Late Sat Mid EDT The Visitation all 4 eps
The 5th Doctor gets Tegan to Heathrow Airport - 300 or so years early. The locals are all acting strangely, and for once it's not just an ill-conceived scriptwriter assuming that rural people are bumpkins. That aspect's there too, but it's not the main reason they're acting strangely. Meanwhile, an old friend suffers a startling fate.
ยป it was confirmed the following week this was actually shown in movie format.
