Blood Harvest was the twenty-eighth New Adventures novel. It featured the Seventh Doctor, Ace, Bernice Summerfield and Romana II. It also featured a return of several characters and the planet seen in the 1980 television story State of Decay.

Events in this novel lead to PROSE: Goth Opera, in order to draw attention to the newly-launched Virgin Missing Adventures line of original novels featuring past Doctors.

Publisher's summary

"Doc's peddling bootleg liquor in an illegal speakeasy. You’re carrying a gun for him, Ace - which makes you no better than any other gun-moll."

Dekker is a private eye; an honest one. But when Al Capone hires him to investigate a new joint called ‘Doc’s’, he knows this is one job he can’t refuse. And just why are the Doctor and Ace selling illegal booze in a town full of murderous gangsters?

Meanwhile, Bernice has been abandoned on a vampire-infested planet outside normal space. There she meets a mysterious stranger called Romanadvoratrelundar -- and discovers an ancient and malevolent power, linking 1929 Chicago with a lair of immortal evil.

The consequences of this story are inextricably linked to events in the Doctor’s past.
