Broadcast notes:

Intro: The Dominators need fuel for their space fleet and they've got their sights set on a very good-sized self service station. The landlords don't like the idea, but they're pacifists, unable to fight back. Enter The Doctor to confront "The Dominators."

Outro: Next week, the Doctor, Zoe and Jamie travel to the planet of The Gonds, a primitive people in the power of an unseen race and their teaching machines. Join us next Sunday evening at 11 and meet "The Krotons." [source: ChicagoEpguides]

ChicagoEpguides reported that WTTW decided to show The Mind Robber before The Dominators as they felt it was a better introduction to Patrick Troughton.
