WYBE 35 Philadelphia, PA

No 5:30PM airing this week due to cooking specials. The 7th Doctor and Ace race to bring an end to the evil Circus that kills anyone who visits it. The circus is not terribly different from your regular circus (people eating popcorn, the acts being killed), but the Doctor decides to shut this one down.
11PM EDT Battlefield eps 1+2 of 4
Lethbridge-Stewart is called out of retirement one last time when Arthurian knights from another dimension come to England to do battle. He finds himself dealing with the new Brigadier (Bambera) and yet another incarnation of his old Scientific Advisor.
