The Shadow Heart Revealed

The cover to Big Finish’s The Shadow Heart has been released – and fans of Star Trek will recognise a familiar face…

It was announced a few months ago that Deep Space Nine’s Chase Masterson (famous for playing Leeta) would star opposite the Seventh Doctor in this November’s audio release, which sees her as glamourous mercenary, Vienna Salvatori. Written by Doctor Who Magazine comic scribe, Jonathan Morris, in The Shadow Heart, the Doctor must battle the deadly Wrath.

“One empire has fallen and another has taken its place. The race known as The Wrath are expanding into new territory. Only the Earth Empire stands in their way.

It’s been fifty years since the Doctor last visited this sector of space. And one man in particular has been awaiting his return. As the mistakes of his past come back to haunt him, and with a price on his head and bounty hunters on his tail, the Doctor is heading for a last reckoning.

The pieces are finally coming together. Somewhere deep within The Shadow Heart.”

The release brings a multi-Doctor trilogy that begins in next month’s The Burning Prince and continues in The Acheron Pulse to a close, all three of which are directed by Ken Bentley.

The Shadow Heart can be pre-ordered on CD for £14.99, or downloaded for £12.99 in advance of its November release. Subscribers who have December’s 1001 Nights on order will get Night of the Stormcrow (starring the Fourth Doctor) for free.
