The Doctor and Leela return to Litefoot’s house and discover the dead policemen. They realize that Mr. Sin was smuggled in via the laundry basket and find Litefoot as he wakes up. Litefoot explains that the Tong attacked and took the Time Cabinet. The Doctor realizes that Mr. Sin is the Peking Homunculus, created in the Ice Age in the year 5000 for the Commissioner of the Icelandic Alliance. The automaton had one organic component, the cerebral cortex of a pig. The pig part took over, attacking the Commissioner and almost setting off World War VI. Somehow Weng-Chiang came from the year 5000 with the Homunculus, but the time travel he used is a dead-end and highly dangerous...Read the full recap
Professor Litefoot: May I ask, sir, who you are?
Henry Gordon Jago: Confound your insolence! Announce me!
Professor Litefoot: Consider yourself announced, sir! I'm Litefoot.
Henry Gordon Jago: Why, dash me optics. I should have realised. That brow, those hands, England's peerless premier professor of pathology!
Henry Gordon Jago: Keep off, you lot. I'm a tiger when my dander's up!
The Doctor: Eureka! Do you know what that is?
Leela: You ask me so that you can tell me.
The Doctor: He's not only a scientific fool, he's an absent-minded one.
Leela: Perhaps he has aother "Eureka."
The Doctor: No, "Eureka" is Greek for, "This bath is too hot."
Leela: We must trap them in the crossfire, Doctor. Somewhere in the open where they cannot find cover.
The Doctor: What sort of crossfire? Hazelnuts? Bread pellets?
Leela: A house this size there must be protection. The professor will have weapons in fixed positions to guard the approaches.
The Doctor: I brought you to the wrong time, my girl. You'd have loved Agincourt!
