Let’s meet the Romans of  Doctor Who – The Eaters of Light.  Do we know which are these famed conquers of ancient Britain on?  Should we trust them?  We’re not sure yet, but we can introduce them to you. Meet Marcus (AARON PHAGURA), Vitus (SAM ADEWUNMI), Thracius (BEN HUNTER) and Lucius (BRIAN VERNEL).

 

Synopsis: 

A long time ago, the ninth legion of the Roman army vanished into the mists of Scotland. Bill (Pearl Mackie)  has a theory about what happened, and the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) has a time machine. But when they arrive in ancient Aberdeenshire, what they find is a far greater threat than any army. In a cairn, on a hillside, is a doorway leading to the end of the world…

Doctor Who – The Eaters of Light airs on BBC One and BBC America on Saturday 17th June.

    • At least one Roman emperor was black. And you forget the full geographic spread of the empire. There were even people from what is now Iran with temples along Hadrian’s Wall and in Londinium for the cult of Mithras.

  1. There were a number of black Roman soldiers in the UK at the time. http:/www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/pathways/blackhistory/early_times/romans.htm

    The Roman army was a lot more diverse than you think. They “drafted” from around the world.
