Chang then aimed a firearm at him and told the audience he would fire a "magic bullet" that would only hit the chosen card. The Doctor brought the deck closer to his face and Chang fired. Taking his card out from the deck, the Doctor found the bullet had put a hole through the single diamond pictured on the ace. (TV: The Talons of Weng-Chiang)
