The Stones of Blood (airdate June 3, 1984)
Intro: The Doctor and Romana continue the greatest treasure hunt in history, with the fate of the universe hanging in the balance. Tonight, they seek the second segment of the Key to Time, and travel to the planet on which they hope to find it. Alas, a minor contretemps awaits: they cannot find the planet! They will, however, discover the entity which gives tonight's program its appellation: "The Pirate Planet."
[As it turned out, there was an even greater "contretemps": WTTW put in the wrong tape! "The Pirate Planet" ran for real the next week.]
(no "Next Week")
