* TroilusAndCressida: King Priam insists that Vicki take the name Cressida. Naturally, she falls in love with his son Troilus, and escapes from Troy with him rather than leaving in the TARDIS.

The TARDIS and occupants arrive on the plains outside the city of Troy in the middle of a fight between Hector and Achilles. Hector is distracted by the Doctor, believing him to be Zeus (he arrived right in the middle of some lightning strikes), and Achilles kills him. The Doctor attempts to leave, but is prevented from doing so by the arrival of Odysseus, who scoffs at the idea of the Doctor being Zeus. He takes him back to camp, and Steven follows to try and rescue him. Meanwhile, the Trojans find the TARDIS and take it inside their city, both the Greeks and the Trojans turn out to inhabit a massive WorldOfSnark, and Menelaus reveals that he's not too keen on having his cheating tart of a wife back anyway.

Meanwhile, Hector captures the TARDIS, believing it to be something of value that would make a nice sacrifice to the Gods. Priestess Cassandra calls him an absolute idiot for not realising the TARDIS is a trap, and that there are probably soldiers inside the thing. (She had a dream earlier about a horse and is pretty upset about the whole business.) Instead, Vicki comes out, and decides to just tell the truth about who she is, which entirely fails to impress the Troyans. King Priam is willing to listen to her, though, although he considers "Vicki" a ridiculous name and makes up the name "Cressida" for her instead.

With the TARDIS gone, the Doctor is forced to admit he is in fact a mortal. Agammemnon orders him killed, but Odysseus forces the Doctor and Steven to tell him the truth about who they really are. He accepts their story and, since he's not quite as clever as the legends make him out to be, he gives them two days to come up with a way for him to capture Troy and end the decade-long war. The Doctor briefly considers the whole wooden horse business but discards it as myth. They come up with a plan: Steven, pretending to Diomedes pretending to be Achilles, intentionally gets himself captured by a very reluctant Paris and ends up in Troy. This backfires immediately when Vicki blurts out his name and they're both thrown into the cells as Greek spies.

Added DiffLines:

* TonightSomeoneDies: The cliffhanger of part two is Cassandra denouncing Vicki and Steven as spies, and demanding they be put to death; a caption then announces the title of part three -- "Death of a Spy". Part three introduces and then kills off an actual spy, while Steven and Vicki both survive to the end.

* AscendedExtra: The novelization elevates Cyclops, Odysseus's servant, to narrator and a much more omnipresent character. Not only does he survive, but [[spoiler: he's blinded by the blow that killed him in the TV show, and goes on to become the blind poet Homer]].

After trying to avoid it, the Doctor gives up and gives Odysseus the idea for the wooden horse. The Greeks invade Troy, and during the final battle Steven is wounded and assisted to the TARDIS by Katarina, a handmaiden of Cassandra. Vicki stays behind with Troilus while the Doctor, Steven and Katarina leave in the TARDIS.

Much like The Gunfighters, The Myth Makers is largely a comedy until the MoodWhiplash of the final episode.

The Troilus, Paris' brother, has meanwhile developed a bit of a crush on Vicki and genuinely believes that she's some kind of witch. She tries to tell him the truth, since the crush is mutual, but all her claims of not having any magic are moot when the Greeks invade Troy, suddenly disappear and during leave behind nothing but a horse.

Vicki and Troilus decide to take their chances with the enraged victims, while Katarina firmly believes that she's been sacrificed to the Gods and that the TARDIS is the afterlife. The Doctor doesn't bother correcting her.
