3.0 su 5 stelle An entertaining expansion of the "The Snowmen," 3.5 stars... 21 maggio 2013
Di Ruth Anderson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Released as a prequel to the 2012 Doctor Who Christmas special "The Snowmen" (a personal favorite), Devil in the Smoke explores the presence and activities of "The Great Intelligence" in Victorian London prior to events that introduced a depressed, embittered Doctor to a governess named Clara, also known as the impossible girl. While the Doctor doesn't feature in this short tale, it is nonetheless one of the stronger Who novellas I've read, thanks in no small part to its focus on the trio of Vastra, Jenny, and Strax, three of the more colorful and frankly interesting supporting characters that have been introduced during Matt Smith's run as Eleven.

The tale opens with a positively Dickensian touch -- two young boys, Harry and Jim, sweeping snow from the workhouse yard, steal a few moments in which to build a snowman. But their stolen moment of play is transformed into horror when a dead woman emerges from within the snowman they just built, setting into motion a chain of events that threatens not only their lives but the very existence of the entire world. Clearly it's a case that calls for the considerable investigative powers of the Great Detective.

And so enters Madame Vastra, the green-skinned Silurian from "A Good Man Goes to War" who has made a life for herself in Victorian London, as the veiled and enigmatic Great Detective. I LOVED this aspect of the Christmas special, as since Moffat is showrunner for both Who and Sherlock, it seemed inevitable that at some point the two worlds would cross paths. In introducing Vastra as the "real life" Great Detective of literary legend, Moffat cleverly brings his Holmes-related duties to bear in the Doctor's universe. And I loved that he turns expectations on their head by having Vastra, a female alien,claim the title of Great Detective when going into the concept I would've expected the Doctor to lay claim to that honor -- and relish it.

Richards is one of the better and most consistently reliable novelists to work in the Who universe, and here he delivers a fast-paced, engaging story that not only expands on events of "The Snowmen" but makes a compelling case for more appearances by the trio of Vastra, Jenny, and Strax -- if not their own spin-off show. *wink* Playing with the tropes of both the Who universe and Holmesian fiction, The Devil in the Smoke is engaging novella with a surprisingly literary tone for fiction of this ilk. Marred only by its short length and several typos, Devil in the Smoke is a lightly diverting, worthwhile entry in the ever-expanding world of Who-related fiction.
4.0 su 5 stelle Vastra and Strax! 13 maggio 2014

When two boys find a body inside their snowman, unwittingly uncovering a fiendish plot, they run for their lives. One of them, Harry, has the fortune to encounter Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint, and Strax, the Paternoster Gang. Can The Great Detective and her cohorts uncover the mystery of how the woman ended up inside the snowman and who killed her?

This short story features three of my favorite Doctor Who supporting cast members, Madame Vastra, Jenny, and Strax, in an adventure in Victorian London. They are well-written and true to their TV counterparts. Strax is just as unintentionally hilarious as he is on television.

The story proves to be much more complicated than originally suspected but the Great Detective is up to the challenge. More than once, I wished the powers that be would devote a Doctor Who special solely to the Paternoster Gang.

The only fault I can find with Devil in the Smoke is that it was very short. I'd gladly fork over some quid for a full length adventure featuring Madame Vastra and company.

Sontar-Ha! Four out of five stars.

Being a fan of Doctor Who it is easy to come in and have high expectations for a book within that universe (or many universes). Coming in, Already knowing Vastra, Jenny and Strax just made it that much easier to jump right into the story and the way the author portrays these characters is true to cannon in the series. I could picture the three in my mind and envision what an "episode" of their story would look like.

Though he didnt make any reference to the relationship between Vastra and Jenny (neither overtly or subtlely) I don't think it hurt the story. It wasn't necessary to plot development and if one feels the lack of it, it's based on one's own personal preference if they enjoy a bit of romance or not. Personally, I do like a bit of romance, but I do not hold the author accountable for that!

As a run up to the Christmas special is not bad. I would love to read more about these three, hopefully they will have more books. I was expecting more from it though. Normally when Justin Richards writes a DW book its well written and always a good read. This time though it was a little more difficult to read. There were several gramatical errors and it was hard to read at times. But I think that this spin off has promise if a little more time went into prof reading/spell checking on any up coming books. That being said, if you can overlook some gramatical errors it is a good lead up to the Christmas special and I think it is interesting to read about the adventures of Vastra, Jenny and Strax.

A nice novelette that is a prequel to the 2012 Doctor Who Christmas Special. If you're a fan of Madame Vastra and you're still awaiting her own spin-off like me then this is a must read. Overall a fun, short, detective story that will leave you satisfied. Especially under $3 for a price tag. Well worth it.
