but they do still have historical shows, including stories about WW2, Agatha Christie, ancient Venice, etc.
Except all those episodes are really about the 'aliens'. The history, like the future periods, is just a backdrop.
Indeed, there hasn't been a "pure historical" since The Fifth Doctor's Black Orchid
, which is one of my minor beefs with the current run of the show. Don't get me wrong, I love what we do get, but it would be very nice to have a story in vein of such classics as The Aztecs
, The Reign of Terror
, and Marco Polo
