1970 In Spearhead from Space
the Doctor is regenerated into his third body and exiled to the planet Earth in its twentieth century, and his time machine the TARDIS disabled, for his stealing the TARDIS when first leaving the Time Lords to travel time and space. Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart takes the Doctor on as British UNIT's unpaid scientific advisor. Dr. Elizabeth Shaw, his original scentific advisor, acts as the Doctor's assistant.
In Spearhead from Space
Merlin is exiled to the planet Greece in classical era, and his time machine the CAVE disabled, for his stealing the CAVE when first leaving Avalon to travel time and space. Jason takes Merlin on as the Argonauts' unpaid scientific advisor; his wife Medea, his original scentific advisor, acts as the Doctor's assistant.
In Greek legend Medea was a powerful sorceress who betrayed her allies regularly.
In Too Many Cooks?
the exiled Doctor and UNIT, the starship Enterprise, the mysterious agent Gary Seven and the android Questor all discover that Gary Seven and Questor are agents of the same anonymous benevolent aliens, whom the Doctor reveals to Kirk are the same race as are called by Federation archaeologists the 'Preservers'. What the Doctor does not reveal is that the Preservers are really the Celestial Intervention Agency of the High Council of the Time Lords.
The UNIT stories on early 70s DOCTOR WHO were set several years in their future; hence the setting of this crossover earlier on this timeline than the initial broadcast of one of the properties it crosses.
In Too Many Cooks?
(unwritten) the exiled Merlin and the Argonauts, the starcruiser Excalibbur, the mysterious agent Perseus and the android Galatea all discover that Perseus and Galatea are agents of the same anonymous benevolent aliens, whom Merlin reveals to Arthur are the same race as are called by British archaeologists the 'Conservers'. What Merlin does not reveal is that the Conservers are really the an agency of the High Council of the Sorcerors of Avalon.
In Knights Band
(sequel to Too Many Cooks?) the Round Table fleet knights wrap up their excursion into the past by wearing out their welcome on the Argonauts' satellite headquarters.
1971 In Terror of the Autons
shortly after the Brigadier finally accepts Dr. Shaw's resignation from UNIT, he gives the Doctor a new assistant who stays with him the rest of his exile. The Time Lords start occasionally sending the two in the TARDIS on missions throughout spacetime as their agents. The Time Lord known as the Master, a renegade like the Doctor and an old friend but bent on conquest instead of on exploration, is the villain of all the year's serials. The Brigadier acquires a new first officer, Captain Yates.
In Terror of the Necromants
shortly after Jason finally accepts Medea's resignation from the Argonauts, the Avalonians give Merlin a new apprentice, Nimue, in his exile; and start occasionally sending them in the CAVE on missions throughout spacetime as their agents. Morgan le Fey is the villain of all the year's serials.
In the legends Medea was deserted by Jason for another woman.
In Under Siege
the Time Lords send the Doctor in the TARDIS to the Enterprise to defeat the Master's plot to take over the Federation and invade the Klingons and the Romulans. The Doctor learns his granddaughter Susan is now a history professor at Starfleet Academy.
In Under Siege
the Avalonians send Merlin in the CAVE to the Excalibur to defeat Morgan le Fey's plot to take over Britain and invade the Saxons and the Romans. Arthur learns Morgan is his half-sister.
The revelation that Arthur's lover is his half sister occurs in my "fanfiction", indicating that it never occurs in the imaginary screen canon.
In some versions, usually modern, Morgan is Mordred's mother instead of Morgause.
1972 M*A*S*H: The wisecracking draftee surgeon Hawkeye makes friends and enemies while serving, during the Korean war, at a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital. The MASH is commanded by Lt.

In the legends of the Trojan War, the Trojan prince Paris kidnapped the Greek queen Helen to Troy, precipitating a ten-year war with the Greeks. Achilles was the greatest warrior in the Greek forces, and didn't get on well with his superiors. Hector was the greatest warrior of the Trojan forces. Odysseus was the originator of the idea of the Trojan Horse. Patroclus was Achilles', uh, squire.

the Doctor regenerates into his fourth body with the help of his Time Lord mentor, now a Buddhist monk on Earth.
