Broadcast notes:

WTTW split the story into two parts, with the break occuring just before the end of episode three when Sarah says that she'll come quietly from the village. [source: ChicagoEpguides]

Outro: Next week, the regenerated Time Lord is given over to the care of a UNIT medical doctor. But his recovery must perforce be swift to challenge the menace of an impregnable machine. Be with us next Sunday night at 10 [sic] for "Robot." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
