It is 1627. The House of Commons is in uproar against the heavy handed policies of the unpopular Charles I. Edward Coke stands up and makes an impassioned plea for the liberties of all Englishmen as enshrined in the largely forgotten document MAGNA CARTA. All of a sudden we find ourselves in the early thirteenth century and meet the saturnine and difficult King John and his rebellious barons. No angels either. What do murder mystery, a clairvoyant hermit and a standoff in a field called Runnymede have in common? And who mentioned royal death by peaches?
