Broadcast notes:

Intro: There was a bad fellow named Morbius, who, by law, was deprived of his corpse. Though it's hard to explain, he bottled his brain, giving fits to the genius Timelordius.

Outro: Next week, the Doctor and Sarah uncover the kind of vegetable you can't find in the Burpee catalog: you don't peel it, it peels you. Be with us next Sunday night at 11 as the Gallifreyan chef tries to cook "The Seeds of Doom." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
