The Cold War is over, the Millennium is fast approaching, and Brigadier Winifred Bambera is the new head of UNIT.

But in this shadowy, unpredictable world of deadly threats and hidden enemies, Bambera and her new team - Sergeant Jean-Paul Savarin and Dr Louise Rix - will need to prove their mettle. The stakes are higher than ever.

1.1 Rogue State by Robert Valentine
In the war-torn republic of Valge Maja, Brigadier Bambera is hot on the trail of arms-dealing terrorist, Roman Krojač, when she’s ordered back to Geneva. Her old sponsor, Dame Lydia Kingsley, offers her a job as the new head of UNIT. Reluctant to accept, she nevertheless teams up with sarcastic UNIT officer Sergeant Jean-Paul Savarin to prevent a monstrous Soviet-era weapon from falling into Krojač’s hands.

1.2 Time Flies by Alison Winter
Bambera and Savarin are summoned to a secretive genetic research facility by Dr Louise Rix, UNIT’s rebellious new scientific adviser. Two scientists have vanished in mysterious circumstances, and despite the assurances of the sinister Dr Grange, UNIT suspects there’s something very wrong with the centre’s caterpillar population. Can they survive the fruits of Dr Grange’s experiments? And will Savarin survive Bambera and Rix’s rocky new relationship?

1.3 Dark Side of the Moon by Alfie Shaw
A new British space station, the Britannia, is due to be launched at the end of the week, but Bambera, Rix and Savarin fear that some kind of psychic entity is trying to sabotage it. Is it really the spirit of Helena McNamara, deceased astronaut and old friend of Rix? And does it speak the truth when it warns that something terrible is waiting for humanity on the dark side of the moon?

Behind the Scenes at UNIT: Brave New World



UNIT: Brave New World: Seabird One is a wonderful set that sets itself apart as a unique piece of Doctor Who media by fleshing out the amazing groundwork laid down by Ben Aaronovitch in Battlefield with inventive minds, some brilliant sound design, and an excellent cast coming together to make something new. 9/10.

Indie Mac User

UNIT: Brave New World: Seabird One is a successful launch for the range. One which makes the most of this overlooked UNIT era, delivering on the promise made in Battlefield. A "Brave New World," indeed.

Warped Factor

UNIT: Brave New World has begun in rather enjoyable style. Angela Bruce’s boisterous performance as Bambera is a completely successful revival of the character, and in Jordan’s Savarin and Oyinloye’s Rix, her supporting characters are instantly well-rounded and engaging. ...Largely because of the characters, Seabird One is a fun and promising start to a new era of UNIT adventures. And it sounds fantastic.
