A vicious war between two nations is coming to a head, and the final movements are centred on the sailing ship Cassandra. Along with a very strange cargo, Cassandra carries Captain Colley, a man with his own sad burden, and the paranoid General Brennan, a woman convinced that her actions will end the war once and for all. Their grim mission goes entirely to plan, until the Cassandra gains an extra passenger ­ a shipwrecked archaeology professor by the name of Bernice Summerfield.

Sensing something is very wrong aboard the ship, Bernice’s snooping brings her close to a terrible truth. Soon, Bernice doesn’t know who to trust, and she can no longer be sure if anyone is who they claim to be…

  • The Secret of Cassandra was the seventh Bernice Summerfield audio story produced by Big Finish Productions.
  • Two covers exist for this audio. The original is semi-photographic and features Lisa Bowerman’s face. The second is a pure illustration by Adrian Salmon. Following this story, for a number of series, all audio covers were designed by Salmon. In the 2010s, however, Big Finish returned to mainly photographic covers, rendering moot the effort to “standardise” Bernice Summerfield covers.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 26 August 2000.
