Broadcast notes:

WTTW split the story into two, with the break made during episode four when the alternative Stahlmann clutches his head in pain after threatening Sutton. [source: ChicagoEpguides]

Intro: The Doctor will soon find that the Wizard of Ooze, Professor Stahlman, has undergone a distinct change of personality, or shall I say an intensification of his already rotten one? It will be interesting to see which being prevails. One might say it would make a world of difference.

Outro: Next week, The Doctor and Jo will meet the Axons, beautiful humanoids who resemble golden statues. Shakespeare tells us that all that glisters is not gold which is right on the money. You can bet your bottom dollar that we will see that they are shilling for their spaceship, and that, to be franc, he will not peso much attention to them as to the "Claws of Axos." [this was the wrong outro, it belongs to the following episode instead!] [source: ChicagoEpguides]
