London 1963. The first Doctor is forced to leave Earth, after two teachers from his granddaughter's school discover the TARDIS, disguised as a police box, sitting in a junkyard ...

London 1963, The seventh Doctor returns - with new companion Ace in tow and with unfinished business.

Now for the first time, unusual events are unfolding at Coal Hill School and at Totters Lane jumpyard. The Doctor discovers his oldest foes - the Daleks - are on the trail of hidden Time Lord technology. Tecvhnology that he himself left behind on Earth all those years ago. The Daleks are planning to perfect their own time-travel capability, in order to unleash themselves across all of time and space. Can the Doctor - with help of the local military - stop the Daleks stealing Gallifreyan secrets? Or are things much more complicated?

Two opposing Dalek fractions meet in an explosive confrontation, with the fate of the entire Universe at stake ...


Despite its fragile position in the television landscape of 1989, Doctor Who launched into its 26th season with a renewed sense of direction. Script Editor Andrew Cartmel's vision for the series was finally taking shape. It would reveal a darker side of the Doctor's nature, and his companion Ace would be forced to face her personal demons.

The Doctor's time-travelling adventures have always allowed him to rub shoulders with famous characters throughout history, and even resulted in him being mistaken for one or two of them,. Battlefield takes this idea a step further, and offers unprecedented hints of Doctor's off-screen exploits. In a tale where the definition of magic (or science) is ,merely a matter of time, accepting that he is Merlin is hardly a challenge. The revelation, offered with scant explanation, evokes a potent new mystique around the Doctor, and creates a disconcerting sense that he is hiding something from the viewer.

As Ace is left to face a very real demon, it is the Brigadier's act of supreme sacrifice which has the biggest impact. In the face a very real demon, it is the Brigadier's act of supreme sacrifice which has the biggest impact. In the face of such bravery, the slightest hint that the Doctor may be playing with people's lives is all more unsettling.

Combining powerful and evocative mythology with a traditional UNIT tale, Battlefield is a clashing of ancient and modern, pitting girl power against brute force in an action-packed romp that forces us to consider the Doctor in a new light.
