Broadcast notes:

Intro: "This is the weekend Whovians and newbies alike have been crashing through the cosmos with the one-and-only Doctor in our Who on Horror weekend. And next up we're moving onto the 80s with a story largely regarded by the fans as the best Doctor Who storyline of the classic era. Step up to the TARDIS Peter Davison and his trusty companion Peri, played by Nicola Bryant. Pure action, this story sees a dying Doctor and Peri caught up with gun-runners and a drugs war. Look out for the dramatic regeneration scene, as this storyline also marks the end of Davison's time and into a new era, that of Colin Baker's. Time now for The Caves of Androzani."

The ad break occurs as the Doctor and Peri are bundled into the back room of the base, and Peri comments that "I don't think he likes us very much"...
