  • Doctor Who

The episode was written by Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams and, due to its incomplete nature, has gained mythic attention amongst devout Doctor Who fans. Shada - an episode that began filming in 1979 with Tom Baker as the legendary Time Lord - is finally finished and available to download (a DVD will be released in the United Kingdom on December 4th, and in the U.S. on January 9th).

It's exciting to see BBC give makeovers to lost or unfinished episodes of Doctor Who, which still unfortunately boasts huge gaps in the runs of the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton). My real life was really rather drab compared with the life of Doctor Who when we were making it. "Doctor Who for me was an asylum and when I was in (it), in full flight, making silly suggestions or pulling amusing faces to make actors laugh, then I was happy".

"When I was doing Doctor Who it was the realization of all my childhood fantasies", Baker told The Guardian (video above).
