Shada is a unique reconstruction of the one incomplete and un-transmitted Doctor Who story from the 1970s, starring Tom Baker. Chris Parsons finds an old book in an ageing professor's library. He soon finds himself aboard an invisible spaceship, chased by monsters made of molten rock, and attacked by 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.

Tom Baker is a world treasure
Long-time Doctor Who (and Douglas Adams) fans have been waiting for this for decades! Not only did Tom Baker, Lalla Ward, and the rest of the original cast voice the animations, but several of the original production crew and equipment were brought on to reproduce the look and feel of the original scenes. That's a labor of love, and it shows. A great story, witty dialogue, and Tom Baker still delivers the Doctor's lines brilliantly. Even though I'd seen earlier attempts at releasing the existing scenes with commentary in between, this was like watching a brand new Fourth Doctor serial! Loved it!
Shada is one of the finest classic Doctor stories. I first experienced it as a book and loved it very much. Seeing it brought back is wonderful. The animation, supplementing the live footage is well done with an amazing attention to detail. The Forth Doctor, Romana, and K-9 are all present and at their best.
