The Adventures of the Diogenes Damsel is a Big Finish Productions audio drama featuring Lisa Bowerman as Bernice Summerfield, a character from the spin-off media based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who.



Bernice finds herself marooned in Victorian London where she seeks the help of Mycroft Holmes.


  • Bernice Summerfield - Lisa Bowerman
  • Mycroft Holmes - David Warner
  • Straxus - Peter Miles
  • Septimus - Simon Kingsley
  • Continuity

  • Bernice met Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson in the Doctor Who New Adventures novel, All-Consuming Fire. Mycroft also appeared in that book, although the two characters did not meet.
  • The character of Straxus is a recurring character in Big Finish's Eighth Doctor Adventures.
  • Septimus and his "brother" are identified as Cwejen, from the Faction Paradox range of Doctor Who spin-offs (which have also featured Sherlock Holmes). This is the first time a Big Finish release has explicitly acknowledged Faction Paradox continuity.
