Doctor Who Drabble: Veiled

Title: Veiled
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Madame Vastra.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 187: Investigate at dw100.
Spoilers: The Snowmen.
Summary: Madame Vastra keeps her true appearance hidden.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.
A/N: And again, 100 words first try!

Madame Vastra is London’s greatest detective; her exploits are legendary thanks to the writings of Doyle, although of course Doyle writes his detective as a man. Equality between men and women is a long way off, but Vastra believes it will eventually become a reality.

Meanwhile, she hides her face behind a heavy veil when she leaves her home to go about her business; if people would be disturbed about a woman carrying out investigations into crimes, how much more dismayed would they be to know she is of a different species entirely?

Under the circumstances, her disguise seems prudent.

The End
