The Virgin Bernice Summerfield New Adventures were a series of novels that featured Bernice Summerfield and her "supporting cast". They were published by Virgin Books beginning in May 1997 as a continuation of their New Adventures line after the loss of their Doctor Who license. The line ended in October 1999.
Big Finish Productions would later obtain the licence to these characters for their own line of audios, novels and short fiction featuring Benny and her supporting cast. Several novels were adapted for audio in this series.
The New Adventures Edit
- Though not considered part of the main series, the short story collection Decalog 5: Wonders includes the first Bernice Summerfield short story, The Judgement of Solomon by Lawrence Miles.
- In Big Finish Productions' Bernice Summerfield series, four Bernice Summerfield New Adventures were adapted into audio: Oh No It Isn't!, Beyond the Sun, Walking to Babylon, and Dragons' Wrath.
Production notes Edit
- The book series initially used the same cover designs as that for the later Doctor Who New Adventures books; beginning with Another Girl, Another Planet, a new cover design was introduced that removed the New Adventures identifier from the front cover and introduced a new title-lettering style.
