Product Description

Product Description

More than 30 Years in the TARDIS is an extended version of a documentary first shown in November 1993 as part of the 30th anniversary celebration about everybody’s favourite science-fiction series, Doctor Who.

Including contributions from Doctors Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy, and a whole gang of their companions – it was a fitting tribute to a series that had ended in 1989. With many stunning recreations of classic scenes, the documentary contains rare footage, deleted scenes and classic monsters as you’ve never seen them before...

Special Features

·         Remembering Nicholas Courtney A look back at the life of Nicholas Courtney, who played the Brigadier in Doctor Who, recorded shortly before his death in 2011.

Doctor Who – Shada

 

By Douglas Adams

 

The Doctor, Romana and K9 receive a message from an old friend – a retired Time Lord living as a college Professor in Cambridge. He’s misplaced an ancient Gallifreyan artefact that could unlock the dark secrets of Shada – lost prison planet of the Time Lords – and unless they find it before the crazed scientist Skagra, every sentient being in the universe is doomed…

This special release features the legendary unfinished Fourth Doctor story, newly restored from original film negatives and studio recordings, with 1992 linking material from Tom Baker

"Shada" is well worth adding to your Dr Who DVD collection. I enjoyed the plot; the Cambridge setting and Tom Baker at his whimsical best, relishing his delightful delivery of Douglas Adams "undergraduate humour". Of course the missing scenes are frustrating, and the linking narration, although well delivered, is very brief. However, I made it through the whole 1hr 50minutes in one sitting. The gaps can be filled in by watching the Big Finish version of the story on your web browser. It is well done with basic animation, an interesting framing story and only minor changes here and there in the script. Unfortunately Paul McGann's delivery of the witty script rather dampens the humour. Both the delivery and facial expressions of Tom Baker (and for that matter, the facial expressions of Lalla Ward) are sorely missed. So the experience, in both cases, is imperfect but enjoyable nonetheless.

The extras are also good, highlights being the interview with Verity Lambert and the "More than 30 years" documentary which was very well done, informative in places (even for a long time Dr Who fan) and had me laughing out loud several times.

Now I really must get round to reading the book version...

Now that the Doctor Who dvds are nearly all out, this is a collection of bits and pieces that couldn't have been put on any other dvd release. Shada is the legendary unfinished Douglas Adams story that would have been broadcast in early 1980 if not for a strike. As some other reviews have said this boxset is really just a boxset of extras but there is still a lot to enjoy. Shada is barking mad and a lot of fun, seeing The Doctor and Romana and K9 in Cambridge visiting a mad old Cambridge proffessor who also happens to be a retired Time Lord who has misplaced a book that has the secrets of lost Time Lord prison Shada that an evil alien is after. Tom Baker provides linking material describing unfilmed scenes well and from the look of it Shada could have been a classic Tom Baker story if finished and broadcast as planned and there is also an animated finished version starring Paul Mcgann's 8th Doctor avaliable as well though you can only watch on PC format the animation is poor but story good fun and McGann proves as he has for Big Finish audios that he would have made a great Doctor if given a chance. More Than 30 Years In The Tardis is the 30th anniversary documentary very enjoyable with contributions from various past Doctors and companions. Definately a boxset for the die hard fans and completists only but very enjoyable if you decide to take a chance on it.

This is a great value box set with two versions of Shada and a classic documentary. Its a great shame shada was never competed as it could easily have been one of the best Tom baker stories. What I didn't realize was that the animated version cannot be played through the DVD player, only a computer.

Really nothing to get excited about here. This is definitely one for the die-hard collectors... People like me! I don't want to put people off buying this but, then I don't particularly have many positive things to say about it either. Those of you who are old enough to have watched and possibly collected the old Doctor Who VHS range and watched the sporadic 1990s celebrations and screenings on the BBC will know more or less what this product is. For the younger Doctor Who enthusiasts and the people who didn't get to buy these oddities the first time around, let me fill you in. 'Shada' is an incomplete Tom Baker story. Only location footage and a small amount of studio footage was shot for the story before production was cancelled due to a BBC strike. The story was never finished and left in the archives until the early 1990s when it was released on VHS with Tom Baker linking the significant gaps between scenes with on-screen narration. I never felt satisfied with this presentation. You do get an idea of what's supposed to be happening during the story but, there is very little to keep you engaged. After one viewing, it becomes something tedious and a bit of a disappointment. However, it does have historical interest in that you actually get to see a Doctor Who story that was never broadcast. Despite being revisited by the BBC last decade and remade as an audio adventure with a new cast and accompanying minimal animation for viewing and listening on the BBC web site only (which I believe is included here in DVD ROM format) the story is still - if not more confusing than ever.Read more ›

Brilliant little boxset at a cheap price. Shada is an incredible episode, filled with Douglas Adams' timeless wit and genius. Despite the episode being unfinished, it's nicely linked together with Tom Baker's charming narration.... Plus it's nice to see my home county of Cambridge being used as the setting and filming location, so I was very pleased to be able to recognise all of the locations used for filming.

The "30 Years in the TARDIS" documentary is also wonderful and very entertaining. It does what it says on the tin and it does it better than you think.

Both DVDs are worth a watch and both have fantastic special features, like the Classic Who DVDs always have. 10/10 would purchase again.
