The Deadly Assassin: Movie Format
Intro: A Time Lord is allowed twelve regenerations, which seems eminently fair to us Earthlings who count ourselves lucky to reach our Biblically allotted three score and ten. But the cupidity of some beings is beyond measure and The Master has a plan to try for thirteen, which could prove unlucky for The Doctor. We journey now to the Time Lords' home planet of Gallifrey and a rendezvous with "The Deadly Assassin."
Outro: Next week, The Doctor journeys to a strange planet for he meets a young woman of quick temper and few manners. Her name is Leela and she carries a crossbow and a knife which might be sufficient armament for self defense of Earth, but less than adequate when confronting "The Face of Evil." Be with us next Sunday night at 11. [source: ChicagoEpguides]
