  • The Fires of Vulcan
  • Just War (Benny audio (and book for that matter)
  • Doctor Who and the Pirates
  • The Council of Nicaea
  • Other Lives
  • The Settling
  • Circular Time: Summer
  • 100- 100 BC
  • The Angel of Scutari
  • Farewell, Great Macedon
  • The Wrath of the Iceni
  • Voyage to the New World
  • The Peterloo Massacre
  • The Behemoth
  • The Great White Hurricane
  • The Barbarians and the Samurai
  • The Phoenicians
  • Last of the Romanovs
  • The Hollow Crown
  • Resistance
  • The Glorious Revolution
  • The Emperor of Eternity
  • A Town Called Fortune

I had your ‘past’ list on the guide and just tried to remember which were and weren’t with a bit of cross-checking with the ones I’ve reviewed for my blog (which has been mainly history-set stories). I’m sure I’ve missed a few, though.

You mean to tell me The Kingmaker doesn’t qualify? (jokin’)

Is there any way I can just hook your brain directly into the site?! :exploding_head:

For the right fee…

Perhaps I will use… The Mind Probe…

No! Not the mind probe!

(I thank you, (takes bow)).


It kinda does though if you think about it, right? The only sci-fi element present is the TARDIS crew, isn’t it?

The Nine-Day Queen is so good!

I discounted it due to the extensive use of time travel - and the robot from the publishing company.


Ah, understandable :smile:
