Broadcast notes:

Intro: Two weeks ago, those persons fortunate or perspicacious enough to have been watching WTTW, Chicago, saw one of the rarest of universal occurrences: the transmutation, or regeneration, of a Time Lord. Tonight we will have the opportunity to witness the epocacy and the sartorial taste of the latest gift from Gallifrey as we witness the beginning of a new Who crew in "Castrovalva."

Outro: The latest Doctor has, as we have seen, has initiated his tenure auspiciously. But a Time Lord's time is long in Earth years and each week brings a new challenge of astronomic dimensions. A successful Time Lord must show sustaining power in each of his superior dimensions. We shall all observe with interest the next test: "Four to Doomsday," next Sunday night at 11.
