The Time Meddler


The TARDIS lands on a beach in England. The Doctor, Vicki and new companion Steven discover a Viking helmet, and deduce they have arrived in the past. Whilst Steven and Vicki scale the cliff, the Doctor opts for a far more gentle path.

In the woods above the cliffs, Steven and Vicki find an abandoned modern wristwatch. The Doctor investigates a nearby monastery, only to discover more anachronisms.

As the local villages are attacked by invading Vikings, the Doctor realizes that they are a few weeks away from the famous battle of Hastings in 1066. Who is the Meddling Monk, and what is his interest in the time travelers?
