Storyline

Danger and discovery await the Doctor back aboard the alien ship, where a modified piece of Time Lord technology awaits his discovery. The Black Guardian is pleased with the Doctor's return and uses Turlough to awaken the ship's undead inhabitants to lead the Doctor to his death. The one uniting factor for all is the unforeseen presence of two Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewarts aboard ship, which could put a sudden end to everyone's plans if they're not kept apart.

Goofs

For the scene requiring the two time incarnations of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart to be seen together in a corridor, a clever effect is used in which two pieces of footage are overlapped together with a split-screen, and with two fades to conceal the switch from a single piece of footage to the split-screen and back again. However, the fades are fairly noticeable (particularly when looking at the elaborate backdrop in this scene), and give the trick away. See more »

Quotes

The Doctor: The transmat could be dangerous.
Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart: I'm coming with you.
The Doctor: If you insist.
Vislor Turlough: And so am I.
Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart: Oh, don't be ridiculous, Turlough.
Vislor Turlough: The Doctor needs my help. And, besides, how do I explain to the Headmaster where you've gone?
The Doctor: Turlough could be useful.
Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart: And what about the danger you implied?
The Doctor: It still exists, but if you're so concerned about Turlough, set an example and stay behind.
