The amazing *true* story of how three Healthcare scientists set out to foil the Gunpowder Plot, with the help of 9 year old Princess Elizabeth, and the weird and wonderful mysteries of Microbiology, Haematology, Biochemistry, Immunology, hand-washing, and… time travel
When Healthcare Scientists Lily, Rosa, and Frank, find a message, 'HELPE', on one of their machines, they are transported back to London,1605. Winter approaches, plague stalks the land,... Guy Fawkes has just been arrested. The race begins to find the rest of the Plotters... And they need your help.
