Miniature Menace

Vastra, Strax, and Jenny Flint discover Gremlins in the Royal Observatory. (PROSE: The Curious Case of the Miniature Menaces)

Also in February, the Royal Observatory in Greenwich had a large telescope installed. Shortly afterwards, about a thousand Gremlins settled in the observatory. William Christie noticed bite marks caused by the Gremlins on the telescope's lenses and cleaned them. The next day, the "scratches" were back. After this occurred several times, Christie contacted the Paternoster Gang. Vastra used a special magnifying glass that could see though time to find the Gremlins and the observatory was almost destroyed. Jenny Flint negotiated with the Gremlins and they fixed all the damage they caused. The Paternoster Gang helped the Gremlins find a new home at the bottom of the River Thames.

Two days later, dredgers in the Greenwich area were finding twice as much junk as usual and all of the junk had Gremlin bite marks on it. Rumours were circulating around local taverns of giggling coming from the bottom of the river. (PROSE: The Curious Case of the Miniature Menaces)

Thaddeus Maine leaves 1894 in his time machine. (PROSE: The Singular Case of the Time Machine)

In September, Professor Thaddeus Maine attempted to demonstrate his working time machine at the Academy of Science, but Vastra talked him out of it after several attempts were made to steal it and kill him. Maine decided that instead of dismantling the machine, he would use it to travel to another time. (PROSE: The Singular Case of the Time Machine)


Jenny fights the fighting drone. (PROSE: The Spectre of Paternoster Row)

In November, Strax's fighting drone malfunctioned and began roaming around Paternoster Row. Mrs Fenwick, one of the Paternoster Gang's neighbours, was attacked by the drone. Along with Mr Plumbly, Fenwick approached the Paternoster Gang and asked for help getting rid of the "ghost". The drone began attacking Jenny, but stopped when it ran out of power.
