Virgin New Adventures
All-Consuming Fire Strange England

Blood Harvest was the twenty-eighth New Adventures novel. It featured the Seventh Doctor, Ace, Bernice Summerfield and Romana II. It also featured a return of several characters and the "vampire planet" seen in the 1980 television story State of Decay.

Events in this novel lead to the novel Goth Opera, in order to draw attention to the newly-launched Virgin Missing Adventures line of original novels featuring past Doctors.

Publisher's summary Edit

"Doc's peddling bootleg liquor in an illegal speakeasy. You're carrying a gun for him, Ace - which makes you no better than any other gun-moll."

Dekker is a private eye, an honest one. But when Al Capone hires him to investigate a new joint called "Doc's", he knows this is one job he can't refuse. And just why are the Doctor and Ace selling illegal booze in a town full of murderous gangsters?

Meanwhile, Bernice has been abandoned on a vampire-infested planet outside normal space. There she meets a mysterious stranger called Romanadvoratrelundar — and discovers an ancient and malevolent power, linking 1929 Chicago with a lair of immortal evil.

The consequences of this story are inextricably linked to events in the Doctor's past.
