Victorian London harbours many secrets: alien visitors, strange phenomena and unearthly powers. If an impossible puzzle needs solving, or a grave injustice needs righting, help can be found on Paternoster Row.
There, 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.
But even heroes can never escape their past…

1.1 The Cars That Ate London! by Jonathan Morris
The advent of electric carriages on London’s streets causes a stir – until they start careening out of control. Elsewhere, factory workers lose their senses, while a brand-new power plant suffers mysterious outages.
Genius industrialist Fabian Solak has a vision of the future – free from pollution, running on clean electricity. But Madame Vastra knows such ideas are ahead of their time…
1.2 A Photograph to Remember by Roy Gill
The Paternoster Gang are shocked to discover a rival group on the streets. A Sontaran, a Silurian and a human – only their intentions are not quite so noble as Madame Vastra and friends.
And when the recently-photographed dead begin to return home, strangely altered, will this ‘Bloomsbury Bunch’ be more of a help or a hindrance?
1.3 The Ghosts of Greenwich by Paul Morris
Strange things are happening to the people of Greenwich. Phantoms of the living appear, while others are aged beyond their years. A cloaked figure stalks the streets, and time is out of joint.
Vastra, Jenny and Strax find all clues point towards the Meridian Line. Beneath the Royal Observatory lies a secret – something terribly ancient and horribly dangerous…
Three new cases for the oddball investigative trio: newfangled electric vehicles cause trouble on the streets of London, temporal anomalies haunt Greenwich observatory and there’s a rival ragtag group in town: a Silurian warrior, a decidedly dodgy Sontaran and his human boyfriend – and they’re up to no good...! It’s the spinoff that fans have been craving for close to a decade: Vastra, Jenny and Strax now star in their own uncanny adventures chock full of mystery, tomfoolery and the humorous banter that made them such memorable characters in the first place.
