Doctor Who News Strax

Published on May 16th, 2013 | by Christian Cawley

Strax Calling Sontar!

Sontaran Commander Strax has sent another of his field reports to Sontar, curiously based in the TARDIS console room. As a Doctor Who Series 7 finale teaser, the following film starring Dan Starkey is limited – but it’s also fun!

Dan Starkey will be appearing as Commander Strax alongside his Paternoster Gang colleagues Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and of course the Doctor himself (not to mention Clara) in The Name of the Doctor, this Saturday evening from 7pm on BBC One and BBC HD and 8 ET on BBC America.

    Where does the name Paternoster Gang come from? Did I miss it’s being mentioned in an episode, or did a fan make it up? Or is does it have a meaning beyond Doctor Who? Just wondering.

    • The Moff, I think. They’re based on Paternoster Row, apparently.
