Book Review: Doctor Who Silhouette

Doctor Who Silhouette
By Justin Richards

"Vastra and Strax and Jenny? Oh no, we don't need to bother them. Trust me. " Marlowe Hapworth is found dead in his locked study, killed by an unknown assailant. This is a case for the Great Detective, Madam Vastra. Fick Bellamy, bare-knuckle boxer, has the life drawn out of him by a figure dressed as an undertaker. This angers Strax the Sontaran. The Carnival of Curiosities, a collection of bizarre and fascinating side shows and performers.  This is where Jenny Flint looks for answers. How are these things connected? And what does Orestes Milton, rich industrialist, have to do with it all? As the Doctor and Clara join the hunt for the truth, they find themselves thrust into a world where nothing and no one are what they seem. 

Doctor Who is a very popular television show, an english one, that I've never seen.  So reading this book, I was afraid that I wouldn't "get" things. But it wasn't too bad. I love the characters, and the dialogue is great.  The writing style is very easy to follow and I love that the font is large. After trying to watch an episode though, I can't say I'm a big fan of the Doctor Who show. If you like The Reluctant Detective, or Seagrass Pier you'll want to check out this book.
