Fanciful rewrite of English history... a concept that could have become a really good book but didn't.

Thin characters, silly dialogue (suggest a drinking game for every time a character says "spot of bother"), contrived lectures on the Tube about Kings Henry VII and VII (and their pals) and uneven plotting combine to make for a disappointing read/listen.

On the plus side, London-philes get lots of historical and geographical factoids.
