Friday and Saturday at Midnight - The Time Meddler - movie version
The 1st Doctor, Vicki, Steven, and Steven's teddy bear land in 11th Century England on the eve of the Norman invasion. There's just a few problems or two. Why would Vikings have wristwatches, atomic bazookas be hidden in the forest, a monastery have a gramophone record in it, and a Monk be plotting to lure Vikings into a trap? Could someone be making unauthorized time travel? About 90 minutes.
