Broadcast notes:

Intro: We have learned this evening that Patrick Troughton, the second Doctor Who, died yesterday of a heart attack while in Columbus, Georgia, to attend a convention. As fate would have it, he appears in tonight's adventure, "The Three Doctors." We respectfully dedicate the program to his memory.

Outro: Next week, The Doctor promises Jo a trip to Metebilis Three, the famous blue planet of the Acteon Group. Will they get there? The answer next Sunday night at 11 on "Carnival of Monsters." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
