I feel dumb asking a simple question about one of my favorite episodes but here goes... Did Gwyllm die at the end of the story? Or was he just brain dead? I always supposed that he died with his eyes open but through the years several of my friends have disputed this. I welcome your expert opinions. Thanks. Guy

>Did Gwyllm die at the end of the story? Or was he just brain dead? He seemed to be dazed or stunned, but I don't think he was either dead or brain-dead. There were two other endings considered for this episode: one finished with Gwyllm a puddle of protoplasm on the floor, the other with Gwyllm a sort of rhesus monkey. David McCallum was all for the monkey, incidentally. "...there is, as they say, a special science against gunshots --- ballistics. But against the RADIO scientific thought seems to be blind." --- Mikhail Zoshchenko, _The Anti-Noise Campaign_
