The Adventures of the Family Brass are detailed in this exciting adventure serial. A clan of Victorian science geniuses (Lord Brass an inventor and tactician, Lady Brass a Sherlock-level detective, son Cyril a martial artist savant and daughter Gwendolyn an acrobat and mistress of disguise) take on a mysterious Crime Minister for control of a London very different from the one in our history books.
Although Victorian Steampunk is the backdrop, it has little to do with the storyline. The story involves several genres, so Drama seemed to be the best category so far. Very good production, writing, & action.
