Tuesday is a nameless villain from the book Shadow of the Gallows by Terry Deary. He is a Scottish Fenian, who plans to murder Queen Victoria during her visit in Edinburgh. His accomplices are Sunday and Thursday. They hate Victoria, because they believe she did nothing for the Irish people during the Great Famine in Ireland and gave only five pounds to help them.

About the character

He is described as a thin, untidy man with black hair and Scottish accent. He seems to be little bit forgetful and silly, as he always forget to call Mr. Barton by his alias Sunday. He also often contradicts Sunday and even didn't drop a detonating cord during testing the bomb and it burned his fingers.



He and his accomplices meet in Sunday's house in Edinburgh to plan to murder Queen Victoria during her short visit in the town. Sunday got a bomb earlier and plans to throw it on Victoria's train to blow her up. However, they don't know someone is listening to their plan. There is a small thief, Bairn, in the room where they are planning. He tried to rob Sunday's house, but was interrupted by the Fenians. Suddenly, the police rushed into the house to arrest Bairn, as Rachel Mackay informed them about him. Bairn tries to escape, but Thursday hits his head and the boy forgets everything he heard.

Later, the Fenians are testing their bomb and find out it takes three seconds to blow up (and Tuesday finally learns to drop a detonating cord until it burns his fingers).

On the big day, the Fenians are waiting for the train on the bridge. Suddenly, Kitty Bruce and Bairn appear to stop them. They introduce themselves as Wednesday and Friday and give the Fenians "more powerful bomb" which is actually an aquarium, black from carbon black. The Fenians suspect nothing and throw the aquarium instead. Needless to say, it doesn't blow up. Kitty and Bairn run to a nearest policeman, but the Fenians flee meanwhile.
