Late Sat 12:15AM EST Invasion of the Dinosaurs movie
(Time approximate after pledge specials. Will probably omit the first episode, which exists only in Black & White, as the movie version didn't include that episode and MPT has never remembered to add it in before.) The 3rd Doctor, Sarah, the Brigadier, Mike Yates, and Sgt. Benton have yet another invasion of London on their hands. But this time the invaders aren't aliens - they're dinosaurs. One of the gang will be forever changed by events in this story. Also, the Doctor introduces a new hover-car in this story. It was apparently intended to be a regular staple of the show, like the Doctor's roadster Bessie had been. However, it would only appear in one more story - Planet of the Spiders - where it had to share screen time with Bessie.
