It's good to get away from the joys of motherhood once in
a while. So when the Perloran government calls upon Bernice
to recover a state treasure, she readily obliges. Trouble
is, the previous government traded the artefact with the reptilian
Galyari - and to the Galyari, a deal is a deal...
It was only a few weeks ago that Bernice (Lisa Bowerman) was
enjoying another break from her infant son Peter, and indeed
from everyone else at the Braxiatel Collection, in Lance Parkin's
novel The Big Hunt. It makes you wonder whether she's
really cut out for motherhood. But of course she has a great
mothering instinct, as is proven when a young Galyari boy
latches on to her during the course of this story.
CD continues the recent trend for uniting Benny with old
Doctor Who monsters. This time, however, the monsters
aren't that old. They are the nomadic Galyari race from Simon
A. Forward's 2002 Sixth Doctor audio drama, The Sandman.
The return of these fascinating creatures is very welcome,
though sometimes their modulated voices are rather difficult
blast from the past, though not a deliberate one this time,
is the character of the trader Mordecan (played by Lisa Bowerman's
big brother Robin). His unscrupulous free-market ethics are
unfortunately similar to those of Arkadian from Big Finish's
is an enjoyable enough little tale, though the revelation
surrounding the Galyari child is not really surprising at
all, given that he is said to suffer from a bone condition.
