About the Story

The Warlord is a de-branded version of BBC Soft's Doctor Who and the Warlord (DWATW).

Three years after the commercial release of DWATW, Acorn User magazine published The Warlord on a "listings disc":

Which objects? Well, that's for you to discover! The first part of the adventure is set in the future in Tim Trevyl's time machine; the second part is set on the night before the battle of Waterloo in Belgium."
