The Doc & Friends sport togas, eat grapes and commit murder, not to mention meet Emperor Nero himself, in this glorious serial
The Doctor, Barbara, Ian and Vicki crash the TARDIS off the side of a cliff in the Roman Empire, and leave it there to collect dust for a month while they lounge around, eat candied ants and drink fine wines. Soon enough, though, they decide a long enough time has passed without them being split up, so Doc heads off to Rome with Vicki, while Barb and Ian are kidnapped by ruthless slave traders and brought to the galleys and gladiator academy, and the palace of Emperor Nero himself, respectively.
They’re not the only ones to see some action, though. Doc and Vicki soon stumble upon a dead troubadour and then rob the stiff of its musical instrument, so that Doc may assume its identity and play at Nero’s court, while Vicki in a glorious display of cold-bloodedness smiles ear to ear. Think that’s it? Guess again. Because the elderly grandfather and his surrogate Susan are going to add murder, fraud and arson to their list of crimes that already covers trespassing and identity theft.
Gratias to Gina, JD, Kyle and Davis for their marvellous minis! Naturally, they’re all included on the podcast for your listening pleasure, and – for the benefit of your eyeballs – here below.
