I was slightly disappointed to see that its all in the passe "nasa" style of 1980's white and bare metal. I'd kind of hoped for a more victorian retro mahogany and brass effect. But that's probably because I just finished reading "The Witches of Chiswick" this morning, which has a similar theme to "The difference engine" but way more British and a quite a bit sillier, though none the less clever for that, and much more unputdownable (if there is such a word ;-).
