Broadcast notes:

Intro: The Doctor and Sarah return from Renaissance Italy just in time to be handy at a rock-clearing explosion. Trouble is soon at hand, and in lending a hand, Sarah soon finds herself at a handicap. How will the Doctor handle it? I won't hand you a line. All you must do is stay close at hand. [a Jon Pertwee title card was displayed by mistake]

Outro: Next week, the Doctor is called home to Gallifrey to run for president of the Time Lords and he doesn't even have a political action committee. But the Doctor will find more than a campaign waiting when he returns to the planet of his birth. He will also contend with a "Deadly Assassin," next Sunday night at 11. [source: ChicagoEpguides]
