Reactions and Reviews: Issue 6

What I like about this story is that it shows an established and loving relationship with a minimum of angst. It is nice to see Holmes and Watson happy for a change. The down side is that basically nothing happens in the story and a couple from the A-Team wander through for no particular reason and according to no real paranormal mechanism. [1]
