The movie Master is back for more carnage in Nemesis Express!

Eric Roberts returns as the diabolical Time Lord he originally played in 1996’s TV movie Doctor Who. Star Trek’s Chase Masterson also reprises the role of Vienna Salvatori — marking ten years of the glamorous bounty hunter. The Master once again has to contend with the Chronovores in a brand-new box set, Nemesis Express. The set of three full-cast audio dramas is due for release in October 2022 by Big Finish Productions.

Also joining the glittering cast is Teri Ann Bobb-Baxter (War of the Worlds, Bridgerton) as Passion, an alien thief with special abilities joining forces with Vienna. But the Master is always one step ahead…

Nemesis Express’ producer David Richardson, discussed how the new episodes pick up the Doctor Who villain’s ongoing story. “I think, from the very first box set, we understood what this series should be about,” he says. “At its core, this is the story of the Eric Roberts Master clawing his way back into our universe, with each box set taking place in clearly defined story worlds with a supporting ensemble of well-realised characters. It gives us a sense of being on a journey with this Master – and it’s a journey that Vienna Salvatori is keen to end…”

Big Finish Executive Producer Jason Haigh-Ellery, occupies the director’s chair for Nemesis Express, explaining “I always have a great time working with Eric [Roberts]. He’s such a lovely bloke – but also the consummate professional and he always brings another option to a scene. Often, he has seen something on the page which others haven’t and this leads to one of the most unique interpretations of the Master.”
