3.0 out of 5 stars Secrets, secrets and more secrets... 17 Feb 2001
The first in a series of original Bernice Summerfield audio plays, this story sees the wonderful Lisa Bowerman yet again breathing life into the role. She is joined by a small cast in a suitably claustrophobic story, by the end of which you will know the secret of Cassandra.
Holidaying on a world where a major war is going on may not seem sensible, and indeed Bernice will have several well chosen words with her travel agent after the story is over, Benny finds herself temporarily shipwrecked before being picked up by the captain of the Cassandra, over the vociferous objections of General Brennan, who has hired the Cassandra.
Secrets? Well, who hasn't got them? Certainly not any of the characters in this story!
My main problem is the start - the holiday on the warring planet and shipwrecked bit. After that, the story works well, although some of the characters do seem to behave in an odd way - no doubt due to the stresses of war.
A good use of 70 minutes of your time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ahoy There! 8 Oct 2010
By S Maslin - Published on Amazon.com
Warning 1: there have been two different covers for this release, one good, one not so good. (Try and get the one with the Adrian Salmon design.)

Warning 2: the 'new' theme tune is absolutely awful; a wretched rock ballad that will have you reaching for the sick bag. Thankfully, someone saw sense and three discs later we were back with the far superior Alistair Lock original.

These two caveats aside, 'The Secret of Cassandra' is a very neat little story, coming from the time before every Bernice story had to include a former Doctor Who monster (a sales tactic, no doubt). Of the small cast, Lennox Greaves (as Captain Colley) stands out; very easy on the ear and a lovely foil for Lisa Bowerman's Bernice.

All in all, one of the Professor's more intriguing, less frenetic stories and a very pleasant way to spend an hour in your headphones.

(If only they could remaster it without that dreadful song.)
