Broadcast notes:

TWIDW reported this as The Mutants: Episode One; however, with the following week being Frontier In Space: Episode Three and it was back to The Mutants in September so it seems more likely to be Frontier In Space: Episode One.

Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 30th July 1999:
WCET 48 Cincinnati, OH
Sat 11:30PM EDT The Mutants eps 1 and 2 of 6
The Time Lords send the 3rd Doctor on a mission to Solos, a planet under the control of the decaying Earth Empire. Within minutes of arriving, he is pulled into a plot of kidnapping, murder, and political intrigue.

ยป based on future weeks' listings, it seems more likely the episodes were from Frontier In Space instead.
