Intro: Well, tonight we're going to kill some time. Actually, it is a fearsome monster called Kronos which is going to do the killing. Kronos eats time, and as such is properly termed a chronovore. But call it what we will, Kronos is a difficult chap to keep on a leash, even for The Master. Oh, didn't I mention that The Master will appear? He will. And would you believe the queen of Atlantis? I trust you will waste no time making time for "The Time Monster."

Outro: Well, The Master is nothing if not resourceful, and his resources are myriad. Next week, both The Master and The Doctor will utilize their respective TARDISes to travel to Atlantis where The Doctor will suffer the exquisite embrace of Kronos, which means he's in for quite a time. Join us next Sunday night at 11 for the conclusion of "The Time Monster." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
