This double-pack is occasioned only by the fact that these two stories were made back-to-back. However, it's a neat little window on "Doctor Who"'s radical early days -- a two-episode outer-space character piece set 500 years in the future, followed by a 4-episode romp through Ancient Rome. "Doctor Who"'s genius then and now is its willingness to try absolutely any form of drama, making it up as it goes along and succeeding most of the time.

"The Rescue" is basically a filler episode designed to introduce a replacement character for original companion Susan. Vicki (Maureen O'Brien) is a teenage orphan from the 25th Century. Marooned on the planet Dido, Vicki finds herself menaced by a reptilian biped with the unlikely name of Koquilion.

When it comes down to it, I love the Roman episodes. I love Roman history, I love ancient history, and I enjoy a good historical drama made by the BBC.

The fact that the characters are split up gives us three story lines for the price of one. Jacqueline Hill and William Russell's characters are shown as smart, brave, and funny. They hold their own even without the Doctor around.
I also think Maureen O'Brien does a very good Vicki - she... Read more
This was a real twist as I expected from Doctor Who marathon behind the scenes clips that The Romans would be the better of the two. However I found upon watching it that while The Romans was a interesting story where Barbara is sold as a slave and has to escape on her own as doctor learns nothing about it I find The Rescue that first introduces character Vicki to be much more enjoyable story.
