The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 3 review on CultBox

My review of The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 3 is now live on CultBox: The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 3 audio review. In my view it’s the strongest in this range so far and a good Big Finish debut for Robert Valentine (whose second release Shadow of the Sun is out now!). +++ Message Ends +++

Paternoster Heritage 3 details released

Big Finish has released details for the May 2020 release Paternoster Heritage 3. Yes, it’s the return of Vastra, Strax and Jenny for three more capers in Victorian London. Remain calm, human scum! Everyone’s favourite Victorian crime-fighting trio are back to solve mysteries, crack cases and, if all else fails, obliterate everything with acid grenades. We even…

Jago joins the Paternoster Gang for Christmas 2020!

It’s a one-off rather than a regular occurrence, but there can only be so many mysteries to go round even in Victorian London! As part of Paternoster Gang: Heritage 4, Henry Gordon Jago will be helping Mme Vastra, Jenny and Strax! It’s also a Christmas story!

The Paternoster Gang – some thoughts

I’ve now listened to the second volume of stories, Paternoster Gang: Heritage 2 and while I’m no closer to understanding why heritage, I do feel the series is finding its feet. I’ve several thoughts about the structure of the boxsets so far and what I particularly think works. I share them below…

Paternoster Gang: Heritage 1 thoughts

I’ve just finished Paternoster Gang: Heritage 1 and thought I’d capture some observations (review coming). These should be pretty much spoiler free, at least regards content, though you may wish to come back to this if you’ve not heard the boxset yet.

The 8th of March review

The Big Finish 2019 International Women’s Day release was The Eighth of March, with four stories, women writers, director and a full range of well-liked women from across the Doctor Who universe. The motif of the 8th of March is in each tale as an anchor; beyond that no big arc or other distraction. As…

At last! The Paternoster Gang comes to Big Finish!

It won’t be a surprise as such (we’ve seen all the players converging on this), but Big Finish has announced a four boxset run for the Paternoster Gang! Why it wasn’t announced at Big Finish Day, who knows! Catrin Stewart, Neve McIntosh and Dan Starkey are all back for Paternoster Gang – Heritage. Each boxset…

Still waiting for the Paternoster Gang on audio

Another reveal from the latest Big Finish podcast was the fact their extended licence doesn’t cover the Paternoster Gang. This is a surprise to many fans, and more so given Strax has already appeared with Jago & Litefoot.

Jago & Litefoot & Strax – The Haunting reviewed

We’ve had the first all-new modern-Who series from Big Finish (UNIT-Extinction), now we get the first crossover from modern to old with Justin Richards’s tale Jago & Litefoot & Strax – The Haunting. This means the regular Jago & Litefoot crew (including Ellie and Inspector Quick) get to meet the well-dressed if strange-looking Mr Strax. Strax…

Jago, Litefoot and Strax

It may not be the full Paternoster Gang, but we can’t complain. Big Finish has announced Jago & Litefoot & Strax. An idea so obvious I didn’t think of it. Dan Starkey is a very familiar figure in Big Finish releases and fans have been clamouring to have the Paternoster Gang meet up with Jago & Litefoot….

Could we get the Further Fantastical Adventures of Captain Avery?

With the recent new-Who announcements from Big Finish, and the hint of more to come, I wondered what else we might be expecting and out of those what would I must want to listen to. I’ll start with the most likely, The Paternoster Gang, then cast my net wider. My thoughts are below — do…
