Summary

Toby Longworth reads this suspenseful novelisation of a classic adventure for the Seventh Doctor and Ace.

A squad of UNIT troops is escorting a nuclear missile through the English countryside, whilst nearby knights in armour are fighting battles with broadswords, guns and grenades.

The Doctor arrives on the scene and meets two old friends: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and Bessie, the souped-up Edwardian roadster.

Why do the knights address him as 'Merlin', and what is the power of the sword that Ace retrieves from the bottom of a lake? Will the wicked Morgaine carry out her threat to destroy the world?

Toby Longworth reads Marc Platt's novelisation of a TV script by bestselling novelist Ben Aaronovitch, first published in 1991.

Better then TV Version

fond memories of watching this story in 1989, recent rewatch was ok, but this audio version of the novelisation has so much more to give that the TV version would not have had the time or budget to pull off. A great listen.
