Will Steven Moffat’s Departure From ‘Doctor Who’ Spell An End To The Paternoster Gang?

For those who are very new to 'Doctor Who' the paternoster gang comprises of Madam Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Strax (Dan Starky) and Jenny (Catrin Stewart).

Although season 10 is over a year away. It hasn’t stopped fan speculation with regard to what will be next for the 12th Doctor. One question that has been asked recently is whether or not Steven Moffat’s departure from the series will mean the end of the ‘Paternoster Gang’.

In a recent interview with Digital Spy Catrin Stewart who plays Jenny expressed her doubts on whether or not we’ll see the gang back once Steven Moffat leaves.

While talking with the website Stewart revealed that she hopes the Paternoster Gang do get another episode of ‘Doctor Who’, but said she doubts we’ll ever see a spin-off series.

For those who are very new to ‘Doctor Who’ the paternoster gang comprises of Madam Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Strax (Dan Starky) and Jenny (Catrin Stewart). The Paternoster gang has been a popular addition to the worlds of ‘Doctor Who’ since they were first introduced back in the second season of Matt Smiths 11th Doctor Who.

When talking about the chances of a spin-off Steward said, “I don’t think it’ll happen, but it’s nice to know that people really like us and want us to come back.”

“It would be a really fun series to do, but I think it’s just the fans that want it. I don’t think there’s ever been any talk at the BBC.

“Someone’s got to write it and now that Steven Moffat’s leaving, I think it could be the end of the Paternoster Gang. Hopefully not, but he’s the one who brought us to Doctor Who.”

‘Doctor Who’ without the Paternoster Gang just would not be the same. So lets hope that Steven Moffat is able to give them a final hurrah in his final series as head writer when it airs next year.

Doctor Who will return to BBC One in December for a Christmas special, with a full series following in 2017.
