Okay, historical fiction is not usually intended to be entirely accurate, and Doctor Who is always to be enjoyed for its humor and adventure. Still, for a story that is clearly trying to be about cultural understanding, there is a problem. I just can't get past the repeated references to the Muslims drinking wine! This is just too wrong for me. Yes, there are some interesting characters and some fun scenes, and the narration is quite well done. I just cannot get past the one major cultural gaff of Saladin and his men serving wine.
