The Romans - The Storm

The Doctor and his companions are taking a well earned break in a villa not too far from Rome in the year AD 64

After a couple of weeks, new companion Vicki is getting itchy feet. The Doctor decides that before they move on he would like to see Rome, so he sets off on the long walk with Vicki accompanying him. Ian and Barbara are left at the villa but it isn’t long before slave traders see their potential and capture them. Barbara is taken to Rome to be auctioned whilst Ian ends up as a galley slave.

Many days later, when a terrible storm threatens to tear the galley apart, Ian finally gets his chance to escape.
