Sun 3PM EDT The Brain of Morbius eps 3+4 of 4
Sarah is blinded. More problems, including awareness of Timelord interference, has forced Solon to take more drastic steps for putting Morbius's brain into a new head and body with some nasty consequences. Also, the Doctor tries to help the sisterhood to get back their elixir of life in exchange for help to stop the resurrection of Morbius. Will the Doctor finally be able to stop Solon from resurrecting the sinister Morbius? Will the Doctor even get help from the sisterhood who are willing to sacrifice any Timelord as revenge? Also, watch out for the mind-bending contest in Part 4 which has put some fan debate as to which of those other unknown faces on the screen are either incarnations of Morbius or of the Doctor (We may never know). Also, watch out for cameos from the production team playing unknown incarnations of either the Doctor or Morbius including Terrence Dicks, Robert Holmes and Philip Hinchcliffe. - DavrosDW
