(New time due to Robot Wars.) Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart is called out of retirement to help U*N*I*T when the 7th Doctor, Ace, two armies of knights with hyperactive weapons, and Morgaine the evil witch all converge on Cornwall at an inconvenient moment. But the Brigadier is not as young as he used to be. If not careful, this mission could be his last. And that would make his wife Doris very annoyed with him.
