Intro: As the song goes, the cowman and the farmer should be friends. But how about the colonists and the mineralogists? Well, that is a stickier wicket and The Master's presence will do little mitigate the situation that obtains in the "Colony in Space."

Outro: The doomsday machine becomes the sinecure and with good reason, implicit in its name. Who will gain control? Be with us next Sunday evening at 11 for the conclusion of "Colony in Space." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
