Doctor Who stuck in a time loop.

Please identify this Tom Baker-era Doctor Who episode. I saw it once when I was a child. All I remember from it was the Doctor fixing K-9 and time becoming a loop around him.

The story would zip back to him fixing K-9 and only figuring out after several moments that he had become stuck in time. He would then canter off to try to fix the timey-loopy thing, but of course he could only ever get so far before he would be zipped back to fixing K-9.

Of course, my memory might be a bit off on the details, but this is the best of my recollection.

Perhaps The Armageddon Factor? I have a vague memory of this scene as well but can't place it for certain right now.

Best answer: Meglos and it wasn't a time loop but a Chronic Hysteresis Loop, Romana was there too.

God, I found that scene utterly creepy as a kid.

I will never forget that scene it was great. We would act that scene out as kids. We were dorks.

This scene becomes randomly stuck in my head at strange moments too. I'm glad I'm not the only one!
