Well I never !
This was not at all what I had expected. The romans is basically a typical historical of this era but spiced with humour it actually stands out! Not like a sore thumb either. I have to say for me at least that this suited the first doc just as well as the serious sides stuff. I’d place this par with the Aztecs as my favourite historical ( excluding the lost ones)

Nero is great and ridiculous.
Hope others enjoy as much as I did 9/10

The rescue leads straight into this as some hartnell stories do

Though neither are related

A story that finds the Doctor and TARDIS crew taking a break in Rome with the Doctor and Vicki wandering into the midst of political intrigue while Ian and Barbara end up kidnapped by slavers. This adventure features some genuinely funny moments such as the Doctor fighting off an assassin singlehandedly or Barbara accidentally knocking Ian in the head during a fight, thus dooming them to slavery. The comic moments are set against the backdrop of Roman slavery and Nero's impending burning of Rome and mass murder, gives it a very dark edge. The more you enjoy dark comedy, the more you'll enjoy this story.
