Sat 11:30PM EST Vengeance on Varos movie
A TARDIS breakdown forces the 6th Doctor and Peri to land on the nearest planet with Zeiton-7 ore. Alas, it is a planet with a barbaric prison system, where executions are televised entertainment. There is a very effective cliffhanger half-way through the story which you probably won't be able to spot in the movie version. But if you want to try, pay attention about 44 minutes in where the Governor says "cut". Create the mental image of the closing credits starting right there, and see what you think.
