Broadcast notes:

Intro: That sultry, fallen Time Lord The Rani, and her batty henchmen the Tetraps, oppress the lethargic local population on Lakertya while they work on a sinister project. Enter The Doctor, but not of his own volition. Tonight, the new Doctor arrives to encounter "Time and the Rani."

Outro: Paradise Towers won a lot of awards in the twenty-first century. It might even be a nice place to live now if it weren't for the Kangs, the Caretakers and, well, you'll learn soon enough, next Sunday night at 11 when we journey to "Paradise Towers." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
