Doc­tor Who

ad­ven­ture / 6.45pm / BBC1

TV Times - - SaturdayHighlights -

this ad­ven­ture should please a few history schol­ars, though they might not buy into its con­clu­sions. One of the big mys­ter­ies of an­cient times is the dis­ap­pear­ance of the Ninth Le­gion of elite Ro­man sol­diers in the wilds of Scot­land. History buff Bill has read every book on the sub­ject and wants to know what hap­pened, so the Doc­tor takes her and Nar­dole back to an­cient Aberdeen­shire – only to find a ma­raud­ing alien, which may pro­vide un­ortho­dox his­tor­i­cal an­swers. The trio also run into what re­mains of the Ninth, led by teen sol­dier Lu­cius, and a tribe of Picts led by feisty young war­rior woman Kar. Can the Doc­tor unite these sworn en­e­mies to de­feat a dan­ger­ous alien? HHHH nc
