    Lisa Bowerman's first foray into the Doctor Who was in 1989 as Kara in the final story of the original television run. It was in 1998 however, that she took on one of the "wilderness years" most iconic characters for Big Finish, Professor Bernice Summerfield.

    Originally created for the Virgin New Adventures range by Paul Cornell, Benny was the character Big Finish turned to when their first attempt to acquire an official Doctor Who license from the BBC. 

    It is our privilege to have Lisa with us for this edition of The Sirens of Audio to talk about taking on the role of Benny in those early days, how the character has lasted so long, and her other roles with Big Finish as actor and director for ranges such as The Companion Chronicles, The Early Years, The Lost Stories, Torchwood and Jago & Litefoot. 

    We also discuss some of the projects Lisa has been involved with outside Big Finish.

    Thank you so much for a fascinating discussion Lisa!
