Review: The Paternoster Gang – Heritage 4

Review by Jacob Licklider


The Paternoster Gang as a spin-off has suffered from a bit of an identity crisis through its first three volumes.

Review: The Paternoster Gang – Heritage 3

Review by Jacob Licklider


The Paternoster Gang: Heritage has been a four set miniseries exploring the characters which Steven Moffat retconned as the Paternoster Gang in The Name of the Doctor and the third set to be released from Big Finish Productions is the first to actually live up to the “heritage” subtitle.

Paternoster Gang hails from. It’s also the first set to feel like there may actually be a story arc forming for the next story with hints of a coming apocalypse that Madame Vastra has her own little part to play on. I’d say more on that later, but it is all setup and saved for the final set which has been announced and will be released later this year with a special guest appearance which I will not spoil here.
