Intro: Green is a lovely color: the color of grass and trees and shamrocks and emeralds. But sometimes, to some people, mainly kids, green is not so hot: broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and spinach. Then there is the horrible green, the deadly green, which The Doctor was trying to destroy when we parted company last week: the green of maggots and slime. Compared to that, Brussels sprouts are OK. But, unless The Doctor is successful, Brussels sprouts won't matter. Let us see now how he fares.

Outro: And so we bid farewell to Jo Grant who is now Jo Jones. Next week, we'll welcome Sarah Jane Smith who will stick around for a while, and Linx, Irongron, and Bloodaxe, among others, who will not. Even were I not to urge you, I feel confident you'll be here next Sunday night at 11 to meet "The Time Warrior." For now let us seek amusement while we may with The Two Ronnies, coming up next.
