Far too much jousting, jesting and lute’ing.
It’s a quarter past lunchtime, or the year 1215 as some would have it, and the not-so-good King John has rocked up at some Lord’s castle to squeeze a bit more tax out of him. The Lord politely declines, the King’s champion gets pissed off (well he is a hot-blooded Frenchman, allegedly) and, before you can say “I hope this doesn’t turn into a boring joust scene”, there’s a boring joust scene happening between the Lord’s son and Frenchie McNoAccent.
What better time and place for the TARDIS to arrive than slap bang in the middle of the joust! It’s okay though, as no one seems that freaked out by a big blue, wooden box appearing out of nowhere and then some weird looking people stepping out of it. Probably demons after all. Head Demon, aka The Doctor, soon works out that King John is most likely an imposter and a very short quest begins to find out who or what he really is and what devilish scheme is underfoot.
Not in this serial, but here’s the robot pic that Derek sent in (check out his mini below) — thanks very much, Derek!
