Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 11th May 2001:
BBC America
(If you have BBC America but do not have a PBS station with Doctor Who, this could be your last chance to see these stories for a while. Set the VCRs. Of
all the times for BBC America to finally become widely distributed ...)

Mon-Wed/Tue-Thu Genesis of the Daleks movie, pts 1 - 3 of 3

The 4th Doctor is sent on a mission to seek-locate-destroy. He must find the Daleks at the point of their creation, figure out if it is possible to alter their nature into less aggressive creatures. If it is not possible to change the Daleks, then they must be wiped out of time and space, altering much of history.
Thu/Fri The Android Invasion movie, pt 1 of 2
The Doctor and Sarah return to Earth, but England is mostly abandoned. Well, one person falls off a cliff and keeps moving. But otherwise, very few people.
