Note:  Sometime in mid-2014, the disc was re-authored to remove A Fix with Sontarans from the extras (due to the Jimmy Savile controversy), hence this extra no longer appears in current or future re-pressings of the disc.

Cover blurb:
Whilst investigating unauthorised experiments into time travel aboard Space Station Camera, the Second Doctor and Jamie come under attack from the war-like Sontarans... Elsewhere, the Sixth Doctor and Peri also decide to pay a visit to Camera. They find the station abandoned, but discover Jamie, half-crazed, hiding in the ducting. And he tells them that the Doctor has been murdered...
