The Horse Awakens (Venerating “The Myth Makers”)

The Horse Awakens (Venerating “The Myth Makers”)

What exactly is the Doctor’s attitude towards changing history? With all the pure historicals of the era, William Hartnell’s Doctor actually has a lot to say about this. While The Aztecs makes clear his reluctance to interfere in history, The Myth Makers shows his bemusement at becoming a part of it — and his regret at seeing the consequences of that participation. It’s a surprisingly mature takeaway from an otherwise lighter take on the Trojan War, one that at times rivals The Romans for moments of comedy. Even when they’re being tortured, everyone looks like they’re having fun — so much so that Vicki stays behind. That’s really committing to the bit.

Commentary for The Myth Makers begins at 28:42.
