Broadcast notes:

WTTW split the story into two parts, with the break occuring just before the end of episode three when Sarah says that she'll come quietly from the village. [source: ChicagoEpguides]

Outro: If Cho-je had not been present to hasten the regeneration process, this would have been our final Doctor Who program. Fortunately for all concerned, save future tyrants, villains and wrong-doers of every stripe, that will not be the case. And the Time Lord, in his present form, will continue. He will be tested almost before he can acclimatize himself next week, as a group of unscrupulous scientists seek to blackmail the world with their indestructible "Robot." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
