  Virgin New Adventures - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Virgin New Adventures (often referred to simply as NAs within fandom) were a series of novels from Virgin Publishing based on the British science-fiction television series Doctor Who, which had been cancelled in 1989, continuing the story of the series from where the television programme had left off.
However, after the television series was cancelled at the end of 1989, Virgin were granted the licence to produce full-length original novels continuing the story from the point at which the series had concluded.
The New Adventures series continued with Bernice Summerfield, one of the new companions introduced for the New Adventures as the lead character, starting with her taking up a job as professor of archaeology at the St Oscar's University on the planet of Dellah.

Virgin continued publishing the 'New Adventures' until 1996, when the rights reverted to the BBC after the American TV Movie starring Paul McGann as the Doctor.
Interestingly, Russell T Davies, the Executive Producer/chief writerhead honcho/big cheese of the new Doctor Who series also wrote a Virgin New Adventure (Damaged Goods), as have Paul Cornell and Mark Gatiss, both of whom are contributing episodes for the new series.
There are also 'Missing Adventures', featuring previous incarnations of the Doctor and his companions in adventures set during the series' past.

 BBC - Doctor Who - Classic Series - Ebooks - Introduction - License Revoked -
The Well-Mannered War was the third part of my Fourth Doctor trilogy for Virgin's Missing Adventures.
It was written against the background of Virgin losing the Who license; I think we always knew that it would get a smaller print run than normal because legally Virgin wouldn't be able to sell any copies to the shops after May 1996.
I knew it was the last Virgin Missing Adventure; I knew it was the last Who book I'd do for a while at least because I'd started doing TV; and I knew there was going to be a general election in May 1997 when the book was going to be published.

 The TARDIS Library: New Adventures   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
The first New Adventure novels were published by Virgin Books in 1991.
From the beginning, the New Adventures consciously strove to break the mould of "typical" Doctor Who stories, and while several established villains appeared (Cybermen, Ice Warriors, the Master, etc.), the overall tone of the NAs was more edgy and provocative than previous Who novelisations.
Also, some NAs have been dramatised by Big Finish as part of their series of Bernice Summerfield audio adventures.

The scapular was a picture of the Virgin Mary enclosed in brown cloth that hung from braided strings.
So, I prayed to Mary and had a vision of her inside my head and she showed me where the bullet would go when the dude pulled the trigger and how I could dodge it by moving quickly too the left just as the dude started to pull the trigger.
Might have been a subconscious thing, and not some Virgin Mary, but whatever it was I believed it saved his life.

The Missing Adventures were a monthly series of novels from Virgin Books, featuring past Doctors and companions — original stories, never seen on TV.
The first MA appeared in July 1994, and they were published on a monthly basis until May 1997, when Virgin's licence to publish Doctor Who fiction expired.
The MAs mostly starred one of the first 6 Doctors (the Seventh Doctor featured in the New Adventures instead), alongside established television companions.

 Jeff's Doctor Who Collection-The Virgin Missing Adventures   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
With the great success that Virgin was experiencing with the Seventh Doctor in his New Adventures, it seemed only natural that they could have similar success with previous Doctors and companions going on their own new adventures.
Of course, they couldn't both be known as NA's, so Virgin opted for the very-appropriate moniker of Missing Adventures.
These books were always slotted neatly between two television stories and, as the number of books increased, they were also put between TV stories and other books or sometimes just between two books.

The sharp wit he had been using in his last two Missing Adventures ("The Romance of Crime" and "The English Way of Death") is funnier than ever, without ever going over the top like he did in his other two novels.
This novel commemorates two endings - it's the last of Virgin's Missing Adventures, set at the end of the period during which Graham Williams produced the TV series.
The book consequently has a slightly more melancholy tone than Gareth Roberts' other Missing Adventures, but the wit that made his other stories such a joy to read is still present.

 Stan Cottrell II: The Booklist - 1999
The real fun of reading these "Missing Adventures" is that they are so firmly rooted in the Doctor Who mythos.
Straight-up historical adventure, faithful to the Second Doctor's era, which means it feels slightly dated from today's perspective.
Nice beginning for the new Doctor, but since the writers don't have much of a handle on him yet, and since Virgin gets to keep Bernice, most of the story is about her.

Outside of the television programme, the character has made appearances in spin-off novels published by Virgin Publishing and BBC Books, and in Doctor Who audio plays produced by Big Finish as well as a separate series of audio plays produced by BBV.
In the licensed Virgin Missing Adventures novel Goth Opera, Romana is given a seat on the High Council of time Lords, and subsequently becomes Lady President of Gallifrey.
In the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures novels, Romana undergoes a third regeneration, and her new incarnation (Romana III) is far less sympathetic and far more ruthless than the other two.

The Missing Adventures were much better at the characterization of the TARDIS crew...possibly because the writers had to match their attitudes and mannerisms to those the cast presented in that era of the show.

The Missing Adventures were less than a runaway success for Virgin, who didn't really have much confidence in the line, often using it as a place to send rejected NAs.
Very few of them seemed to have anything to say and their success rate in capturing the eras they were set in was quite variable.
System Shock remains my favourite Missing Adventure, being a level of quality above most of the MAs of its kind and confident and enjoyable enough to succeed where some of the braver Virgin MAs often failed.
