Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 14th December 2001:
MPT Maryland 22,28,31,36,62,67
Late Sat Mid EST The Curse of Peladon movie (actually 12:25AM)
The 3rd Doctor and Jo are manipulated by the Time Lords into visiting the planet Peladon, which is trying to join the Galactic Federation. All is not well on that planet.
(Just a thought - MPT has moved Doctor Who to a Midnight start time, and come January WQED will also start Doctor Who at Midnight. If MPT is considered a must carry station in the Pittsburgh market, satellite subscribers in Pittsburgh will have to pick between Doctor Who on two stations in the same time slot. It's been a long time since Doctor Who has gotten to compete against itself in the United States.)
