Spring 1593. England is a powder keg of rumour and fear. Plague rages, famine is rife, the ageing Queen's couriers scheme: Elizabeth's Golden Age is truly tarnished. Meanwhile Spain watches and waits - and plots. Into this turmoil a small cart clatters through the streets of London, carrying a deadly load. It is the first in a wave of horrific bombing attacks on the Dutch immigrant community that will change John Shakespeare's life for ever.

Overly camp narration of an otherwise decent story
This narrator makes Robert Cecil's character sound irritatingly like Julian Clary, which seems an unlikely tone in a man effectively governing a country.
Other than that quite enjoyable!
