Doctore (David McIntosh)

Dominius (Tom Bell)


Electric Ray for ITV2, 14 September 2017 to present


We've had a papyrus scroll from the ITV press office. It says:

Eight 21st century lads are to be transported back to the Roman Empire to see if they can cut it as gladiators.
The handsome boys will fight it out with help from their loving girlfriends. They may have the muscles but do these lads have what it takes to go down in history? Cameras will follow eight modern day couples as they're transported to an ancient world where they'll live and fight like gladiators did 2000 years ago.
Along the way there’ll be blood, sweat, tears and plenty of laughs. However, only the very best will make it through to the Emperor's Games where one of them will emerge victorious and take home the Emperor's gold.

This synopsis now repeats in classical Latin.

Nos enim accepti librum fiscellam ad scaenae officii Libera Televisifica. Inquit:

Ex Saeculum XXVIII AUC, octo pueri sunt Imperio Romano revehi si non gladiatores secabit.
Pueri pulchrii erit pugnare cum auxilio ea amicae ab amandi. Habeant musculorum, sed quid pueri quid horum occidere historia capit? Camerae sequentur octo dies modern copulat qui erant in mundo antiquo deferatur, sunt vivat pugnabitque sicut gladiatores fecit MM annis ante.
Per viam sanguis, sudore, et lacrimis multa iocosa erit. Autem, tantum optimum ipso erit ad eam Imperatoris ludis ubi unum vinceret, et auri Imperatore tolle.
