Upcoming Dr Who audio: "Last of the Romanovs"
« on: November 17, 2019, 07:37:24 AM »
Last of the Romanovs by Jonathan Barnes
The TARDIS lands on Earth near to an eerie and familiar house... with the only witness a regal man watching from inside through a broken window. Leaving the ship the crew immediately find themselves in trouble - because they have landed in Ekaterinburg early in the twentieth century. The man inside the house is Nicholas, the last Tsar of Russia, imprisoned with his family... and one of the most notorious crimes in history is just about to happen.

I'm not familiar with Doctor Who, but don't they change history a little bit but not fully? Or is it completely?

If this audio-book ends with any of the Romanovs dying, especially the children, I'm going to throw hands with this new Doctor Who team and the bloody writer.

Although I will be fine with the team helping them escape, beating their would-be-murderers asses (a thing we all want to do) and letting them go into hiding. Make the world believe the Romanovs are dead in the Doctor Who universe; better alternative then the one we're living.

And if not...see with something like this, you can't just write about leaving them to their fates. This is the problem with that live action Anastasia with time travel thrown in.
