Good for a series' start (if you don't count The Mahogany Murderers), though not a entirely consistent story. I do recommend it if you just began to delve into this world, which has nothing of "ha'penny fiction" (as Litefoot would dare to say).

This is a very fitting start for the adventures of the Infernal Investigators. We get a "look" at our villain Doctor Tulp and some character development for Jago, Litefoot and Ellie. All three of them deliver very good performances, especially Christopher Benjamin. His scene at the end is truly poignant
The plot itself is quite average, but it manages just fine.

The Bloodless Soldier is the first story of Series One of Jago & Litefoot, basically picking up where the Mahogany Murderers left off with Jago and Litefoot still in contact and wondering who Dr. Tulp could be and what he is planning. This story does introduce the audience to Dr. Tulp who is just a mysterious surgeon, but doesn't have much of a baring on the plot. The story involves a group of soldiers coming back from India with their captain who has become a cross between a werewolf and a vampire that must feed on human blood every so often. Jago and Litefoot only really get involved when bodies start appearing at the morgue and an Indian chap is babbling to Litefoot about his mission.

Before this we get to catch up with their relationship and get some development with Ellie who happens to have a brother who is a soldier. You can guess where the story goes from their with Jago and Litefoot eventually confronting the beast who converts Ellie's brother so he has to be put down. And of all people it's Jago who does it in the end which really effects his character. The story is great and my only real complaint is that it is a bit predictable with what the plot is. Still it's a great start to the first series of Jago & Litefsot and I applaud Justin Richards for picking up where Andy Lane left off and am looking forward at what is to come from the infernal investigators.

'Bloodless Soldier' introduces the season and our protagonists. The gentleman pathologist Professor Litefoot is often the straight man of the two, providing clarity of vision and often next round, Whereas the alliterating actor and fraidy-cat theatre owner (Henry Gordon Jago) is teller of tale tales and purveyor of provocative parables. A match made in heaven. Sergeant Quick and Ellie Higson are loyal friends of the Jago & Litefoot and often step outside the bounds of the professional relationship with the pair to help out above and beyond the call of duty. Throughout the series the production and performances are top draw. The effort and detail that has gone into this series deserves every praise. There is no obvious weak link with all the characters and it's really on the writing that sets them all apart. It also sets the theme of the series which is possession Because it sets up the series story arc and introduces new characters the season opener often has a lot to deal with but this handles it with aplomb.
