The Angel of History was the third story in the Bernice Summerfield box set The Story So Far: Volume Two.

Publisher's summary Edit

Annis is an archaeology lecturer at a university. Under fire from friends, students and the police for holding entirely the wrong view of history, the only person who seems to believe her is a mysterious Professor.

Plot Edit

The story follows the life of Annis – archaeologist on an unnamed planet trying to build an academic career despite being discriminated "because of who she is" – presumably, a member of an unnamed ethnic minority. As tensions escalate, she tries to prove that her people were not as primitive as official history would like everyone to believe.

Notes Edit

Continuity Edit

  • While the events of the story seem to unfold in real time, it is later revealed that Bernice was using a device to re-live Annis's experiences nearly a century after her death.
  • In the intro Benny describes the planet as being peaceful and prosperous before darker instincts got hold of its' inhabitants. At the time of her and the Doctor's arrival ethnic tensions subsided, with time of Annis's life being seen as a dark page of history.
