      DEVIATIONS FROM THE TELEVISED STORY

    • The Master speculates on how Rassilon used the time-scoop, and how he got on well with Percival’s predecessor.
    • There are a few minor spelling changes: The Master‘s alias Thascales becomes Thascalos, Percival becomes Perceval and Miseus become Myseus.
    • Thascalos is not revealed to be The Master until he hypnotises Perceval.
    • The sequence of Krasis disappearing from the temple is omitted.
    • Lakis is not dragged out of the King’s Chamber after delivering her message.
    • The lack of casualties in the Roundhead battle is explained by Yates ordering his men to fire above their heads.
    • The Brigadier addressing Yates as “Mike” after the V1 explosion is changed.
    • Galleia tells
    • The Doctor to leave after freeing him, knowing her people are doomed.
    • On page 61, Perceval is referred to as Humphrey Perceval. This seems to be a mistake, since on other occasions his first name is given as Charles, as in the televised version. (In both versions, Cook’s first name is given as Humphrey.)
