All Creatures Great and Small - Season 7 - Episode 10

Siegfried takes a close friend to task for wasting his own talents as a veterinary surgeon. Ewan Ross -- "the best horse man north of the Humber" has let his career slide gently into the whiskey bottle after the death of his wife. But Siegfried is determined to make use of his considerable skills. A valuable racehorse with a strangulated hernia could provide Siegfried with not only a way of striking back at "vets in Bentleys", but also putting Ewan on the straight and narrow. James, meanwhile, is strangely reluctant to take on responsibility for Mrs. Pumphrey's beloved Tricky-Woo when she announces that she is off to France. But Siegfried caves in under the persuasive skills of Mrs. Pumphrey and Tricky-Woo moves into Skeldale.

#2 - The Daleks (2)

Doctor Who - Season 2 - Episode 5

The TARDIS materialises in London in mid-22nd century. Dalek invaders are now ruling the Earth with the aid of humans converted into zombie-like "Robomen", but they are opposed by a group of resistance fighters. The Doctor and his companions discover that the Daleks have created a large mine in the English countryside for the purpose of removing the Earth's core (using a massive explosive device) and replacing it with a powerful drive system so that they can pilot the planet around the galaxy. Ian manages to create a barrier in the shaft in order to intercept and deflect the bomb. The resulting explosion destroys the Daleks and their mine. The Earth is safe once again! However, Susan has fallen in love with resistance fighter David Campbell, and the Doctor decides to leave her on Earth to find a new life with him.
