Broadcast notes:

Intro: Susan's recent marriage has left an availability in The Doctor's entourage. Will we meet someone this night to fill the position? It wouldn't surprise me, but I promise you other surprises before "The Rescue" is accomplished. [unknown female announcer]

Outro: Next week, the TARDIS crew travels to Rome, 64 A.D. and The Doctor meets and gives inspiration to the emperor Nero. Join us next Sunday evening at 11 and encounter "The Romans." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
