Doctor Who: The Romans

So, I am way behind on these, but there is no time to catch up like the everpresent now.  Way back a long time ago, we had another family video night thing.  It was another old Doctor Who.  This time The Romans a First Doctor story from 1965.

This was a fun story because it actually tried to be somewhat funny.  People running around, missing each other, that sort of thing.  Just a lot of goofing around.  So, for a First Doctor story this was pretty good.  I mostly enjoyed it.  And we got to see how the great fire of Rome happened.  (It was of course the Doctor’s fault.)

Four episodes, 25 minutes each.  Probably would have been more than fine with half of that.  But you know, that’s how old Doctor Who is.

I’m still anxious to hurry up and get to late 70’s and early 80’s Who, but we’re going through these slowly enough that they keep releasing more of the older ones before we get to the newer ones…  so we’re still often in the 60’s, although we’ve made occasional forays into the early 70’s.
