Broadcast notes:

Intro: On the planet Varos slaves are kept mollified by watching video nasties, games created to keep their minds off their barren existence. One could say it's the Varonian equivalent of Monty Python. But, one hesitates to do so. Draw your own conclusions as The Doctor and Peri attempt to cope with "Vengeance on Varos."

Outro: Next week, The Doctor confronts a renegade Time Lady and The Master in a bathhouse. You don't want to miss "The Mark of the Rani," next Sunday night at 11. [source: ChicagoEpguides]
