The Doctor and Evelyn find themselves visiting Julius Caesar's parents and become convinced they interferred and caused Caesar's mother not to be in the mood leading to her conceiving later and producing a boy. The Doctor is determined to set history on its proper course while Evelyn believes that by ensuring a girl is born that a girl will rule Rome rather Caesar, ignoring the fact that Caesar became Emperor because of his experience as a general and women weren't allowed in the Roman military.

This is one of those stories that tries to create comedy by having a character act widely outside their character for cheap laughs. Evelyn is way out of character and the Doctor makes a mistake that's so dumb, it strains credulity. This story is a stunning dumbing down of this great team, only helped by a few moments of character revelations.

I really don't care for this one. Oh, it's not without its charms, and the central idea is reasonably clever. But it relies a bit much on coincidence, and Evelyn's behavior is really hard to justify. To start with, she is acting under the ridiculous assumption that if Julius Caesar were born a girl, this would not change the course of his life in any way.

Am I overthinking the story? Yes, probably. But still, I can't listen to it without thinking that Evelyn is behaving rather stupidly, which pulls me right out of the story. I gather it's meant to be funny.

The Doctor and Evelyn find themselves entangled in the events around the birth of Julius Caesar. Travelling forward nine months, to check that they haven't caused any damage, they witness the birth of the child of the Caesar couple - Julia. Believing they have changed the past the Doctor wants to travel back to repair the timeline, but Evelyn decides that things would be better if Roman had been ruled by a woman. Evelyn and the Doctor spend the rest of the time trying to outdo each other. Evelyn's reasons for wanting Caesar to be a girl seem rather arbitrary. Evelyn does just seem to decide she is right and it is her destiny to correct the Doctor whether he likes it or not.

Nice little historic drama based around the Roman era, and, Evelyn trying to alter the path of time and history so that she Julius Caesar is born, what actually happens is more like a farce, where by the Doctor tries to use good old fashioned romance so that a child is conceived and born, where by Evelyn tries to prevent the birth of a girl to the couple. This is a comical historic farce, with the wonderful Maggie Stables and Colin Baker. I can see that this will not appeal to many, but for me this was light hear-ted and a nice little filler
