Broadcast notes:

Intro: Lady Adrasta lives and rules on the planet Chloris. If you pit yourself against her, she'll have you pitched into the pit, and, to be pithy, that's the pits. When The Doctor is picked as Adrasta's latest pit pet, he soon hears the pitty pat of "The Creature from the Pit."

Outro: Next week, meet the Mandrels. Not the vivacious, country-singing sisters. These Mandrels could not carry off a Willie Nelson tune, but they can carry off virtually anything else, and in most horrifying fashion. Be with us next Sunday evening at 11 and witness the "Nightmare of Eden." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
