Professor Bernice Summerfield and the Mirror Effect, or simply The Mirror Effect, was the fifteenth Bernice Summerfield audio story produced by Big Finish Productions. This was writer Stewart Sheargold's first audio story for Big Finish. It begins a very long character arc for Irving Braxiatel whose motivations are questioned throughout the course of this story and continue to develop through the Benny stories.
Do you believe in the mirror or do you believe in yourself?
Under the ice on a cold world lie the derelict remains of the lost Grid 4 Mining Station. Inside the station is a mirror, an ancient alien artefact, its existence known to few. Inside the mirror is one Professor Bernice Summerfield, and she can't get out. Trapped and alone in a place she cannot trust, with her friends distorted and turned against her, she is haunted by fears and reflections.
And inside Bernice Summerfield is a little baby creature that wants her to be mother.
