Doctor Who: ShadaHDCaution

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.


DOCTOR WHO: SHADA WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE FRIDAY 24TH NOVEMBER. Chris Parsons is happily engrossed in studying post-graduate physics at Cambridge, when one day he finds an old book, sitting on a dusty shelf in an ageing professor's library. Written in a language nobody can read and made of a paper that can't be torn, this is no ordinary book. And when it enters his life, everything changes for young Chris Parsons. Soon finding himself aboard an invisible space-ship, chased by monsters made of molten rock; aboard an alien prison on a distant planet and attacked by a horde of mind-control zombies. Chris also meets a strange man with a very long scarf who claims he can travel through time and space... in a police box. It's going to be a busy day for Chris Parsons.

£16 seems a bit steep

Title says it all, would like to watch this, I’ve been a fan for rap years and Tom Baker was my Doctor, but cost doesn’t seem like value for money.

Excellent & Impressive

I watched this on the day of release, just meaning to have a quick look at the all-new extras, but I thought I’d have a look at the first few minutes of the main programme. 138 minutes later I was still sitting there, watching the credits - I was riveted from start to finish. It’s like a brand new story and it genuinely feels like watching it for the first time. The live (bulk of the) action is stitched together seamlessly with the new animation - and it doesn’t feel too jarring at first, in fact I didn’t notice it after a short while. All of this is helped with brand new incidental music throughout by Classic Who composer Mark Ayres, this makes a huge difference to bridge it all together in a very natural way. Additional live action scenes were also shot in September 2017 to polish it even further - they went as far as rebuilding / reconstructing the full-size 1979 TARDIS interior set and new model shots for some scenes. It looks great in HD, particularly the location film and it sounds amazing with a totally new surround mix. The animation is far from perfect but it does do the job, it’s quite similar to the style of The Power Of The Daleks, it’s not meant to be 21st century animation, it’s more in keeping with how budget TV animation was in 1979 - simple. The voices (by the original actors) blend seamlessly with their performances from 38 years ago. There are a lot of brand new extras, too many to mention but, the highlights are 45 minutes of raw studio footage from 1979 and an all new HD transfer of the clean opening and closing title/credits sequences including test footage. If you’ve ever had any interest in Shada and thought it a pity that it was never completed or been confused by previous versions, then I recommend getting this. You can tell a lot of thought, time and effort has gone into this production. It’s easily worth every penny. You get over 4 hours of material for £16 - excellent value when you compare that to 150 minutes of badly written, dire audio only ‘adventures’ released by Big Finish the day before, featuring David Tennant and Billie Piper for a whopping £35. 😱

15 Quid’s a bit steep.

Dont get me wrong, its a realy good story, but the price is just way too steep.
