Nyssa once joked that the Fifth Doctor's well-shot beamer had bowled out a grandparent scorpion that was threatening Rupert Von Thal. (AUDIO: The Boy That Time Forgot)

Behind the scenes Edit

Though certainly implied by her usage, but never explicitly remarked, was the fact that bowled out was a cricketing term that meant that a batsman had been [[out (cricket)|retired]] by an act of good bowling. In most cases, this would mean that the batsman had not defended his wicket, and therefore the cricket ball had struck the stumps, causing the bales to fall to the ground. Some cricketers call this "out bowling", however, reserving "bowled out" as a synonym for "all out", or when the entire cricket side is retired.
