Barbara in ‘the Romans’


Favorite Doctor Who episodes: the First Doctor → The Romans

Isn’t it strange to think that people will read about that in books for thousands and thousands of years and here am I sitting here actually watching it.

The Romans and the Web Planet.

Nero gives Barbara the gold bracelet in Rome, and she wears it in her next story. Vicki of course assumes that any jewellery would be a present from Ian! The gold bracelet is also used in the Web Planet to take hold of Barbara and control her. Unfortunately her gift from a Caesar is destroyed on the planet. Guess Ian will have to buy her a new one and replace his missing gold pen at the same time.

IAN: If you let us get a word in edgeways, we’d…
DOCTOR: It’ll have to keep. Have a grape!

Ian loves grapes and we love Ian (and grapes)

Toby Hadoke (Mod) (about William Russell and Jackie Hill) you two work together brilliantly.

Chris Barry (Dir) Marvellous pair.

Toby: Looks like a lot of fun there. So this rapport was geniune I take it?

William: Oh yes.

Christopher: I’ve forgotten what relationship yours was in the story.

William: Well it was always teetering on the edge of being a romance.

Toby: We like to think that when they left the Doctor there was a future between them.

William: You think so? yes.

Toby: I hope so.

William: End of the chase eh? Maybe.(William laughs)

The first Doctor, ladies and gentlemen.

Ian looks for Barbara in both ‘The Crusade’ and ‘The Romans’.

The Romans

In which Barbara wants to comb Ian’s hair and he then acts like a four year old.

 Do you know it was I that used to teach the Mountain Mauler of Montana?
