My Name is Markham


Like a smaller and much scruffier Greta Garbo – finally – Markham speaks!

It’s Christmas and time for the first (and almost certainly last) St Mary’s Annual Children’s Christmas Party – attendance compulsory, by order of Dr Bairstow. Discovered practising his illegal reindeer dance and poo-dropping routine, our hero, along with fellow disaster-magnets Peterson and Maxwell, is despatched to Anglo-Saxon England to discover the truth about Alfred and the cakes.

In his own words, our hero reveals Major Guthrie’s six-point guide to a successful assignment and the Security Section’s true opinion of the History Department. And of historians in general. And of one historian in particular.

And, just to be clear, it is time travel, for God’s sake. Forget all that pretentious ‘investigating major historical events in contemporary time’ rubbish.

This is history without the capital ‘H’. Because this is the way the Security Section rolls!

    3.5 stars really but only because it's a short story, I don't like giving short stories 5s because they are too short! :)But oh it was great but it didn't answer the burning question from the end of t...

    Cute little story. Had a hard time trying to remember it was Markham narrating (and not Max, as per usual), but other than that, it was a fairly typical short little taste of St. Mary's. Fun for fans....

    Not as funny as I expected a book about Markham to be. Nevertheless, I loved to see a jump from a different perspective. ...

    The disaster magnets of St. Mary's are back. Chaos and hilarity reign. A children's Christmas party is hosted at St. Mary's and our Christmas trio, Max, Peterson, and Markham are off on a quick trip t...

    Another fun installment from St. Mary's which this time involved a trip to see Alfred the Great. A few formatting issues with my Kindle copy but easy enough to overlook....

And if it's raining, there's no chance.Habitually tongue-tied when asked to talk about herself, she gets round this by describing herself as tall, incredibly beautiful, witty and technically proficient.
