Vengeance on Varos: Seeking the rare mineral Zeiton-7 to repair his TARDIS, the Doctor arrives on Varos, a world where political prisoners and their guards are all subjected to sadistic tortures and executions which the colony's inhabitants view and vote on through interactive television.
Remembrance of the Daleks: The Doctor returns to 1963 London and discovers that his oldest foes, the Daleks, are on the trail of stolen Time Lord technology that they can use to unleash themselves across the whole of time and space.
