More about Doctor Who
More about this episode
This is a four-part serial, first broadcast between 15 December 1973 - 5th January 1974. A brief and somewhat spoiler-ish summary of the plot: an alien time traveller gets stranded on earth in the Middle Ages, a castle is destroyed and the Doctor finds a new companion.
What we get here is, basically, Doctor Who as Monty Python would have done it - excellent and entertaining dialogue, an absurd story and a medieval world that is sheer caricature.
