It's a double bill of the 7th Doctor this week, as WUFT moves through the 25th anniversary season. First up, the Doctor and Ace visit Terra Alpha, a bizarre world where anyone who is unhappy is killed. Offended by this, the Doctor and Ace start a revolution. Keep an eye out for the Kandyman and the Doctor playing a harmonica. In Silver Nemesis, a 17th Century lady learns how to travel through time and comes to 1988 with two goals. One, gain control of the statue Nemesis, which will give her ultimate power. Two, expose the Doctor's true identity and destroy him.
