Re: Last Classic Who Story you watched

The Rescue - nice little piece to introduce the new companion. Not bad, not a classic, but just... a nice little piece.

The Romans - wonderfully underrated classic that gives us the first example of DW so perfectly balancing being comedy and drama, with great high-points of both. And more Barbara pwnage as well. Derek Francis is great as Nero, there's lovely comic acting, the Doctor gets to be physical, there's much about how the Doctor goes in and solves problems (even though this hasn't actually happened much yet) and the Doctor tries hard (but fails) to not look as if he thinks it's cool to fuck about with history...
