The best scene in this episode is mostly missing in the US episodic version due to the poor quality of the editing job on the surviving print. I was horrified when I saw what was cut. Yipes! It's still a good episode, but it will look so much better whenever the prints are replaced with newer versions or it comes out on VHS. The 4th Doctor and Romana come across a ship adrift in space. The ship's destination was Skonnos. The ship's cargo - was people, being brought to be sacrificed.
