Materialising in Four (days)

These mythological storylines would have been at least generally known to audiences through popular sources such as movies, as with Ray Harryhausen’s famous film adaptation of Jason and the Argonauts (1963), and through the increasing attention to classical civilization and culture in school curricula over the 1970s. And in both instances, in case the implicit parallels between the myths and the stories weren’t clear to the audience, the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) alludes to the fact that he was present at the actual mythical events, and that the monomythic patterns repeat themselves in the distant future. Once again the Doctor is revealed to have taken part in the “historical” events of classical myth.
