WHEN IN ROME

In 1979 David Whitaker, Doctor Who’s first story editor, revisited some old friends for the benefit of the fanzine 23/11/63. Whitaker’s short story was told from the perspective of the Doctor’s companion Ian Chesterton and claimed to be translated from the TARDIS log...

Did I ever tell you of the time the Doctor landed the ship and then hurtled out of the doors of the TARDIS arrayed in the most extraordinary clothes? He carried a staff and he was swathed in a grubby sheet. Barbara and I followed him. Fortunately we were both wearing cloaks so our clothes were hidden and we didn’t become noticeable in the great throng of Roman citizens.

About Doctor Who Magazine

“History sometimes gives us a terrible shock, and that is because we don’t quite fully understand... We’re all too small to realise its final pattern.” Doctor Who’s first journey in 1963 took viewers back to the Stone Age. Since then the TARDIS has visited many other landmarks in a unique chronicle of the Doctor’s favourite planet. Purely historical stories were once a mainstay of the series, but for more than 50 years significant periods in Earth’s past have provided evocative settings for more fantastical adventures. This unprecedented guide takes a trip back in time with the people, places and classic episodes that are essential parts of Doctor Who history.
