The Revisionists was the first story of the ninth season of Big Finish Productions' Short Trips series.

Publisher's summary[]

Guests at the Hôtel des Rois are being haunted by ancestors that never existed. The Brigadier was only in Geneva to finalise his retirement, but how could he resist? Investigating, the Brigadier quickly finds something unusual. A warrior in leathers. A warrior called Leela...

History is about to catch up with both of them. History that neither of them thinks is real.
