Broadcast notes:

Intro: They are beautiful creatures. As a wise being once observed, "Beware of humanoids bearing Axonite." The Doctor will soon discover the importance of that maxim. Will it be soon enough to defend the Earth from "The Claws of Axos"?

Outro: Next week, The Doctor and Jo are dispatched to an Earth-like planet in the year 2471 and "The Colony in Space." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
