THE CRUSADE

LANDING IN A WOOD IN TWELFTH-CENTURY Palestine, the Doctor and his companions blunder into the scene of an ambush: King Richard I of England and several of his crusader knights are under attack by a party of Saracens, led by one El Akir. The so-called Lionheart is saved when one of Richard’s men, William des Preaux, claims to be the King – but schoolteacher Barbara is also captured by the Saracens, and the pair are taken off to Ramla, where Richard’s rival Saladin has made his encampment. Des Preaux tries to pass Barbara off as the King’s sister, but Saladin’s brother Saphadin is enamoured of the real Joanna, and sees through their deception right away.

About Doctor Who Magazine

“History sometimes gives us a terrible shock, and that is because we don’t quite fully understand... We’re all too small to realise its final pattern.” Doctor Who’s first journey in 1963 took viewers back to the Stone Age. Since then the TARDIS has visited many other landmarks in a unique chronicle of the Doctor’s favourite planet. Purely historical stories were once a mainstay of the series, but for more than 50 years significant periods in Earth’s past have provided evocative settings for more fantastical adventures. This unprecedented guide takes a trip back in time with the people, places and classic episodes that are essential parts of Doctor Who history.
