PANEL 1:
The shot of Pat used here is different to the TV version. I felt a better still image would be the Second Doctor in front of the TARDIS. The image is composited from a shot of Pat from later in the story against the Newbery Police Box prop.

PANEL 2:
If Borusa used the Time Scoop to snatch the Doctors to the Death Zone in The Five Doctors, I reasoned that the CIA would have to use something similar to transport Pat & Bill to join Jon.

PANEL 3:
Thank you, Terrance Dicks!

PANEL 4:
Given that the camera remains static for Pat’s materialisation, it made sense to make this one long split panel rather than three individual ones.

PANEL 5:
Another greyed-out monitor.

PANEL 4:
New Series gallifreyan graphics on the screen behind the CIA Chief’s head.

PANEL 5:
Another Marvel-style “Editor” note.

PANEL 7: The implication being that the Doctor has been working for the CIA for some time, which you can see as a reference to Season 6B if you like, or simply a nod to the various TV missions – to Peladon, Uxarius & Solos – that the Time Lords sent the Third Doctor on prior to this.

PANEL 1:
In this version, Gallifrey gets mentioned prior to it’s original revealing in The Time Warrior and we get the first Marvel-style “Editor” note, helping to give this the comic strip feel I was after.
Although the implication from TTD is that the Time Lords we see in that story are the President and Chancellor, I felt it made more sense if they were the CIA, acting on the President’s instructions, as that would allow me to get both versions on screen together.

PANEL 2:
“By order of the Prezza” seemed to be a stronger motivation for breaking Time Law #1 and bringing Jon, Pat & Bill together than the original, and it provided further justification for bringing the two versions of the Time Lords together, which I always wanted to do .

PANEL 3:
Another TDA Easter Egg, name checking Rassilon.

PANEL 4: 
When the Prezza has finished, the monitor defaults to the New Series’ gallifreyan graphics.

PANEL 5:
I always wondered why we never saw a scene like this in the TV version, particularly since Bill is able to communicate with the TARDIS with no problem, and he’s stuck in time eddy! So I put it here, not just because it works, but also because it will help make sense of a puzzling moment later on in the ep.

PANEL 6:
Finding shots for the various “new” scenes and moments in this version sometimes entailed using shots from elsewhere in the story, such as here. If memory serves, it’s from Part 4 where Jon is chatting with Bill.

PANEL 3:
The TARDIS monitor gets greyed out again, whereas on TV it’s playing a loop of the flare effect used when the blob attacks.

PANEL 4:
The New Series’ version of Gallifrey, yay! Had to be done. The chance to combine both the New and Classic series’ like this was too good an opportunity to miss.

PANEL 5:
I took the opportunity to put both versions of the Time Lords – from both Three Doctors and Deadly Assassin – on screen together to help reconcile the two. And, as an Easter Egg, the President from TDA paraphrases Tom’s opening narration from that story.

PANEL 6:
The monitor shows the black hole from The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit, a rather more convincing visual than the 1972 version! And another Easter Egg from TDA, name checking the Eye of Harmony.

PANEL 4:
In the original screen grab for this, Jo is obscured by Benton so I had to find a shot of Katy from elsewhere in the story and insert her here.  If memory serves, it’s from part 4.

PANEL 5:
On TV, the TARDIS monitor in this scene is relaying the shot from this camera, which looks kind of weird. So that had to get greyed out, as per the Fan Edit.
