Tim has an eccentric uncle by the name of Arthur King who lives in a medieval castle with his family. He is going on holiday and needs Tim to guard the castle, which he appropriately calls Camelot, for him. Tim gets his fellow Goodies to help and they decide, like the castle's owners, to live in the medieval style, complete with costumes and rules of chivalry. Graeme, of course, soon gets bored and starts scheming on something they can do to pass the time. Soon, they are embroiled in a fierce battle with a sneaky land developer, who wants Camelot - which the boys have now turned into a popular tourist attraction - for his own. Written by E. E. Buchanan
