Fans of Doctor Who’s Victorian-era “Paternoster Gang”—Silurian and human couple Madame Vastra and Jenny, alongside their Sontaran butler Strax—have been clamoring for a spinoff since they first appeared. While that may not happen on TV, a new audio drama is the closest thing you’ll get to one anytime soon.
Earlier today Children's BBC announced the three winners of a Doctor Who themed viewer competition to design three sonic tools for Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax - aka The Paternoster Gang - to use in an upcoming episode of Doctor Who. And the winning designs are actually pretty amazing!
Here's a short but intriguing promo for Doctor Who. Strax discusses Queen Elizabeth in a typically suspicious, error-filled report to the Sontarans.
Doctor Who's Dan Starkey never breaks character, and knows his Sontaran butler character inside and out. THAT is dedication to the craft, people!
