Summary Edit

To prevent a statue being delivered to Cleopatra, the Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams arrive on board a sailing ship in the Mediterranean Sea, 39 BC. The Roman crew are intent on delivering their cargo from Marcus Antonius — a golden figure in the shape of a man. They are about to throw the stowaways overboard when the statue (a Gold Assassin from the court of Xones) is re-awakened.

Having crashed on Earth, the Assassin mistakenly believes Cleopatra is the Empress of Altari, whom it has been programmed to kill. The Roman crew are swatted away by the powerful Assassin. Amy and Rory find a casket of mercury used by Cleopatra for her make-up. They get close enough to the Assassin to empty its contents. The mercury dissolves the gold.

With its circuitry exposed, the Assassin is slowly dissolved. Worried about not having a gift to deliver to Cleopatra, the Doctor offers to make a trip to the planet of Voga and pick something up for them – along with some more mercury.
