Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 21st September 2001:
KTEH 54 San Jose, CA
Sun 11:30PM PDT Inferno eps 3,4,5,+6 of 7
Episodes 3+4 also aired last Sunday. The 3rd Doctor is in an alternate universe, where Britain is run by fascists and the Inferno drilling project is much closer to completion. Dire consequences may occur if the drilling is not stopped. Listen for the voice on the radio in episode 5 - that's Jon Pertwee. The scene was originally cut from UK broadcasts for fear people would recognize that Jon was both on the radio and in the room playing the Doctor at the same time.
