a real world point of view
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 following the loss of the license that allowed them to publish an original series of novels, the New Adventures series, which could legally use characters and concepts derived from Doctor Who. Though most featured Bernice herself, two, Deadfall and Dead Romance, centred on other characters.
The series began in in May 1997 and ended in October 1999. Big Finish Productions would later obtain the license to these characters for their own line of audios, novels and short fiction featuring Benny and her supporting cast.
The book series initially used the same cover designs as that for the later Doctor Who NA books, except with a newly commissioned New Adventures logo. A new cover design was introduced with Another Girl, Another Planet, which removed the NA identifier from the front cover and introduced a new title-lettering style.
During the publication of the New Adventures range, Decalog 5: Wonders which was fifth and final instalment in the Virgin Decalogs short story anthology series, which initially began as a compilation of Doctor Who-related stories. Since Virgin Books no longer had the rights to publish original Doctor Who fiction, nine of its ten stories were entirely original science fiction, with no connection to the Doctor Who universe.
However, it was important to the history of DWU fiction for the one story that did have some relevance to Doctor Who. The Judgement of Solomon by Lawrence Miles, which was the first short story to feature Bernice Summerfield. So it is possible that this story is a part of the New Adventures range.
