Broadcast notes:

WTTW split the story into two parts, with the break occuring during episode three when Ky opens the Time Lord message container. [source: ChicagoEpguides]

Outro: What our friends could use is a Solonian version of the Rosetta Stone with which to translate the scrolls of the old ones. And they could also utilize something to repel The Marshall's imminent gas attack. Anybody have an antacid tablet? On second thought, perhaps you’d better save it. You'll need it yourself in the week that passes when as where(?) we return with the conclusion of "The Mutants." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
