The final episode of this adventure is quite significant besides it being Patrick Troughton's farewell after three years and twenty-one stories. As well as ushering in a new Doctor, and a new era in the show with budget-dictated Earthbound exile, this was the first time that the Doctor's race had been named, and that the reason for the Doctor's fugitive status had been explored. This is also the only time during the show's initial run that the Doctor and all of his companions changed at the same time. It wouldn't happen again for another [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime forty years]].[[note]]With HarsherInHindsight value! [[/note]]

The one with a magic cube.
cube. Oh, and the one where the Doctor is executed.



It turns out that a race known only as "The Aliens" have kidnapped a number of soldiers from Earth's history, brainwashed them and set them to fighting replicas of their own wars. The survivors will be made into an army capable of conquering the galaxy. They are aided by the War Chief, whom the Doctor recognises as being one of his own race, and who has provided the Aliens with [[FunWithAcronyms Sidrat]]s for transport purposes. However, the War Chief plans to double-cross the Aliens and seize power himself.

They arrive and the Doctor is instantly put on trial for violating one of the Time Lords' prime directives - noninterference in other races' history. The Doctor argues that he has always done good, but to no avail. He is sentenced to exile on Earth, while Jamie and Zoe are returned to their own times, just before they met the Doctor, with their memories wiped. The Doctor is additionally informed that he must change his appearance again... and once the rules of regeneration were later established, these events can be construed as the Doctor's summary execution.

* CavalryBetrayal: At long last, the Doctor finds one enemy (The War Chief) he can't fight without sending for reinforcements from Gallifrey. The Time Lords aren't amused: they find the Doctor guilty -- with some equanimity -- of ruining whole civilizations and then splitting before the clean-up. His sentence is separation from his companions, the dismantling of his TARDIS, and exile in post-sixties London. Oh, and they execute him[[note]]In the sense of forcing him to use one of his twelve regenerations[[/note]] just for shiggles.
-->'''War Chief:''' Doctor, you mustn’t call them in, or it will be the end of us. [[BiggerBad They’ll show no mercy.]]
