The Crystal of Cantus
Lisa Bowerman (Professor Bernice Summerfield), Stephen Fewell (Jason Kane), Nicholas Briggs (Ronan McGinley), Miles Richardson (Irving Braxiatel), Steven Wickham (Joseph), Thomas Grant (Peter Summerfield), Paul Bryant (Parasiel), Michael Cuckson (Commander Hallan), Katarina Olsson (Babs), Toby Longworth (Jack), Gary Russell (Thesanius), Joseph Lidster (Cassus)
Fabled crystals from long-dead civilsations. Jason Kane blundering into situations out of his control. Entombed Cybermen waking froma century-long sleep. It’s all in a day’s work for Professor Bernice Summerfield.
Armed with her endless supply of witty quips and penchant for lost causes, she’ll find the Crystal, rescue Jason, destroy the Cybermen and be home in time for supper.
Except, this time, it’s different. This time, as the saying goes, it’s personal.
And, after this adventure, things will never be the same again.
