"I think those three should have their own show… They are just brilliant."
Go inside the Doctor’s relationship with Madame Vastra, Jenny & Strax - and discover what classic British comedy MATT SMITH based his relationship with Strax on, and what led STEVEN MOFFAT to create such a unique character.
Strax’s dialogue is tricky, might not be 100% correct…

There’s a great deal to look forward to in the Christmas Special. The Doctor is back, Jenna-Louise Coleman returns, there are scary snowmen in Victorian London and the sinister Doctor Simeon, played by Richard E Grant, is up against the Time Lord. And apart from all of this, we say hello again to Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax, last seen in The Great Detective. These three remarkable friends debuted in A Good Man Goes to War and now form three-quarters of the Paternoster Gang, with the Doctor himself the fourth member of the team. We can’t wait to see them back and to celebrate their return we’ve created their own sections of the site where you can learn more about them and check out their clips and galleries.

There are a bunch of new promo images that we’ll be posting to this blog over the next couple of days. In the meantime, you can check them all out now in a gallery on BBC AMERICA’s Doctor Who website.
