Patrick Stewart to swap Star Trek for Dr Who?
Oct 7 2008 by Neil Atkinson, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
ACTOR Patrick Stewart is rumoured to be lining up another space super-role.
Reports in a national newspaper claim the Star Trek actor will guest in the hit TV series Doctor Who.
Mirfield-born Stewart is being lined up for a major role in the Time Lord’s next series after teaming up with The Doctor star David Tennant on stage.
The pair starred in a production of Hamlet in the summer and now Stewart — who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek — is reported to have been offered a role in a two-parter involving the Daleks, set to be screened next year.
