THE MASSACRE OF ST BARTHOLOMEW’S EVE

THE TARDIS ARRIVES IN PARIS IN AUGUST 1572, a time that excites the Doctor as he believes it will give him the opportunity to meet the scientist Charles Preslin. The Doctor is concerned about leaving Steven Taylor on his own in a strange place, but his companion eventually persuades him that he will be safe for the day and that he should look for Preslin.

As the Doctor tries to locate the scientist, Steven becomes involved with a group of Huguenots led by Nicholas and Gaston, who explain that they are French Protestants who face oppression from the Catholic majority. They come to the aid of Anne, a terrified serving girl who believes she has overheard plans for a mass slaughter of Huguenots in the city.

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.
