Hal shoots the axe out of Irongron's hand allowing he & Sarah to rescue the Doctor. They take him captive to Sir Edward's castle where the Doctor explains what is actually happening and that Linx is helping Irongron. Irongron attacks Sir Edward's castle but is repelled by the Doctor using a superior stink & smoke bomb. The Doctor & Sarah, disguised as wandering monks, sneak into Irongron's castle and into the dungeon where they are reunited with Professor Ruebish. While trying to revive & release the exhausted enslaved scientists so he can return them home the Doctor is captured by Linx who fires his weapon at him.

Or "Sarah learns she has jumped to the wrong conclusions". Won't be the last time either ;-)

The word TIME crops up in Doctor Who story names quite a bit. Well it's a series about time travel, you'd expect it to.

The Space Museum 2: The Dimensions of Time
The Chase 2: The Death of Time
The Time Meddler
The Daleks' Master Plan 12: Destruction of Time

The Time Monster
The Time Warrior
The Invasion of Time
Trial a Timelord
Time and the Rani

Yeah. Not some of the series finest hours, Time Meddler & Destruction of Time excepting. What then shall we conclude? The series is better doing stuff about death than time?
