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!

    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...

    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...

    Friendly fire, indeed. I think this was one of the most charming of the Christmas stories that has come out of St. Mary's, and it's not just because I love the hell out of Markham. And as expected, th...

    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...
