'Doctor Who Weekend' for Sci Fi UK

By
'Doctor Who Weekend' for Sci Fi UK
The UK Sci Fi Channel is devoting its August Bank Holiday weekend schedule to classic Doctor Who stories.

The programming between Saturday, August 23 and Monday, August 25 will focus on adventures from the fourth and fifth Doctors - Tom Baker and Peter Davison.

In addition, there will be a screening of the ill-fated 1996 TV movie starring Paul McGann and Sylvester McCoy, which attempted to relaunch the series in the United States.

The episodes, which will be shown chronologically, include renowned classics 'The Caves of Androzani' and 'The Ark In Space' - a story that Russell T. Davies has often cited as a major influence on his writing.

Fans of the Cybermen and Sontarans, monsters revived in the current incarnation of the show, can also witness their earlier adventures in 'Revenge of the Cybermen', 'Earthshock' and 'The Two Doctors'.
