Colony in Space - S8-E4

Corrected entry: The reel-to-reel tape recorder seen in this story is wonderfully anachronistic. The first cassette and cartridge tape players/recorders were invented some eight years before this story was made and were already being sold in Britain.

Correction: According to others on this board, this episode takes place in the 25th Century, at which time ANY 20th Century recording device would be anachronistic. The argument of technological advancement could be used against the original War of the Worlds because we now know there aren't any Martians. (Are there?) I think this mistake should be junked.

Colony in Space - S8-E4

Corrected entry: The Master calls the enquiry a "tribunal". How can it be if there's only one of him? Tribunals tend to be made up of three people, hence the name..."tri" meaning "three"

Correction: The word "tribunal" originally referred to the court presided over by an ancient Roman magistrate known as a "tribune", and has nothing to do with having three people on it.
