Having aired the newest batch of episodes they had the rights to show, BBC America returns to this 2nd 4th Doctor story. The TARDIS crew land on Space Station Nerva, home to the last survivors of humanity, sleeping away until they receive the revival call. But the wires have been cut, and the humans are long overdue to wake up. Who is sabotaging Nerva, why, and what is that skeleton in the closet over there? Edited to make room for extra commercials. 1 hour.
