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]

Intro: Jackie Gleason has been called "the great one." So has Muhammad Ali. There may be contention for the title here on Earth, but on Metebelis Three, there is only one "the great one." It and The Doctor will clash this night with dire consequences as we move to the stunning conclusion of "Planet of the Spiders."

Outro: Next week, The Brigadier will turn the regenerated Doctor over to the naval position attached to UNIT. The Doctor will have to recover quickly if he is to be of any help to The Brigadier who will have his hands full with an impregnable, but very mixed up Robot. [source: ChicagoEpguides]
