Broadcast notes:

Episode three was omitted owing to it being black and white.

Intro: Pursuing the Daleks, The Doctor has landed on the planet Spiridon. He has not yet recovered from his wounds and Jo, not understanding his recuperative powers, sets out to find help. We shall soon know what she finds on the "Planet of the Daleks."

Outro: Next week, the villagers of Llanfairfach in Wales are delighted when Global Chemicals receives a government grant to build a refinery. Their elation will be short-lived as we will learn next Sunday evening at 11 when The Doctor and Jo confront "The Green Death." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
