Zara Ramm’s narration sometimes resembles a wacky Monty Python skit as she advertises the merits of time travel in a proper British accent. As an employee of St. Mary’s, Dr. Madeleine Maxwell, known as Max, time travels with her team to observe significant historical moments. When they go back to ancient Troy, their mission has unexpected consequences for Max’s personal life. Ramm deftly takes listeners through Taylor’s temporal shifts, emphasizing Max’s dry wit and sense of the ridiculous. As Max internalizes Troy’s horror, the tone shifts to an intimate despair that will have listeners questioning Max’s choices in growing alarm. Ramm’s smooth voice pivots to a tone of regret and loss as Max confronts the consequences of dabbling in time. Ramm portrays Max’s complex nature in all its flawed humanity.
