Time travel meets history in this new drama adaptation by Marty Ross.
'So tell me, Dr Maxwell, if the whole of history lay before you...where would you go? What would you like to witness?'
When Max, a recent ancient history graduate, is offered a mysterious job at St Mary's Historical Research Institute, she quickly comes to realise this isn't any old stuffy research library. At St Mary's the historians don't just study the past - they revisit it.
What begins as an academic exploration of events, such as the Peterloo Massacre, takes a dark and dangerous turn, and the historians of St Mary's soon learn that it's not just history they're fighting....
Follow the tea-soaked disaster magnets of St Mary's as they rattle around history. Because wherever these historians go, chaos is sure to follow.
Starring Gemma Whelan (SAG nominated, Game of Thrones, Gulliver's Travels), Ben Miles (SAG nominated, The Crown, V for Vendetta), Jonathan Bailey (Broadchurch, Leonardo, The Mercy) and Zara Ramm (narrator of the original Chronicles of St Mary's audiobooks), this Audible Original production will transport you to iconic moments throughout history, from the Cretaceous period to the destruction of the Great Library at Alexandria.

One damned thong after another:Audio drama
Slightly slow start but my god does it get going!!
Just Damned Loved (it!)
I suppose it reminded me a bit of Harry Potter in some way, but really quite original n new.
Ben Miles is a cool actor but all the narrators did a great job.
All the time travel scenes were brilliant. There's a scene with a dying soldier in the war which practically made me cry n there's a great sex scene which feels very real n fun.
downloaded this because I loved the Romeo and Juliet adaptation that the writer did and this is very different but just as good. Starts a setting the scene which was a bit slow maybe but then it gets going and it's fantastic!
