Broadcast notes:

Intro: So benign is the atmosphere of Traken that it literally calcifies visiting evil creatures into statues. That's why it always places high on the intergalactic list of desirable place to live. It might, however, lose a few points tonight as the allotted millennium of the current keeper of Traken nears an end. Better stay tuned to WTTW, Chicago, before you decide to relocate.

Outro: Emotions will run high in the city of logic next week, and with good reason. The end of the universe appears to be at hand, and that isn't the only thing that appears to have run out the string, providing of course if the universe prevails. What or who is it? Join us next Sunday night at 11 as The Doctor journeys to "Logopolis." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
