Stan Ramble has a problem. He has to explain his job at the bank, but he deliberately forgot it five years ago. As pressure mounts on him to produce answers, he realises there's only one thing for it: time travel. Good thing he has Doctor Who on hand to advise him; shame he's a hallucination.
It's a race against time in more ways than one for Stan as he competes with a pair of analysts, Ryan and Kong, who have been sent by Group to dislodge this particular spanner from the works of the bank. They've never encountered a barrier quite like Stan though.
The Spanner is a comic novella about absurd incompetence trying to dig itself out of a hole.
