The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

Doing Time (2019 novel)

    Introducing The Time Police, the brand-new series by international bestselling author, Jodi Taylor - an irresistible spinoff from the much-loved Chronicles of St Mary's series. Perfect reading for fans of Doctor Who, Ben Aaronovitch and Jasper Fforde.

At some time in the future, the secret of time-travel became available to all. Chaos ensued as people sought to take advantage. Because there will always be nutters who want to change history...

And so the Time Police were formed. Internationally sanctioned thugs whose task it was to keep the timeline straight by any and all means possible. And they succeeded. The Time Wars are over. The Time Police won. But who will win the peace?

Doing Time follows three hapless new Time Police recruits - Jane, Luke and Matthew - as they try to navigate their first year on the beat. It's all going to be fine. Obviously.

Comment:Unfortunately, Doing Time (2019) by Jodi Taylor was a significant disappointment to me. While the characters were reasonably interesting and well written, the use of time travel was entirely for setting and is a great example of failure to fire Chekhov's gun. If a teleporting box had replaced the time machines, and a shift from historical site to some other "exotic" local, it wouldn't have changed anything. I expected there to be some use of time travel to help or hinder, to be part of the plot. As a counter point, take Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure where a surprisingly intricate use of time travel to get Bill and Ted out of trouble and achieve their goals post-facto was used.Warning: This is a work in progress. -- Fritz. (e)
