Big Finish Productions is pleased to confirm plans for the Bernice Summerfield audio adventures, following on from the recently-released Road Trip and the forthcoming charity project, Many Happy Returns.
A third box set, Legion, is due for release in September and features three new adventures. Vesuvius Falling, written by Tony Lee, sees Bernice and her friends investigating a millennia-old murder aboard a spaceship on a collision course with their new home. It guest stars Kai Owen (Torchwood), Andrew Hayden-Smith (Doctor Who's Jake Simmonds, Byker Grove) and Jennie Stoller.
The second instalment - Shades of Gray, written by Scott Handcock - finds Bernice and her friends forced to relive a trilogy of horror stories inside an old, dilapidated house on the dark side of Legion. A house where a valuable artefact is believed to have been hidden... Alexander Vlahos (The Indian Doctor, Doctor Who: The Gunpowder Plot) and Richard Franklin (Doctor Who's Captain Mike Yates) guest star.
The third and final adventure - Everybody Loves Irving - is written by Braxiatel's alter ego Miles Richardson, and sees Bernice's old acquaintance trying to rebuild her trust in him by means of an ill-fated shopping trip. Guest stars include Cameron Blakely, Matt Butcher and Andrew Macklin.
2013 will then see Bernice's adventures continue in two brand new box sets: a three-CD set entitled New Frontiers in April, followed by a bumper five-CD set - Missing Persons - later in the year.
Legion, New Frontiers and Missing Persons are now available to pre-order on CD and download. Many Happy Returns is also available to pre-order as a download only.
Time, once again, for the Big Finish Podcast to return to its regular format, with Nick and Benji in the chair. Guest star Christopher Benjamin (Jago from Jago and Litefoot). And an exclusive preview of The First Men in the Moon!
