saturday rerun!!!) Frontier In Space movie version
The 3rd Doctor and Jo land in the middle of a dispute between Earth and Draconia that threatens to escalate into a catastrophic war. Ships from both sides are being raided, and each side thinks the other is responsible. Before you can say "that hypnotizer makes a terrible racket", both sides think the Doctor and Jo are helping the other side. No allies, no TARDIS. The Ogrons return in this story, as do 2 old enemies of the Doctor.
