Matthew Golden, Vice President of Programming said
We’ve been proud to offer the nation the biggest source of classic Doctor Who stories available on broadcast TV, and beginning this autumn, we’re introducing even more. These stories, featuring the First, Second, Third and Fourth Doctors are classic tales that showcase the history and quality of this seminal series at its best. Between our current library and the addition of these new episodes, Retro TV will continue bringing the good Doctor, his companions and his adventures in the TARDIS to our viewers for the years to come.

The additional serials include: “The Aztecs,” a First Doctor cautionary historical story of the dangers of changing the past; “Meglos,” featuring a cactus-like doppelganger of the Fourth Doctor; “Spearhead From Space,” the Third Doctor’s debut adventure and the first story of the series to be filmed and presented in color; and a trio of Second Doctor tales: “The Tomb of the Cybermen,” featuring the early incarnations of one of the Doctor’s most fearsome foes; “The Seeds of Death,” an eerie tale of the Second Doctor’s battle with the original inhabitants of Mars, the Ice Warriors; and “The War Games,” the epic 10-part saga that results in the Second Doctor’s regeneration.

Schedule Change Pits Doctor Who against Britain's Got Talent FinalBookmark and Share

Wednesday, 31 May 2017 - Reported by Marcus
The Lie Od The Land: Bill (Pearl Mackie), Monk (Credit: BBC/BBC Worldwide (Simon Ridgway/Stuart Manning))Doctor Who will go head to head with the final of the ITV Talent show Britain's Got Talent this Saturday in a change to published schedules.

The final of the talent show has been moved from Sunday to prevent it clashing with One Love Manchester, a tribute concert to benefit those affected by the recent Manchester bomb attack, which will be shown on BBC One from 6.55pm on Sunday evening.

A statement from ITV says
Ariana Grande’s ‘One Love Manchester’ benefit concert is bringing artists and the public together and will raise funds for the Red Cross’s Manchester Emergency Fund. “ITV and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ have no desire to distract from this important cause, so we have taken the decision to move the Britain’s Got Talent Final from Sunday night.”
The change means that Doctor Who - The Lie Of The Land, starting at 7.35pm on BBC One will be directly against the final of the talent show, currently set to begin at 7.30pm, rather than the dating show Take Me Out.
