Happy Doctor Who Day From Tom Baker!- Doctor Who

"My real life was really rather drab compared with the life of Doctor Who when we were making it".

Namely, a famous unfinished 1979 episode written by sci-fi stalwart Douglas Adams of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fame, "Shada". In an effort to find the hidden world, he calls upon a Time Lord-masquerading on Earth as Professor Chronotis at St. Cedd's College in Cambridge-who, in turn, call on his old friend and protege, the Doctor. Baker starred as the fourth Doctor in the long-running series. Worldwide wasn't content to have the episode lost forever, using an animated sequence to help fill in the gaps, in addition to filming a new scene with Baker. 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 USA on January 9th). The episode had to be shelved due to an industrial strike at the BBC.

Doctor Who star Tom Baker has returned to the cult BBC show to make a cameo in the completed version of an episode that was never finished.

Almost four decades later, BBC Worldwide is set to release a new version of "Shada" that blends original footage with new color animations and voiceovers by OG cast members Baker and Lalla Ward (who played companion Romana II).

"It's a nice way of waving goodbye to an era of Doctor Who and the 1970s and to Tom Baker in general", he said. Together, they will defeat the alien, Skagra, who has an evil plan of trying to steal intergalactic secrets to the prison planet of Shada.

"Shada" is now available to buy as a digital download and will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 4 December. "It was a lovely time in my life".
