Doing Time is a new 'spin off' series from the popular historical science fiction St Mary's novels from Jodi Taylor, and follows new Time Police recruits Jane, Luke and a certain Matthew Farrell.
In the not too distant future, the world has discovered time travel. Countries, people and historical events blink in and out of existence as vigilantes seek to remake history to their own advantage. To comb ...more
In order to stop this, the Time Police were created. An international organisation with near-unlimited powers to perform their duty, to keep the timelines straight. Time travel is now punishable by death, the sentencing of which by the Time Police is now accepted without question.
This was amazing, funny and original-I cannot wait for more!
The Time Police is a very original and unique story that follows Jane, Matthew and Luke, three people who join the time police for very different reasons, all of whom are seen as weird and likely to fail. Jane joins after breaking her grandmothers seagull (sorry but you will have to read the book to hear more about this event ;D). She is quiet, nervous and anxious and seems extraordinarily unlikely to be particularly useful. Howev ...more
As a long time St Mary's fan, I was extremely excited to be approved for the first Time Police spin-off. Although enjoyment of this book is greatly heightened by a more in-depth acquaintance with Max et al, it's not necessary in order to appreciate the story.

I'm guessing most people who are interested in reading 'Doing Time' are up to date with the Chronicles of St Mary's ' series - I've only read the first 3. I am enjoying them immensely and thought I'd try this spin off... Yes, I'm an idiot! To any in the same position as myself, I would catch up with CoSM and then start this. There are a few 'spoilers ' so bear that in mind.
The Time Police: An organisation who's job it is to keep the timeline straight: Team 236 (Team Weird) 3 recruits who don't quite fit.
This is a spin-off to Jodi Taylor's Chronicles of St Mary's series. I have to say I haven't read any of them and apart from a few references, I didn't feel I was missing anything (I do now want to read that series though!)
I have never read any books by this author so came to this with no preconceptions, I thought this book was funny, very funny, sad at times and addressed issues in current society, the quintessential Britishness of it is a joy to behold and looking at the current state of my homeland probably ...more
Doing time was so good! Reading the chronicles of st.marys first is not a must, but i highly recommend it. We all know Matthew's backstory (and if not, as aforementioned), but Luke and Jane are new to us. You could read doing time as a stand alone, but reading the chronicles of st.marys first make for such a richer experience.
Habitually tongue-tied when asked to talk about herself, she gets round this by describing herself as tall, incredibly beautiful, witty and technically proficient.
