Intro: When in Rome, we are told, do as the Romans do. But, what if the Romans do it to you first? We are about to find out if The Doctor and his companions are capable of more than fiddling around as they meet "The Romans."

Outro: While The Doctor and his companions were certainly inconvenienced this night, I'll wager they weren't as burned up as the Romans. Next week, another sticky wicket as the TARDIS is drawn by an unknown force to "The Web Planet." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
