The TARDIS materialises in the middle of a holy war between King Richard the Lionheart and the Saracen leader, Saladin, in 12th Century Palestine. As the Doctor, Vicki, Ian and Barbara explore their surroundings, they are suddenly caught up in a Saracen ambush — and Barbara is kidnapped. For the time travellers, intrigue and espionage ensue as they once again become involved in living history. A newly-knighted "Sir Ian of Jaffa" makes haste to find and rescue Barbara, whilst the Doctor finds it difficult to stay out of trouble in the court of the King...

There's something new in you, yet something older than the sky itself. I sense that I can trust you.
