Lethbridge-Stewart - Bloodlines: An Ordinary Man
by Andy Frankham-Allen and Tim Gambrell
(Series 7, book 3)

The destruction of the causal nexus continues, as the timelines of the Lethbridge-Stewarts and Traverses are wiped out of existence.

A new reality has been created, so very close to the essential timeline. And it is into this reality that Anne Travers is sent to retrieve a man who bears a shocking resemblance to Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart.

February 1969, and school-teacher Archie Lethbridge-Stewart lives an ordinary life. A contented life with his little family in the Cornish village of Bledoe. But that is all about to change. First his old pupil, Owain Vine, is having strange visions. Visions of a London covered in web! And on the news it seems London itself is being evacuated – a major gas leak and bears breaking free of London Zoo. Can these events be connected?

Linking all this is a strange old man. A man who insists he knows Archie. Only, the man insists on calling him Alistair. Who is this strange old man? What is this talk of the future? And why should Archie and Owain risk everything to go with the old man to London?

Anne Travers has the answers. But, unfortunately, she appears to be little more than a ghost!

The Brig Isn't The Brig!

I rally enjoyed this story. So what would the Brigadier have been if he hadn't joined the army? In this book you find out. The bloodlines whole story sweep is a little disconcerting but it is becoming much clearer with this book. As a stand alone story it is a nice peripheral story to the Web of fear. While all the trouble is going on in London life in a small Cornish village is carrying on as normal for everyone, except for Owain Vine the only son of the local store keeper, and his ex maths teacher, Archie Lethbridge-Stewart. Owain is having dreams/visions linked to the London event, and Archie is seeing a ghost, a woman in her thirties with dark hair. When an old man appears in the village who insists on calling Archie, Alistair and knows things about Owain that he shouldn't even if some of the things he claims aren't right? You have an interesting mix of a story.
