Broadcast notes:

Intro: Can The Doctor dissuade Leela from thinking that any unusual occurrence is caused by magic? Can he persuade her to give up her crossbow? More to the point, can his knowledge and her intuition overcome the challenge that faces them: "The Robots of Death"? Maybe.

Outro: Next week, in Victorian London, The Doctor finds himself embroiled with a Tong of the Black Scorpion. Be with us next Sunday night at 11 for "The Talons of Weng Chiang." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
