Doing Time

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.

‘Inventive and entertaining… a fast-paced and fun first book in what promises to be an excellent new series’ Culturefly

A long time ago in the future, the secret of time travel became known to all. Everyone seized the opportunity – and the world nearly ended. There will always be idiots who want to change history.

And so, the Time Police were formed. An all-powerful, international organisation tasked with keeping the timeline straight. At all costs.

Their success is legendary, and the Time Wars are over. But now the Time Police must fight to save a very different future – their own.

This is the story of Jane, Luke and Matthew – arguably the worst recruits in Time Police history. Or, very possibly, three young people who might just change everything.

Reviews

Takes readers on a carnival ride through laughter and tears with a bit of time travel thrown in
Publishers Weekly (on Just One Damned Thing...)
Another wonderfully imaginative story, filled with warmth, humour and bureaucratic ineptitude . . . reading Jodi's books is like the feeling you get snuggling down in a duvet with a lovely hot cup of tea on hand

I think I might have a few books to add to my ever-growing backlog!
Espresso Coco
A very engaging read, light-hearted yet still meaty, an enjoyable romp through time!
