Amazing! Great how Ruth mothers Harry and reminds him of everything. My reaction to the General was somewhere between hatred and laughter - he is a truly ludicrous figure and I congratulate you on his creation. Lovely to imagine Harry in a 19th century red coat, though...

I really like this story and the way you've transposed our Spooks characters into roles in the past. Poor long-suffering Harry in India with his obtuse boss. I had to laugh at the way Ruth meekly left Harry's office in this chapter, since she usually barges in and out on the show. Can't wait for the next one!

Wow that General really is a pompous arrogant b*stard.
I love how Ruth was thinking about Harry's undone top buttons though. Brilliant!

This is brilliant! I must admit that I was swooning at the thought of Harry in 19th century dress with his collar loose and chest visible *swoons*
Does poor Ruth have to wear a corset in the interst of propriety poor thing?
Please update soon - loving this.

This is a really interesting premise. I hope you decide to continue with it as I'd like to read more. :)

This is great! Love that there's still an Adam/Zaf friendship, even though they belong to very different groups in society. Can't wait for more!

Another great chapter! This new setting has really intrigued me and I can't wait to see how you're going to develop this. Can we see some Major Pearce/Ruth bits next chapter? x

This is an interesting idea; as someone who likes to mentally place characters in lots of situations, this piqued my curiosity.
The time period and location interests me (repressed RH lust in a hot, dusty and exotic place...what's not to like?), although I admit I'm not entirely well versed about it. I wouldn't have imagined a female secretary in the army in 1857, but I'm supposing that might just be part of the AU set up.
Definitely curious to see how you develop this. Thanks for sharing.

This looks intriguing! I like how you've used a writing style which fits with the era as well. Look forward to more!

Please please please continue - it is one of my favourite periods aswell!
*grins at thought of Harry in uniform*
More soon? xx
