Swords, knights in armour, pitched battles, futuristic technology and ancient demons -- classic Seventh Doctor story Battlefield has it all!

Welcome back to Pledge Break, the show where two old friends talk about the Doctor Who version of history and the history of Doctor Who!

In addition to all the Arthurian goodness, Battlefield is full to bursting of high-quality fanservice, including the last appearance of the Brigadier, cryptic hints about the Doctor's identity, a cameo by Bessie and the return of a classic co-star. So full, in fact, that it's our longest episode yet!
