The Return of Brigadier Bambera

The Return of Brigadier Bambera

From Big Finish…

Brigadier Winifred Bambera, the no-nonsense UNIT leader from the 1989 TV story Battlefield, is returning to Doctor Who!

We can exclusively reveal that Bambera returns in the upcoming second season of The Lost Stories, in Animal, written by Andrew Cartmel. Once again she is played by Angela Bruce, who was delighted to be reunited with Sylvester McCoy at the recording in April.

“Animal is a great, old-fashioned UNIT story,” says producer David Richardson, “in which Bambera and her troops are investigating some strange events at a university. And then the Doctor and Raine arrive…”

Animal, and the upcoming Lost Stories, are available for pre-order now.

Also – as previously announced, Gallifrey ( The audio series not the Planet! ) will return,a fourth series is in pre-production, with scripts currently being written. Expect the new series in the first half of 2011 …

    I’m thinking of getting the McCoy ones when they come out. I’ve never heard of Axilon though.

    There is a whole series of Big Finish stories that were written for the classic series but never made

    It was an unmade story from 1990 where the Seventh Doctor is trapped in a game with the Celestial Toymaker; it would have been his last story on television if the show continued.
