New Doctor Who on Radio 7

There is a new Doctor Who episode on BBC Radio 7 this week! "Sisters of the Flame":

"Someone is attempting to resurrect the past - and they need a Time Lord to help them achieve it. Stars Paul McGann."

It will be in the Listen Again section until Saturday, November 14th.

If there are any other Star Trek: DS9 fans among us- you might recognize the voice of actor Alexander Siddig (Dr. Bashir)

Also, if you are feeling particularly nerdy, he is one of a few actors who have participated in both Doctor Who and Star Trek productions. It just so happens that one of the first DS9 episodes that focused on his character guest starred Daphne Ashbrook...the Eighth Doctor's companion in the 1996 movie! LOL.
