The Curse of Peladon - Escape Route

When Arcturus, one of the alien delegates is attacked and left floundering in his life support machine, the Doctor airs his suspicions to Jo

She takes it upon herself to find the proof the Doctor needs and searches the Ice Warriors room. She finds a vital component removed from the life support but before she can take the discovery back to the Doctor the Ice Warrior Ssorg arrives and catches her.

Imprisoned in the room to await the scrutiny of the Ice Lord Izlyr, the ever resourceful Jo makes her escape via the window. She climbs out onto a ledge high up on the wall of the citadel and whilst the ceaseless storm buffets her she edges towards another window.
