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!

    Another of the amusing Chronicles of St Mary’s in which a bunch of disaster magnets are sent back in time to verify historical facts. This is a substantial short told from the point of view of Markh...

    I did enjoy this, a novelty to hear from another character's perspective and perhaps quite a brave punt from Jodi Taylor to introduce this method of writing for future books (perhaps she is thinking h...

    Ending 2016 in true St. Mary's fashion - in chaos. Ms Taylor does it again. I really enjoyed the point of view of Markham; it ended up being just as funny as the others. Markham' haphazard attempts at...

    I've been looking forward to this one for quite a while. The perspective of Markham was jarring but not unexpectedly so. We were in Dr. Bairstow's head in Very First Damn Thing and anything but Max se...

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.
