Ever wondered how it all began? It's two years since the final victory at the Battersea Barricades. The fighting might be finished, but for Dr Bairstow, just now setting up St Mary's, the struggle is only beginning. How will he assemble his team? From where will his funding come? How can he overcome the massed ranks of the Society for the Protection of Historical Buildings? How do stolen furniture, a practical demonstration at the Stirrup Charge at Waterloo, students' alcohol-ridden urine, a widowed urban guerrilla, a young man wearing exciting knitwear, and four naked security guards all combine to become the St Mary's of the future?… (mehr)

This is the first thing I've read in the series. Don't start here. I think the story would be more enjoyable if you know who the various characters are first. ( )

Some humor, not much zaniness. ( )

Having just come back from the future and having just discovered, belatedly, that I have, indeed, become a huge damned fanboy, I decided to jump on the short stories with another fangirl (Trish) in order to decidedly *NOT* eat Markham's culinary delights, but rather, to devour Dr. Bairstow's gathering of the troops.

Was this smattering glaze of interesting and horrible characters worth eating? Oh, you better believe it. Was the plot anything more than a roll-call and a delightful introduction to a large cast? Um... perhaps not... but that didn't stop me from enjoying every word and and nodding in satisfaction with the sure knowledge that everyone will get their day in the sun... even more than what we see here!

And while our MC Max only has a walk-on roll in two distinct time periods and situations, it was more than enough.

We know the story, after all. Or, if you're one of those weirdos who are reading this in the order implied by the number system, you will at least get the feel of the grounds and understand, right off the cricket bat, that something really fishy *is* going on.

Totally recommend. It was a blast. ( )

This short story in the St Mary's series focuses on the very beginning of the institute when Dr. Bairstow is trying to secure funding for the project and try to convince them of the usefulness of it all. While this all takes place, some series favourites also happen to show up at the same time, as tends to be the case with important historical events. However, I didn't like it as much as I did the rest of the series, possibly because said characters only play a small role. Don't get me wrong, Dr. Bairstow is a very interesting character, but shines best in small doses, or quite possibly, when his silence says it all.

While very short indeed, I would certainly recommend it to fans of the series who which to remain with St Mary's just a little bit longer. ( )

One of the most important events in the history of mankind — after the discovery of fire, the development of the wheel, and the invention of chocolate, of course — occurred in London on an overcast chilly rainy afternoon, and it is entirely typical that it should have been witnessed only by two bedraggled pigeons and a scrawny cat.

Silence fell. And showed no signs of getting up again.
'I beg your pardon. I am sometimes afflicted with a little deafness. I did not hear your last question.'
'I did not utter it, sir.'
'I am so glad we understand each other.'
'You know the saying, "Those who can — do. Those who can't — teach." And those who never had any idea what it was in the first place are members of my Senior Faculty.'
