Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 2nd October 1998:
WCET 48 in Cincinnati, Ohio offers the movie version of Battlefield Saturday late night at 11PM. The 7th Doctor and Ace arrive in the near future, where warriors from an alternate dimension have shown up to fight over King Arthur. And they all think the Doctor is Merlin. Nicholas Courtney reprises his role as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. Jean Marsh plays Morgaine. Interestingly, Nicholas Courtney's first Doctor Who appearance was in The Daleks' Master Plan, where his character was killed by the character Jean Marsh was playing in the story. Bessie plays herself. 90 minutes.
