Summary Edit

The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams arrive on Earth on a Mediterranean island, some two and a half millennia ago — the Golden Age of epic poetry and tales of heroes, gods and monsters. They are soon spotted by a giant Cyclops, who attempts to stop them.

The Doctor sprains his ankle. Amy carries him away while Rory creates a distraction. Shelter for the Doctor and Amy turns out to be a cave that is plugged by more Cyclops (or as the Doctor tells Amy, the correct plural is "Cyclopes"). Having outrun his pursuers Rory tries to release the Doctor and Amy from the Cyclopes' larder, but the stone plug is just too big.

Insulting a passing Cyclops, Rory throws mud in its eye and teases it into throwing a rock that he narrowly avoids, but one that smashes the rock plugging the cave. His ankle having healed enough, the Doctor leads the run back to the safety of the TARDIS — leaving the heroes of ancient Greece to sort out the Cyclopes.
