The worlds of Star Trek and Doctor Who are about to collide – AGAIN!. No, not the comic with the Cybermen and the Borg and the Eleventh Doctor. OK, not really a crossover at all but actress Chase Masterson, star of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has been cast to play a role in the November Big Finish release The Shadow Heart.
The Seventh Doctor tale will form part of a trilogy played out across one Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctor tale which starts in September with The Burning Prince.
Written by Jonathan Morris, The Shadow Heart tells part of a story that spans 60 years and will see the see the Doctor witness the fall of an intergalactic Empire.
Masterson had only good things to say about her casting in this epic adventure and seems to have a great respect for Doctor Who and its long history, which is always nice!
“If there’s any property an actor would want to be a part of — in addition to Trek — it’s Doctor Who. Fifty years of great stories, and counting!”
Now there’s a woman that we’d all like to know! Masterson’s role has yet to be announced in more details other than that she will play a “feisty” character.
As usual, the more that we know, the more that you’ll know!
The Shadow Heart is available to pre-order on CD and via download from www.bigfinish.com
