-->"But if we do get back, I really do think you ought to be a bit more reasonable with the Master.

* CharacterOutlivesActor: Roger Delgado was to make one last appearance after this serial as The Master in a story where he ultimately [[HeroicSacrifice gives his life]] [[RedemptionEqualsDeath to save the Doctor and the universe]]. However, after completing this serial, Delgado was killed in a car crash in Turkey. The last we see of the Master is his dastardly escape after shooting the Doctor. The character would not be seen again until "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E3TheDeadlyAssassin The Deadly Assassin]]", when he would be a dessicated, nearly-unrecognizable husk some four years later.

The Ogrons overwhelm the shop and steal the cargo, including the TARDIS. The Doctor and Jo are accused of being Draconian spies. The Doctor is sent to a penal colony, while Jo is placed in the care of "the Commissioner from Sirius 4" - actually the Master. The Master rescues the Doctor from the penal colony and imprisons him and Jo aboard his stolen spacecraft, revealing he plans to spark a war between Earth and Draconia using Ogron mercenaries and a hypnotic device that makes the spaceship crews perceive them as whatever they most fear.
