Walking Backwards for Christmas was the fifth story in the Bernice Summerfield anthology Something Changed. It was written by Ben Aaronovitch. Unlike the other stories in the anthology, it is told as a series of flashbacks from Benny's life before travelling with the Seventh Doctor. It is unclear whether all of these events happened in an alternate version of her past caused by the history machine, or if the machine simply caused her to relive these past events.

Summary Edit

Bernice Summerfield once ran away from her academy, and spent two years away without them looking for her. Bernice remembers times from her past.
