Intro: As The Doctor battles The Master and Davros across the stars, on planet Earth, Republicans and Democrats prepare to face each other in heated debate. Though The Doctor cares little about the politics of man, the compulsion to show the presidential debate is, on Earth, very strong. And because of it, The Doctor will begin at midnight next Sunday. But tonight, we tarry no longer: the mysteries of the "Planet of Fire" await.

Outro: Because of the presidential debate, next week's adventure will begin an hour later than usual. When you join us at midnight, we'll find Turlough back home, Peri aboard, the TARDIS will land on the planet Androzani Minor where our protagonist will find himself in a sticky wicket. To determine just how sticky, be with us next Sunday at midnight for "The Caves of Androzani." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
