Summary

A 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.

Based on a TV script by best-selling novelist Ben Aaronovitch, Battlefield kicked off the final series of 1980s Doctor Who.
