Good attempt at a modern woman placed in Victorian times. Sally has various friends who help her along the way, and her determination does her credit.

Enjoyable, good movie!
What first grabbed me was Billie Piper - enjoyed her as Rose in Dr Who and then saw her in her other show where she plays... an escort. In this particular movie she plays a strong willed woman, who is intelligent and courageous, not unlike Rose, and frankly ahead of her time, and stumble into a mystery that needs to be solved and wouldn't you know it, one of her friends that help, in a separate wing of the sleuthing is Matt Smith, the new Dr Who! I enjoyed this character and it actually got me looking around to see if there was more about this Sally Lockhart... I think I will be reading up on the other mysteries she got involved in... hopefully BBC Mysteries did the other ones has movies has well and we can see those too!
I enjoyed the movie (mainly because Matt Smith made a really cute Jim Taylor, though I did thought Jim Taylor was supposed to be younger...) Anyway, it's been a while since I read the book so I wasn't very sure if they were as faithful to the book as possible. I did enjoy the movie but something about it was a bit off for some reason. Anyway, I still suggest everybody to watch it! (Not just because there are two Doctor Who actors playing in it!)
filled with atmosphere and a strong female character
I preferred the other Sally Lockhart Mystery. The villian is really good but I found this one was much more tragic than the first one. I much prefer happy endings.....
