Spartacus was a slave who led the uprising against the Roman Empire in the 1st century BC. His wife was Calpurnia.

Jamie McCrimmon, Ben Jackson and Polly Wright became caught up in the rebellion and helped Spartacus as much as they could before they had to let history take its course.

Ben and Polly had seen a film about him. (PROSE: The Slave War) Actor Kirk Douglas starred in the film Spartacus. When Ian Chesterton was forced to fight Delos as a gladiator, he felt his situation was similar to Douglas's character's and recalled how in the film the two combatants spared one anothers' lives and successfully turned on their captors.
