Friday 10th September 1999:
WYBE 35 Philadelphia, PA
Sat 11PM EDT The Deadly Assassin eps 2+3 of 4
The 4th Doctor is convicted of murdering the President of Gallifrey and is sentenced to die. To escape the sentence, the Doctor runs for President (make sure no politicians see that episode - we wouldn't want them to get any ideas). The end of episode 3 was highly controversial, and is believed to be the reason why the show changed producers shortly afterwards. This ending almost joined the 109 missing episodes shortly afterwards due to an accident.
