History must take its course... The TARDIS materialises in the middle of a holy war between King Richard the Lionheart and the Saracen leader, Saladin, in 12th Century Palestine. As the Doctor, Vicki, Ian and Barbara explore their surroundings, they are suddenly caught up in a Saracen ambush - and Barbara is kidnapped. For the time travellers, intrigue and espionage ensue as they once again become involved in living history. A newly-knighted 'Sir Ian of Jaffa' makes haste to find and rescue Barbara, whilst the Doctor finds it difficult to stay out of trouble in the court of the King... This classic adventure, only two episodes of which survive in the BBC film archive, stars William Hartnell as the Doctor, William Russell as Ian, Jacqueline Hill as Barbara, and Maureen O'Brien as Vicki. Amongst the guest cast are Julian Glover as Richard, with Jean Marsh as his sister Joanna.

    " Fantastic! Another gripping historical from early Who. "

    " Beautifully written, but tremendously boring. Sorry. I skipped great passages, marvelling at how well-written the introduction and the ending were, but despairing at how pointlessly interminable the rest of it was. Reading others' opinions, it appears I'm in something of a minority. "

    " I really enjoyed the book. Not literature, but a fun, fast paced adventure story with some nice little debates inside, which was nice to see. "

    " Good book loved the medieval and king Richard the lion heart reference and learning a bit about the crusades one of my favorite old Doctor who books so far "

    " One of the most richly told and historically brilliant stories in Doctor Who...and novelized to the power of 10! Aside from being the series' first script editor and guiding hand for new authors...THIS book is David Whitaker's greatest contribution to the show he helped nurture. "

    " Captures that era of Who very well, and is also pretty well written. Didn't blow me away, but I had a pleasant enough time with it. "

    " I enjoyed the story although very different from the modern Dr Who series that I started with. This first Dr is a little boring, & the story revolves more around his companions. "

    " Shame he dies in the end. "
