The Dance of the Dead was the fourteenth Bernice Summerfield audio story produced by Big Finish Productions. It was the first Bernice Summerfield audio story to feature the Ice Warriors and only the second time they've appeared on audio. The first was in the 2000 Doctor Who audio story Red Dawn.

This story leads on from The Plague Herds of Excelis with Iris Wildthyme having dropped Benny on board the Empress following their adventure.

But are her fellow escapees all they seem? Benny finds that's hard to tell when your own mind's being hijacked by the memories and emotions of a dead alien — while a Martian Grand Marshall becomes your better half...
