In the Barbarians and the Samurai, the Doctor and the TARDIS crew arrive in early 19th Century Japan which had still banned Westerners. They quickly are hunted by the Samurai. However, when the Doctor and Barbara are captured they find themselves in the midst of political intrigue.

This is a solidly researched story that brings this era to life in a realistic way. The characters are great. The Japanese Characters really fit the time and believable but without being predictable which leads to a scrip that often surprises. Overall, this is an outstanding historical.
