The Black Archive, a series of book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day

 

Written by Jacob Edwards

 

‘Oh, something else I forgot to tell you: I think I’ve poisoned Nero.’

 

Following 53 episodes of unbroken action adventure, The Romans (1965) was Doctor Who’s first ever comedy. Beyond this seminal place in history – beyond the serial’s clever script, vigorous direction, fine acting and all the humour – it remains notable as an expression of 1960s culture, counterculture, and a burgeoning spirit of reinvention.

 

The Romans afforded us the gift of laughter and allowed Doctor Who the freedom to shed its skin.
