The British Revolution

A time travel related plot hook, posted here rather than the Who blog as it might fit Timewatch better. The result of a BBC Four documentary, The Regency. I hadn’t actually known quite how close we came to a revolution during this period, between the Peterloo Massacre and the Cato Street Conspiracy. With no viable replacement for the Prince Regent, could we have had another British republic? And if so, what would that do to history? The Industrial Revolution and age of empire would look very different...
