The Spear of Destiny was the third Puffin eshort released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.

Publisher's summary

The Third Doctor and Jo Grant are trying to track down the magical spear of Odin when they find themselves caught up in a vicious battle between two Viking tribes. But one of the Vikings is even more dangerous than he appears to be. Can the Doctor stop the spear getting into the wrong hands before it's too late?
