TARDIS Histories No.1

Regular readers will know that I recently set up a second blog devoted to my passion for History (especially local history, which in my case means London). I have now devised a means to link the two together - since there is obviously an awful lot of History to be found in Doctor Who.
Starting with 1964's Marco Polo, I am going to be looking at the historical context behind the Doctor's travels through Earth's history.
In my story reviews I have always tried to add a little bit of the historical background in the "Things you might like to know..." section, but this allows me to delve a little deeper. Hope you enjoy.


  1. I'm guessing there isn't a whole lot of information to contribute to 100,000 BC. :p

    1. Might actually mix the stories up a bit rather than do them in broadcast order. The Tribe of Gum might get a post yet.
