Publisher's summary Edit

'Is this honour? Is this war?'

Battlefield (1989) is a clash of mythologies, between the radical, progressive, Doctor Who of the late 1980s and the chivalric national myth of King Arthur. It therefore evokes Doctor Who's own past golden age, the UNIT era, and identifies the Doctor with another mentor figure, Merlin. Emotionally literate, politically engaged and thematically complex, it creates a convincing near future in which to explore its questions of pacifism, patriarchy and predestination.
