Broadcast notes:

WTTW split the story into two parts, with the break occuring at the start of episode four when Sskel tells his prisoners not to move. [source: ChicagoEpguides]

Intro: The Doctor and Sarah have come to Peladon where the spirit of the sacred monster is terrorizing the populous. The Doctor, in his attempt to help Queen Thalira, will find there is more involved than just "The Monster of Peladon."

Outro: Trouble in the trisilicate mines. The though chills the blood, or is it the proximity of The Ice Warriors? Join us for the dénouement next Sunday evening at 11. [source: ChicagoEpguides]
