The Similarity Engine is the final story in Series One of Jago & Litefoot brings the storyline of Dr. Tulp and his mahogany mannequins. We find out exactly who the mysterious Dr. Tulp actually is and how he knows how to work machinery. You see he has been able to travel in time and bring back knowledge and is trying to build something to prolong life and energy. The story also fleshes out the character of Sergeant Quick from The Talons of Weng-Chiang who was really just a minor character. We learn that he has a life and is almost a Lestrade to Jago and Litefoot's odd version of Sherlock Holmes.

I also really like what they put Jago through as it seems that he gets a lot of stuff thrown at him over the course of the box set. Christopher Benjamin gives one of his best performances yet with Trevor Baxter being split up from Benjamin through the story. It feels a lot like The Mahogany Murderers. And the cliffhanger makes me want to listen to Series 2 as we get hints about more bloodless victims and an old friend of Litefoot called Sanders.

Throughout this first series, one sinister figure has played a minor role in each case and in this one, that villain comes to the fore. Litefoot is asked to investigate a strange illness afflicting several moonlighting policemen who are unloading a mysterious black ore while Jago finds himself confined to a sinister "hospital" along with a policeman with a deformed face. This is a superb finale for the first series that manages to work through some great ideas as we see the full extent of the villain's mad plan. Also Jago & Litefoot both have moments where their own unique styles of cleverness shine.

A great finale for the story arc that started way back in the Mahogany Murderers. An imaginative story with lots of fantastical ideas, wonderful sound design, brilliant performances from all involved and an intruiging cliff hanger for series 2.

A good story that works best when seen as the conclusion to THE MAHOGANY MURDERERS.
