Broadcast notes:

Owing to a mistake broadcasting episodes 1-3 earlier in the year, both this and the second block of episodes were shown on this date to enable the "missing" The Time Warrior to be shown the following weekend.

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: Tonight, The Doctor returns to Peladon after an absence of fifty years and finds to his consternation that the monster of Aggedor is again spreading terror and death. We have no doubt as to The Doctor's ability to put things right, but be forewarned: it will take quite a while.

Outro: Keep the coffee hot, the conclusion of "The Monster of Peladon" follows almost immediately. [source: ChicagoEpguides]
