I finally got round to watching the Christmas episode of Doctor Who and I will say I did enjoy it. I really liked the fact it was set in a Victorian London and glad a fair bit of screentime was given to Madam Vastra, Jenny and Strax.
I was quite pleased to find that there is an ebook with a Madam Vastra story which is available for both Kindle and the Apple Book Store.
Madame Vastra, the fabled Lizard Woman of Paternoster Row, knew death in many shapes and forms. But perhaps one of the most bizarre of these was death by snow…
On a cold day in December, two young boys, tired of sweeping snow from the workhouse yard, decide to build a snowman – and are confronted with a strange and grisly mystery. In horrified fascination, they watch as their snowman begins to bleed…
The search for answers to this impossible event will plunge Harry into the most hazardous – and exhilarating – adventure of his life. He will encounter a hideous troll. He will dine with a mysterious parlour maid. And he will help the Great Detective, Madame Vastra, save the world from the terrifying Devil in the Smoke.
This is very much a must read if you enjoyed the Doctor Who Christmas special.
Get Devil in the Smoke at Amazon.co.uk for your Kindle (or Kindle App).
