Deviations from 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.)
