This storys alright i think, its a fun little romp around ancient Rome where the doctor and evelyn accidently prevent julius caesars conception and have to try and fix it. I felt that evelyn was a bit out of character in this story as she was purposely trying to change history by preventing julius' birth and trying to have him born as julia caesar instead. I just felt that evelyn is smarter than this and knows the dangers of changing history and should know that having caesar born as a woman doesn't mean that Julia will live the same life that Julius would have and accomplished the same things.

This story was pretty funny at points and i quite liked the twist ending and some of the dialogue was quite good. Overall a decent story thats a good way to spend half an hour listening to.

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.
