Broadcast notes:

WTTW split the story into two parts, with the break occuring during episode three when Ky opens the Time Lord message container. [source: ChicagoEpguides]

Intro: The planet Solos is about to become independent from Earth. This does not please The Marshal, whose power will vanish and whose favorite sport will go a glimmering. His response is not likely to be pleasant to The Doctor, or any other beings, including "The Mutants."

Outro: What knowledge is contained in scrolls? Will The Doctor find a way to repel The Marshal's gas attack? Will I ever stop asking questions? Yes, right now. But here is a statement: "The Mutants" will conclude next Sunday night at 11. [source: ChicagoEpguides]
