Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 19th January 2001:
KBDI/K32EO 12,32 Denver/Colorado Springs, CO
Late Fri 12:30AM MST City of Death all 4 eps
This is the third time the Doctor has visited Paris on screen (The Reign Of Terror, The Massacre), and this time he finally gets to enjoy himself. At least until someone starts playing around with time and endangering the history of the world. And yes, they actually filmed in Paris.
Sat 10PM MST The Creature from the Pit eps 1+2 of 4
A distress call brings the Doctor to the planet Chloris, where the dictatress Adrasta rules the vegetation laden world with a metal will. Might not be the best story to use to introduce the series to a Greenpeace activist. Industry squeezed out by letting the wilderness overgrow the place. Horrors. :-)
