Sanctuary, 1995, David A. McIntee
A proper historical adventure, a relative rarity in Doctor Who after the first Doctor’s era, with no aliens or cosmic forces or strange intelligences. Just the Doctor and Benny, trapped in 13th Century France, solving a murder while trying to escape the coming murder of the Cathares who have been sheltering refugees from the war between competing Popes. Benny falls in love with a disgraced knight in a excellently written romance that ends in tragedy.

  1. If they’re in 13th century France, why does the TARDIS look like some sort of chinoiserie gazebo?

  2. Dorian says:

    That would be the “jade pagoda”, a sort of escape pod/life boat for the TARDIS introduced in the novel range.
