Doctor Who: The Romans
(4 episodes, s02e12-e15, 1965)
A nice humorous episode balanced with seriousness regarding the Roman slave trade. It was a true tour de force of popular Roman story tropes. The poor TARDIS keeps getting used and abused, this time falling off a cliff and laying in a ditch for a month. I loved Vicki’s energy, and the nice character moments between Ian and Barbara.
I also loved the allegory with The Emperor’s New Clothes.
Rating: 4/5 – “Would you care for a jelly baby?”
