As the Chicago area cleans up after the flooding rain that struck yesterday, take some time off to catch one of the pledge airings of this story. The 4th Doctor is lured back to Gallifrey, only to be framed for the murder of the President of the Time Lords. To prove his innocence, OJ, er, the Doctor must go on a search for the real killer - in the Matrix! Perhaps the darkest story in the original series, with memorable plot twists in episode 4.
