Additional DescriptionMore Details

A dying universe needs a ruler to save it, and that ruler is the Doctor. Trouble is, he’s not very good at ruling it and he may have lost his only friend, Bernice Summerfield… Doctor Who has a fairly long history in drawing from US politics, from The Deadly Assassin riffing on the Kennedy Assassination and Aliens of London/World War Three satirising the War on Terror. With the Doctor cast as an unpopular leader running a society in decline, have writers James Goss and Guy Adams taken inspiration from the Trump administration?

Benny 11.4 Dead Man’s Switch

A Bernice Summerfield audio adventure on a single CD starring Lisa Bowerman.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

26 years ago, a team of scientists came to a moon to unearth the secrets of a long-dead civilisation. They were later found to have died in what the authorities called an anti-matter explosion. Alone and desperate, Bernice Summerfield will do anything to get back home. But where is home? The capital world of Zordin seems to offer the only chance of answers, but that’s a long way away. The offer of a job could be her best way of paying for the voyage but… archaeology is illegal… and there’s a quarantine… and she’ll have to leap from a spacecraft in orbit. But what does that matter? On a world guarded by armed satellites and patrolled by defence drones on the surface, Benny’s going to have to use all her knowledge, skill and wits. Because it’s not the moon itself that’s the problem. It’s what happened there; what remains there; what might escape.

Benny 10.3 Venus Mantrap

A Bernice Summerfield audio adventure on a single CD starring Lisa Bowerman.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Eros, artificial moon of Venus, has a reputation for romance, but Professor Bernice Summerfield is just visiting for the money – specifically the secret royalties of her recently deceased partner, the famous ‘novelist’ Jason Kane. Jason entrusted control of the inheritance to Bernice’s rival in love and academia, acerbic alien rodent Professor Scoblow, and Bernice is prepared for a fight. Unfortunately for Bernice, the path of finance rarely runs smoothly and disgruntled hamsters are the least of her problems: Eros’s twin moon, the warlike Thanatos, is moving into alignment, Erosian society is in turmoil, war rockets are due for launch, and worst of all the banks are closed until further notice. And if that wasn’t bad enough, a force as inevitable as death is waiting to strike…

Benny 7.6 The Empire State

A Bernice Summerfield audio adventure on a single CD starring Lisa Bowerman, with Stephen Fewell as Jason Kane.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

A remarkable city once stood on a desert moon between six colony worlds: an entire city contained within a single vast tower. In honour of another great feat of architecture from an earlier age, the human pioneers who built the city christened it the EmpireState. The phrase ‘once stood’ would seem to imply that the city isn’t there any more, and until yesterday it wasn’t, having been destroyed almost a century ago. Yet now the EmpireState has reappeared as if the last century never happened, and the members of Bernice Summerfield’s expedition to the site have been scattered throughout the city. One member in particular proves difficult to track down, which is awkward as Bernice believes that she may hold the key to what’s happening at the EmpireState – and the means to save the Braxiatel Collection.
