Sitting on the fountain’s edge, a man is writing a few notes intently.

You glance over its papers, noticing the many scribbles. He finally raises his head and says: “I am Dr. Hodges. I come from 1665, and my people are dying of a horrible disease. No remedy exists in my century, and I even asked witches to create a magical healing potion. Unable to help me, they threw me in the future to find a remedy. But this city is so different from mine, I need a guide to walk its streets. May you help me?”

It was a good level of challenge, some clues really made you think. The history was very informative and fascinating. Only negative is that one of the clues was out of order. The clue that should have followed Samuel Pepys statue actually appeared 2 clue later.
