History Without a TARDIS updated

Fans of The Sarah Jane Adventures might be interested in taking a look at the latest post on my new history blog:

It tells the story of the Nine Day Queen - Lady Jane Grey - who featured in the SJA story Lost In Time. The Sarah Jane Adventures is one of the few places where her story has been featured on TV, as I mention in my post. As I have stated before, Doctor Who (and its off-shoots) have often covered periods of history that mainstream media generally overlooks, in favour of the more populist stuff. The recent Wolf Hall on the BBC was very good, with an exceptional performance by Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell, but it did simply regurgitate the oft-filmed story of Anne Boleyn.
