Broadcast notes:

Intro: The Doctor has finally convinced Leela to stop carrying her crossbow. Perhaps he was a bit premature: every little bit helps when one is dealing with a mad scientist, heading an army of automata. Naturally, he is bent on ruling the world with the help of his "Robots of Death."

Outro: Next week, The Doctor and Leela travel to another exotic landscape, Victorian London, where he'll meet some exotic fauna, a black scorpion, and a ten-foot rat. And there's more as you'll discover when you join us next Sunday evening at 11 for "The Talons of Weng-Chiang." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
