so you're not going to try and do what they did on the depp/burton sweeney todd film poster,and try and cram in as many recognisable london locations to be visible from the window of his fleet street apartment,lol.
great opening first page!!!

Thanks a lot guys.

David... Carlos Pacheco.....?
....lets not get ahead of ourselves here! It's good, but it's not THAT good.

Jamie, no, i'm actually ignoring the Burton Todd movie, as it's actually set about a hundred years after the original story took place. I've tried my best to make it as historically accurate as possible. The Houses of Parliament in the distance would actually be a lot smaller, as they're a lot further town the Thames than the Tower of London, but i wanted to make sure they were seen so i fudged it a bit.
