Publisher's Summary

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.

I want more of the Great Detective!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was a fun read for those out there that love Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint, and Strax. I am really hopping to see more books about them or even perhaps a spin off show.

What other book might you compare Doctor Who: The Devil in the Smoke to and why?

This is a light read. Fun, entertaining, but something that even a child could listen to. I don't know exactly what other books I would compare it too.

Have you listened to any of Dan Starkey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to any of Dan Starkey's other performances, but I loved his narration!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I listened to this book all in one sitting. Then I listened to it again the next day just for fun while I was cleaning the house.

Any additional comments?

I loved this fun and entertaining book!

- Kirstin "I am a grower. A tangle of vines weaving round myrtle branch fences. Rusty metal, soft stone, and worn wood. Unkempt curls and knees covered in clay. I listen."

Not Bad

Nice listen but could have been better, good narration. But no Doctor. It's an adventure with his friends from the 10th Doctor, A Silurian and a Sontaran.
