The two episodes were written by four different people, though few really notice. The first episode was written by RobertHolmes and script editor Eric Saward together, with Holmes slowly dying from disease. He passed away without finishing the final episode, which was finished off by Eric Saward himself and then withdrawn when Producer Creator/JohnNathanTurner disagreed with it. The final episode was then entrusted to Pip and Jane Baker ''(no relation to Colin '''or''' Tom Baker, who themselves are also unrelated)'', who had written [[Recap/DoctorWhoS22E3TheMarkOfTheRani previously]] for [[Recap/DoctorWhoS23E3TerrorOfTheVervoids the series]]. In fact, Pip and Jane weren't even allowed to ''see'' the original script, not to mention they had no clue how the story was supposed to end.

Added DiffLines:

* HijackedByGanon: Subverted - the Master turns out to have caused most of the events of the "Trial" season, but then the Valeyard took advantage of his actions to become the real "Ultimate Foe".
