Broadcast notes:

WTTW used "The Dead Planet" as the overall title of the story, adding it to the titles of the opening episode five. [source: ChicagoEpguides]

Intro: Don't invite a Thal and a Dalek to the same party. Further, don't invite a Dalek to any party. Still further, don't hang about with a Dalek at all. They may filch your fluid link, and make it very difficult to continue your existence on "The Dead Planet," or anywhere else.

Outro: Next week, The Doctor attempts to gain control of TARDIS faulty guidance system and return the two school teachers to London, 1963, with startling results. They may be observed next Sunday at 11 when we approach "The Edge of Destruction." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
