The Paternoster Gang return for a brand-new box set of adventures in Heritage 4, due out later this month from Big Finish

Neve McIntosh, Dan Starkey, and Catrin Stewart are set to reprise their on-screen roles as Victorian crime-fighting trio Madame Vastra, Strax, and Jenny Flint, better known as the Paternoster Gang in Heritage 4, due out later this month. This fourth and final volume in this Paternoster Gang series will see them deal with more unexplained phenomena, unearthly powers, and unsolved mysteries.

Appearing alongside the series’ regular cast will be guest star Christopher Benjamin, as he once again reprises his role as Henry Gordon Jago. Benjamin has said of his role:

“Henry is a fun, enjoyable character who I have loved playing. At first, I worried about playing him without Litefoot as the two are so intertwined – but being able to separate him from his partner in crime did mean I had a chance to delve deeper into his character, which was great. This is comedy drama at its best.”

Big Finish – The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 4 – Cast (Catrin Stewart, Trevor Cooper, Dan Starkey, Neve Mcintosh, Elizabeth Burrow, and Christopher Benjamin)

Heritage 4 will see the Paternoster Gang face an evil force from the past, open a terrifying Christmas present, and infiltrate an exclusive and mysterious club across three brand-new, full cast audio adventures:

Merry Christmas, Mr Jago by Paul Morris

As Vastra searches for relics of prehistory, Jenny worries about security, and Strax wants to find a suitable gift for his friend.

Henry Gordon Jago has been invited to spend Christmas at Paternoster Row –but when presents are unwrapped, the surprises inside could prove deadly!

The Ghost Writers by Roy Gill

While Jenny and Strax investigate sightings of fauns beneath streetlights and mermaids in bath-houses, Madame Vastra is invited into a different mystery.

The literary members of the Antediluvian Club have strict criteria for entry, and Miss Edith Renner needs Vastra to access their secrets.

Rulers of Earth by Matt Fitton

Ancient forces have risen, Vastra and her friends are lost to each other, and a terrible prophecy is taking shape.

A pretender to the throne allies with a force from prehistory, while an unlikely ally searches for the Paternosters. The Gang must face their destiny, as the fate of Earth is decided…

Actor Dan Starkey has added, “The Paternoster Gang work so well together because they are a team with skillsets that complete each other; Vastra is a great detective, Jenny is a spy with martial arts skills, Strax is a formidable military man, and all three are adventurous. They gel together personality-wise – and, behind the scenes, Neve, Catrin and myself do too which is why we always have fun recording these stories!”

The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 4 is available to pre-order now as a collector’s edition box set or as a download, exclusively from the Big Finish website, from just £19.99.

Victorian London harbours many secrets: alien visitors, strange phenomena and unearthly powers.

But a trio of investigators stands ready to delve into such mysteries: the Great Detective, Madame Vastra, her resourceful spouse, Jenny Flint, and their loyal valet, Strax.
If an impossible puzzle needs solving, or a grave injustice needs righting, help can be found on Paternoster Row.

But even heroes can never escape their past…
