Big Finish The Paternoster Gang Heritage 3

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.

Neve McIntosh, Dan Starkey and Catrin Stewart reprise their roles for the third volume of thrilling full-cast audio dramas set in and around the criminal, and often paranormal, underworld of 19th-century London, in a four-disc set due for release in May 2020.

The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 3 is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition CD box set or 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…

The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 3 contains four new stories, plus extras:

Family Matters by Lisa McMullin

Jenny’s past comes calling at Paternoster Row, as Strax takes care of a guest, and the travelling circus comes to town – spelling danger for some of the gang.

But when family matters intrude on their marriage, the last thing Jenny wants is Vastra having her in-laws for dinner…

Whatever Remains by Robert Valentine

The Great Detective’s latest case takes Vastra and friends to the Jurassic coast. A local landowner has vanished. The only clue – the footprints of a gigantic creature!

As Strax suffers the attentions of an amorous landlady, Jenny gains an admirer of her own. And Vastra discovers something buried deep…

Truth and Bone by Roy Gill

Bloomsbury troublemakers Stonn and Tom Foster are back, and in much more trouble than ever before.

Sontar has turned its attention to Earth as Requisitioner Skark looks to retrieve missing soldiers.

And Jenny finds Vastra preoccupied with the past, which may lead to a very dark future…

Series Producer, David Richardson, said: “The Paternoster Gang series is about to earn its title as, three box sets in, we discover why it’s called Heritage. It means different things for each lead character, as aspects of their past come back to haunt them.”

The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 3 is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition box set or download, exclusively from the Big Finish website, from just £19.99.

Big Finish listeners can save money by ordering the complete bundle of this series, comprising all four box sets (including the forthcoming Heritage 4, due for release in October 2020), again from www.bigfinish.com

    Such a stupid thing to pick on but I hate that all sontarans are now Dan Starkey, I appreciated episodes like the Sontaran stratagem with the different faces and voices and now it feels like we just get ‘bog standard Sontaran. He’s alright for Strax but he just doesn’t have that authoritative voice of people like General Staal

    OMG there is two Silurians on the cover. I love studying BF covers, there are so many little clues here and there, on most of them.

    Let’s just appreciate the fact that the actor names line up with the characters.

      Starkey suits a beard.
