‘How do you think it would affect galactic history? Think of the tyrants of the Middle Ages; imagine them roaming the Universe!’
The TARDIS materializes on a deserted Northumbrian beach. The Doctor says that he and his two new companions have arrived in the eleventh century — but Steven finds a modern wristwatch in the nearby forest.
However, the year is AD 1066 and the Doctor’s arrival has been noticed by a mysterious monk who recognizes the TARDIS as a time machine and its owner as a threat to his carefully laid plans.
The Time Meddler was first broadcast in 1965 and starred William Hartnell as the first incarnation of the Doctor; it has recently been shown again on BBC2. This novelization is by Nigel Robinson, who has written a number of Doctor Who books including Timewyrm: Apocalypse, one of the New Adventures series.
