Bambera’s Back

Doctor Who star Sylvester McCoy with Angela BruceBig Finish have revealed that Brigadier Winifred Bambera, the no-nonsense UNIT leader from the 1989 TV story Battlefield, is returning in the Audio Adventures of Doctor Who!

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…”

This particular set of Lost Stories are based on the unused scripts for the original Season 27, which was in the early stages of pre-production in 1989 when the series was cancelled, a well as three stories from the William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton eras.

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