Set eleven months after the events of the first Victorian Undead series, the Victorian Undead Special is not as good as the first story, but still enjoyable in its own right.
The way this story is set up created a problem that the first series didn't have to deal with, that being a lack of a sense of mystery on the part of the reader. In the first series the reader knew that Moriarty was the villain behind the events depicted, but so did Holmes and the mystery that he was trying to puzzle out was Moriarty's location. Here the reader knows that Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde are the same person, but the mystery Holmes is dealing with surrounds him trying to figure out how events surrounding Jekyll fit together. As a result, Victorian Undead Special is enjoyable, but nowhere near as compelling as the first series.
