Excellent

The best British history podcast I’ve come across so far. Derek knows his subject and is therefore able to deliver a fluent narrative that is well paced and well thought out. He is entertaining without being zany and eloquent without being too dry. If only he could do a complete British history.

Compelling Listening!

Excellent!

Simply Brilliant

Gripping from start to finish. Organised into bite-sized chunks so the complex story of treachery and double-crossing is easily digestible. Would, and have, recommended this to many people. The narrator tells the story so well - currently on the lookout for other podcasts by him, but in the meantime have started to read some of the narrators fictional books which are based around the War of the Roses too.
