In medieval England, a brave knight named Sir William de Mornay sets out on a quest slay a ferocious dragon that is terrorising the local villagers… The present: Abby is furious to learn that her brother Jack has given Rex away to one of his friends, as payment for his debt in a poker game; she is unaware that Sarah and Connor have just found the creature for sale online on eBay... Elsewhere, an anomaly opens in the middle of a car breaker’s yard and the dragon bursts through. A startled crane operator tries to hold the monster at bay by dropping old cars onto it, but he is stopped by the arrival of Danny and the team, who realise that the creature, a harmless herbivore known as a Dracorex, is merely wounded and frightened. Danny, Abby, Connor and Sarah attempt to herd the dinosaur back through the anomaly, but the creature bolts in panic when the knight on horseback suddenly gallops out of the portal. While Abby and Captain Becker drive off to capture the injured Dracorex, Danny and Connor set off in pursuit of Sir William. Reaching the nearby town of Kingston-Upon-Thames, they find that their search for the knight in shining armour is not as easy as they had hoped: the town is in the middle of a carnival, and its busy streets are crammed with people dressed in extravagant costumes. Meanwhile, Sarah decides to carry out some research of her own; having bought a medieval costume from a market stall, she returns to the scrap yard and passes through the portal, travelling back to the Middle Ages. Back in the present, Becker and Abby track the Dracorax to a country farm, where they manage to sedate the creature. Danny and Conner finally locate Sir William, but the knight believes himself to be in Hell, and that they are demons – he promptly renders them unconscious and then sets out to rid the town from any other “demons” he can find…
