Very Victorian

This adventure is what one would expect from Doctor Who meets Sherlock Holmes. We get Doctor 7 putting Berniece and Ace on assignment, so we are already halfway into a plot when the story itself actually starts. We get the usual Sherlock stuff with Dr. Watson narrating and what from their perspective seems to be a murder mystery. The story also involves the mysterious Library of St. John the Beheaded, which appears in several of the Virgin novels. What plays out, though, is Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes in a plot from William Hope Hodgson, involving quasi supernatural creatures and otherworldly dimensions. It is clever and cute, but there are not all that many surprises.
