DWM 475Vastra, Jenny and Strax all take centre stage in the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine.

Inside this month's issue is an exclusive interview with the actors who have brought the Paternoster Gang to life: Neve McIntosh, Catrin Stewart and Dan Starkey.
"It's crazy, how everyone knows where we're going to be filming," says Neve. "When we were doing Peter Capaldi's first one we went out nice and early in the morning and there was one person there. And then you turned around and suddenly there was a whole load of people."

"Peter himself wasn't there, of course," adds Dan, "cos his first actual filming was in the studio that afternoon, which was really exciting."

"Oh, God, it was amazing watching him," says Neve. "And seeing it grow - seeing it happen - and occasionally having these flashes of going, 'Ah! That reminds me of Tom Baker! Actually, no! That's the Doctor . . . '"
