The Romans

30 Days of Summer Time Doctor Who- Day 5-  What’s your favourite episode serial?

The Romans

DOCTOR: Oh, what zest, what youthful exuberance! Try not to look at them, child, their outburst of energy could make you go dizzy!
VICKI: Barbara, we went to Rome. We met Nero! They all thought the Doctor was a musician and they gave a concert and all these people were…
BARBARA:Vicki, listen, listen…
DOCTOR: My dear Barbara. The young lady doesn’t want to listen to people who have been idling away their days.
BARBARA:I haven’t been idling!
DOCTOR: Well, now you’ve had a nice long holiday, I’m sure you can’t wait to get back to the TARDIS, hmm?
IAN: If you let us get a word in edgeways, we’d…
DOCTOR: It’ll have to keep. Have a grape!

IAN: Well, how do you like that?
BARBARA: Oh well. Even if we had told them, I don’t think they’d have believed us.
IAN: No. Said we were dreaming.
BARBARA: Oh, it isn’t fair, Ian, is it?
IAN: No it is not! Though, got a funny side to it, hasn’t it?

It was hard to pick just one out of fifty years worth of great serials/episodes, but ‘the Romans’ never fails to make us laugh, and is purely brilliant from start to finish. Sit back, relax, and enjoy ‘the Romans’.
