BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures
The Crooked World Camera Obscura

History 101 was the fifty-eighth book in the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures series. It was written by Mags L. Halliday. The blurb of History 101 was the only one in the range that didn't end with "another in the series of..." Instead it read as if the book were a factual account. History 101 included many true-to-life details, such as in-depth experiences in the Spanish Civil War. The novel used several themes prevalent in the works of George Orwell, who appears in the book.

Publisher's summary Edit

"Remarkable. I'm surprised at how much has been uncovered." — Anji Kapoor

Spain, 1937. In April, the small town of Guernica was razed to the ground in a firestorm that claimed a thousand or more lives. In May, Barcelona exploded into fierce street fighting as different political factions fought for control of the city.

Both events have been the subject of fierce propagandist claims by all sides, but this book examines new evidence to suggest that the two events are more closely linked than previously thought.

Who were the shadowy figures working behind the scenes? Who were "the Doctor", "Anji" and "Fitz" and what were their objectives? And were there really monsters roaming the streets?

Presented in the form of a novel, History 101 tries to discover if the absolute truth can ever be revealed. It should be read as part of the ongoing "Doctor Who: Eighth Doctor" history course.
