The Rani's impersonation of Mel backfires badly because Urak can't tell the difference, while the Doctor attempts to learn the secret of the Loyhargil.

Two stories on the weekend. The Rani kidnaps the 6th Doctor, accidentally triggering a regeneration. She then tries to use the 7th Doctor to repair a machine that could give her control over time itself. In the second story, Dr. Grace Holloway operates on the 7th Doctor, accidentally triggering a regeneration. She then tries to use the 8th Doctor to repair the emptiness of her failed engagement. On Monday, Resistance Is Useless, a quasi-documentary filled with surviving clips of lost episodes, airs instead of The Tenth Planet part 4, a lost episode. The rest of the week goes to The War Games, where a perfectly ordinary World War I slaughter ground may not be as innocent as it seems.
