Broadcast notes:

WTTW broadcast the story into two parts, with the split taking place during episode three when Caldwell tells the Doctor that an attack on the IMC ship would be a slaughter. [source: ChicagoEpguides]

Outro: And so the colonists can now, according to the advice of Candide, make our gardens grow. In Candide, you recall that one of the afflictions suffered by the protagonist and his companions was a band of monkeys which chased them and bit them in unmentionable places. Next week, The Doctor and his companions will be chased by the Ogrons, gorilla-like creatures which are beastly enough in themselves, but their rulers are much worse. Who are they? The Daleks, and they'll have their day, next Sunday night at 11. [source: ChicagoEpguides]
