Timelord follows the adventures of two children, Harriet and Sam when they discover a mysterious old board game that has been hidden in a sealed cupboard for more than 70 years.
As they play the game, Timelord, they are led on an unforgettable adventure into the past. They meet a real Timelord and a series of fascinating historical characters like Florence Nightingale, Beethoven and Boudicca. They also confront danger in the form of ferocious dinosaurs, Dinopods, who are determined to win back the planet.
Timelord possesses all the usual characteristics of a Musicline musical. It’s funny, has fantastic sing-along songs and memorable, easy-to-teach lines.
It has been written to allow flexibility in casting so it’s suitable for both KS1 and KS2 pupils with 27 speaking roles and unlimited chorus parts. Timelord also features Musicline’s unique line count system making casting a five minute job.
Timelord’s pre-release performances received brilliant reviews. Sally Chester, deputy head of Ayscoughfee Hall School, Lincolnshire said: “What a great idea, especially with the Dr Who 50th Anniversary on the horizon.”

However, there is also a performance pianoforte score, Grade 5 standard with overture, play ons / offs, songs, link music, cues and chord symbols.
