Plus next month, two new volumes of Benny adventures are in store for us! From growing up in a military academy (in which Benny is played by Emily Laing), to reacquainting herself with former beau Jason Kane (plus the Grel! Good fact!), and a sojourn at the Braxiatel Collection (with Miles Richardson back as Irving Braxiatel), it’s a trip down memory lane in The Story So Far Volume 1.
And in The Story So Far Volume 2, Benny crosses paths with an incarnation of the Doctor played by Michael Jayston (I wonder where we’ve met him before…), a reunion with Ruth where they meet the Drahvins (from Doctor Who TV series Galaxy 4), and a mysterious Professor played by David Warner. Could the Unbound Doctor be returning?
