Friday Favorite: Sally Lockhart

The Friday Favorite is back! And this week, we celebrate history, mystery, and Doctor Who all in one go.

Author Philip Pullman calls his four Sally Lockhart mystery novels “old-fashioned Victorian blood-and-thunder”. BBC liked them enough to make the first two into TV movies. PBS picked them up in the US as part of their Masterpiece Mystery series (staring Billie Piper as the title character, and Matt Smith as one of her trusted friends).

The Shadow in the North
