Story Code: TTT / Season 10 UK Airdate: 19 May to 23 Jun 1973 Doctor: Jon Pertwee
First airings by location UK Repeats / Foreign Cable and Satellite Previous Story / Next Story

This story aired in the following known countries. They are listed in chronological order according to known airdate. If no month is noted, the actual airdate is not confirmed, and is a close approximate. (Refer also to Selling Doctor Who for expanded airdates.)

Canada 76 or 77 NTSC
  • The story was assessed and rejected by the censors in Australia in October 1973. This also meant that New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Gibraltar could not purchase.
  • The story was also not offered to Middle Eastern countries, so it didn't air in Saudi Arabia or United Arab Emirates along with the rest of the season.
    • CONSPIRACY THEORY: It is thought this might have been a deliberate move by the BBC because the serial did not necessarily paint the oil/chemical industry in a very good light...


  • The Australian censors were asked by the ABC to reassess the story for a run of repeats, and this time it was cleared. This also meant that New Zealand could buy the serial, where it screened at the same time (coincidentally!) that Jon Pertwee was touring with his Cabaret Show.

New Zealand Jan 79 PAL
  • The serial was also issued to the USA in mid-1983, as part of a package of 14 full colour Jon Pertwee stories:
United States from Jun 83 NTSC
  • Canada was also offered the serial again in the 1990s (?).
