The Paternoster Gang: Heritage 2

There are certain stage directions that crop up a lot in Big Finish scripts. Actors might be asked to react to the blast of an energy weapon, struggle against imaginary restraints, or simulate exhaustion from running down miles of corridor. But Dining with Death is probably the only script that will ever ask its cast to portray ‘MAYHEM AS THEY EVADE THE LIVING CHEESE’.

Vastra, Jenny and Strax – the Doctor’s crim eghting friends in Victorian London – are back for three m ore episodes of the Heritage series, of which Dining with Death is the first. It’s written by Dan Starkey, who also voices Strax.

”Strax always makes the tea, but he’s rather disgruntled about that.” DAN STARKEY

“When we were talking about the general architecture of the series, and kicking around ideas about an arc, they were very keen to have an Upstairs, Downstairs-type episode – a more domestic sort of thing”, says Dan. “Obviously Paternoster Row is a Victorian household – or it’s based on one – so I suppose the obvious thing is: how does the household run? With Jenny and Vastra, there’s lots of stuff. established in the TV series; we have this convenient fiction for the outside world that Jenny’s her housemaid, even though their relationship is deeper than that. And obviously Strax ‘holds the rank of butler’. But then you think, ‘What else would happen in a Victorian house?’ Strax always makes the tea, but he’s rather disgruntled about that. It’s about pushing it into a situation where having a well-run household is very important to the plot.
