DO NOT believe the TV Guide. This is the very first color Doctor Who story. IT IS NOT BLACK & WHITE! The Washington & Baltimore versions of the TV Guide have gotten this wrong every time MPT has aired this story for more than a decade. It is in color! Not as good color as the recently restored DVD version, but it is still in color.
