014 The Crusade

It has long been my naive personal belief that in the world of Doctor Who, adventures that occur in the future are always more interesting/entertaining than their historical counterparts.  However, with the lineup of stories in Season 2 up to and including The Crusade, I am seriously beginning to question the validity of my own opinion.
