Doctor Who: Shada

Tom Baker returns as the Fourth Doctor in this never before seen Doctor Who treasure, combining original live-action footage with hand-drawn animation.

In 1979, SHADA was set to be the celebratory end to the seventeenth series of Doctor Who. Critically acclaimed writer Douglas Adams had completed the script, Tom Baker’s Doctor was at the height of his popularity, and the series had bigger audiences than ever before. But strike action at the BBC in November 1979 meant the studio scenes were never completed and the adventure was abandoned. The story became legendary among fans.

Now, thirty-eight years on, BBC Worldwide has announced that SHADA is to finally be completed, combining the original, remastered footage, with brand new colour animation to complete the story. The animation will feature the newly-recorded voices of the original cast, including Tom Baker as the Doctor and Lalla Ward as Romana, performing the original script.
