This was an odd story. There was a lot I loved and a lot I hated and I often couldn't decide how I felt about it.

The story starts in Victorian London with a basic ghost story, but the story takes a massive turn in the second half as we learn the source and motive of the ghosts.

Now, the initial cast is good and strong. We get a great Victorian setting with solid industrial age characters, but then when we hit the second half the cast gets confusing. More characters, more motivations, more backgrounds and more actors playing multiple parts. There is, however, an elegance in the second half and the story or the tributes. In the first half they are "ghosts". In the second half they are "tributes" and the idea behind their construction makes them a top class Doctor Who monster.

Sadly though, this plot is underpinned by an environmental message that sits alongside Land of the Dead in terms of quality.
