Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 8th June 2001:
BBC America
Mon-Thu 8AM EDT (5AM PDT) / Tue-Fri 5AM EDT (2AM PDT) - 2 episodes in movie format daily
Mon/Tue The Masque of Mandragora movie, pt 2 of 2

There is nothing scarier for an evil person than to meet someone who is more evil. The shock and terror that ensues can be lethal. Count Frederico is about to discover someone on his staff is more evil than he is. Can he take the heat?
Tue-Wed/Wed-Thu The Hand Of Fear movie, pts 1 - 2 of 2
A fossilized hand buried in a quarry holds the keys to the secret behind the death of a crystalline civilization millions of years ago. Did this hand belong to the villain involved in Kastria's destruction, or the victim?
Thu/Fri The Deadly Assassin movie, pt 1 of 2
The Doctor is lured into a plot to assassinate the President of the Time Lords, via his efforts to prevent it. Probably the best example of a "serious" Tom Baker story.
