Myth Makers…oh jeebus how do i describe this one. Its awesome but a kick to the feels. Vicki leaving by choice is sad. At the same time instead of continuing on traveling with Steven and The Doctor she chose to stay in the past and fell in love with Trollious shows how mature she is. She went from the orphan on Dido to the wife of a Prince. Vicki has come so far. It is a shame its missing because its really good. The Doctor pretends to be a god, Steven is a Greek solider and Vicki takes the name Cressida. The actual story of Cressida is where Cressida cheats on Trollious. I don’t see Vicki doing that. She truly loved Trollious and would never stay in destroyed Troy if she did not love him. I heard she hugged the ship goodbye which is just so cute. As if she was saying goodbye to her home. To add to that its interesting to see the Doctor go from “NO Don’t go!” with Barbara and Ian to allowing Vicki to leave. By doing this it shows how different he has become. He’ll miss her but he knows she’s happy and he respects her decision. Steven being worried about Vicki like a worried Big brother. One of the reasons those two are my favorites!
I always wonder how she adjusted to life in Ancient Greek times. I have even written head cannons about it. I would love it if The Doctor returned to visit her again. Like she has kids or something. They talk and maybe have once last adventure together. But either way i loved this story even though Vicki my favorite character aka the most adorable character ever leaves.
“This planet doesn’t need more ‘successful’ people but is in desperate need of more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of every shape and form. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these needs have very little to do with success - the way our culture has defined it.”

I’m a writer and this is what I do no matter what name we put to it. Year by year, the world is turning into a darker and stranger place than any of us could want. This is the only thing I do that has potential to shine a little further than my immediate surroundings. For me, each story is a little candle held up to the dark of night, trying to illuminate the hope for a better world where we all respect and care for each other.
[In Stagecoach] Ford introduces Wayne with a highly uncharacteristic visual flourish: the camera darts toward Wayne in a rapid dolly shot, as the actor, standing in front of what appears to be a projected background, twirls his rifle in a grand, theatrical gesture. The shot briefly goes out of focus as Ford’s cinematographer, Bert Glennon, struggles to keep up with the change in scale — an effect that may have been accidental, but which grants Wayne an almost supernatural aura, as his face emerges from the blur to fill the screen in a dominating close-up.
This is mythmaking, pure and simple
