What did you like best about this story?

It was compelling listening, not a wasted word in all the lectures. Unbelievable value.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The black death is presented in all its horror. For most of this series the lecturer does not dwell on the human cost of battles, but here the awfulness breaks through. I realise how massively lucky I am to live in the 21st century in England.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Mayhem, murder and monarchs.
