The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield – Volume Five: Buried Memories is out now. And here’s the synopsis:
5.1 Pride of the Lampian by Alyson Leeds
Bernice Summerfield finds the last relic of a lost civilisation. One that the Doctor is worried may never have existed.
5.2 Clear History by Doris V Sutherland
The people of Civitas-G have retreated into an idyllic recreation of their homeworld. And they’re refusing to believe that it is now breaking down.
5.3 Dead and Breakfast by April McCaffrey
Bernice and the Doctor are trapped on a planet where people who are unusual have a habit of dying. They’re in trouble.
5.4 Burrowed Time by Lani Woodward
Centuries ago the Byrinthians were wiped out. Apart from one underground train which is still travelling the tunnels of this long-dead world. With a passenger on board.
Buried Memories consists of 4 stories written by scribes new to Big Finish (bar Doris V Sutherland, who was found in last year’s Bernice Summerfield writing competition). Producer, James Goss, explains:
“Last year, we ran a Bernice Summerfield short story competition with [Doctor Who blog] The Time Ladies. And we were so impressed by the finalists that we asked all of them if they wanted to write an episode for the next Benny box set. And luckily they said yes, coming up with a set of very different, very fresh ideas.”
The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield – Volume Five: Buried Memories is available now priced at £22.99 as a CD box set or £19.99 on download, rising to £29.99 on CD or £24.99 on download on general release.
