Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 27th April 2001:
KTEH 54 San Jose, CA
Sat 11PM PDT The War Machines all 4 eps
(Note: this story is in episode format, while the other Hartnell stories in KTEH's run were in movie format. KTEH was unable to get the episode prints in time for this run of Hartnell, but already had this story from a package of cleaned up specials. This version corresponds to the one released on video in 1997, with restored picture and several scenes that were missing in the old episode and movie versions.) In the final complete Hartnell story, the Doctor and Dodo return to London in 1966, where a group of scientists have built a supercomputer that can link with almost any computer. An inter-net, you could say. But will this be the benevolent system everyone hopes for, or a means to create a great evil?
