Mon-Wed The Seeds of Doom eps 1 - 6 of 6

"Miss Smith, we're needed! Alien seed pods were just found in Antarctica, and I think the idiots down there might try to awaken them. We need to pretend to still be working for U.N.I.T, get down there, take the pods, and dispose of these hazards. In case things get rough, remember to practice your kickboxing. What, you don't kickbox? I guess we'll just have to hope that no homicidal botanists send down assassins to try to steal the pods, then.
Thu-Fri The Masque of Mandragora eps 1 - 4 of 4
Note to Main Console Room: "I did warn you that if you kept on malfunctioning, I would try the other room. And yes, I appreciate the irony that the other console room promptly let in an angry piece of Mandragora energy that took us to 15th Century Italy and tried to create a new Dark Ages on Earth. But it will be at least a full season before I bother giving you another chance." - Doctor
