* ''' '''The Master speculates on how Rassilon used the time-scoop, and how he got on well with Percival's predecessor.

''To be added''
* There are a few minor spelling changes: The Master's alias Thascales becomes Thascalos, [[Charles Percival|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 [[Mike Yates|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, [[Humphrey Cook|Cook's]] first name is given as Humphrey.)
