Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.



The 10th issue of Doctor Who Weekly had a cover date of 19 December 1979. The cover is somewhat notable, as the image of Davros was flipped to ensure he faced inwards, leaving him with a normal left hand, where it should have been the right. Further down, the cover misspells the word "revolution", sporting "revolutution" in its stead.
