FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Plot Hole: Williams started the previous war by attacking the Draconian ship that was sent to negotiate a peace. He claims he did so because it was a battle cruiser and both ships were supposed to be unarmed. Both if both ships were to be unarmed, what did he destroy the Draconian ship with?

  • QUOTES (2)

    • The Master: I'd like to try and take the Doctor alive, if possible. If not, I'll blast him out of space! Pity, though...
      Ogron: You do not wish to kill him?
      The Master: Of course I do! Ah, you know: rocket fire at long range, it's… I don't know, it lacks that personal touch.

    • Draconian Emperor: An Emperor who does not rule deposes himself.

  • NOTES (1)

    • An earlier version of this episode that, with extra scenes cut from the broadcast version runs for an extra 5 minutes, was inadvertently sent to Australia for broadcast. [This also happened with Carnival of Monsters, Episode Two.] This version included a revised synthesiser arrangement of the theme music by Paddy Kingsland - the "Delaware" theme, so called because of where it was made.

      This alternative version of Episode Five was the one used on the video release.
