Broadcast notes:

Intro: The energy of the Time Lords is being drained by a black hole and The Doctor is not able to stop it. To assist him come his first two incarnations. This not only gives The Doctor a chance to overcome the unseen nemesis, but gives you a chance to meet the original generation and the first regeneration of The Doctor. Prepare yourself then for a rendezvous with "The Three Doctors."

Outro: Now that he is free to travel in time and space again, The Doctor will, next week, promise Jo a trip to Metebelis Three, the famous blue planet of the Acteon group. But the best laid plans of mice and men, and Time Lords, gang aft agley. The Doctor materializes the TARDIS on a cargo ship crossing the Indian Ocean in 1926, or so it seems. Be with us next Sunday night at 11 for "Carnival of Monsters." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
