Storyline

Sally Lockhart attempts to find the meaning behind her late father's last letter which contained the phrase "the seven blessings" -- a cryptic message that can strike a man dead with fear. Sally is helped by her friends, including Frederick Garland, a photographer, and Jim, a young assistant at the family's shipping firm. The ever twisting mystery involves assassins, opium dens, Chinese gangs, and the Ruby of Agrapur. The priceless ruby is also sought by the ruthless Mrs. Holland, who is willing to kill to get her hands on it. Written by L. Hamre

Poor Mystery
22 March 2011 | by (Boston, Ma) – See all my reviews

Former Dr. Who companion and current Dr. Who in a lame, scattered 'mystery'. This one plays like a mystery novel in which pages have been cut out and the story jumps backward and forward all over the place with huge gaping holes in the plot. Poorly written with even worse 'direction'. In fact about the only thing to redeem this is the performance of Julie Walters, who makes a fabulous villain. But then this is a part she has done before in other films, so there is nothing new here. As for Piper and Smith, to say they give totally uninteresting performance would be being too kind. One can easily see why this disappeared after 2 episodes. There is very little to recommend it other than some nice costumes.
