Patsy was a female mudlark in Victorian London.

Prior to Jeremiah Castle being hanged in the 1860s, Patsy served as the Queen of Jacob's Island. (AUDIO: Jago & Litefoot & Patsy)

She found the body of Joseph Buller floating in the Thames. She brought it to the attention of the Metropolitan Police in 1889. She rather enjoyed the gruesome sight. (TV: The Talons of Weng-Chiang) She told Percival Quick about a body she found, but there wasn't much of it left when they found it. (AUDIO: The Monstrous Menagerie)

She later assisted Henry Gordon Jago and Professor George Litefoot in several of their investigations in the 1890s. (AUDIO: Jago & Litefoot & Patsy, Higson & Quick)

Mulberry Gride described her as "a malodorous old hag", (AUDIO: Jago & Litefoot & Patsy) while Jago described as "peripatetic". (AUDIO: Higson & Quick)

Behind the scenes Edit

This character was originally credited as "Ghoul" in the sense of "a person morbidly interested in death or disaster". [1]

Actress Patsy Smart removed her false teeth to play this part, handing them in a handkerchief to director David Maloney. (DCOM: The Talons of Weng-Chiang)

She was eventually named "Patsy" in her audio appearances after the actress who originally played her on television. (BFX: Jago and Litefoot Series Eight)
