"Delicate matter, slightly. It's about a book..."
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.
An abandoned Doctor Who classic is brought to life. Starring Tom Baker and written by Douglas Adams, this is “Shada” for a modern audience, with footage upscaled to high definition, and incomplete footage now completed using high-quality animation.

I still through that they should have had realistic CGI and re-construct the missing Tom Baker 1979 epic ‘Shada’ using by combining live action which includes Acting Extras to portray the Main Cast in reproduced and replica costumes with blue masks for the realistic CGI animated faces to be added on by using the same method as they did with Star Wars: Rogue One with both the late Carrie Fisher and Sir Peter Cushion (this movie proves that this CGI method could be done), and just the Human Timelord Prisioners on 'Shada' in matching late 1970s sci-fi prison outfits and 1970's style wigs (the same techniques as the re-vamp Star Wars Movies) minus the silly idea of Douglas Adam's by adding a Dalek, Cyberman and Wirren into the mix of prisioners), blue screen and digital enhanced voice recording technology to 3-D Animate and Constructed would have been a lot better. However, I absolutely enjoyed ‘Power of the Daleks’ full animated, I will enjoy Tom Baker’s missing 1979 adventure ‘Shada’ fully completely resulting in the Tom Baker Era of Doctor Who finally 100% complete.
I would like to say to all the Doctor Who fans who are in small minority of say Jodi Whittaker shouldn't be the 13th Doctor, and only a white male can only play the Timelord, you should be ashamed at yourselves, and take a look back at the Sexist Attitudes towards women during the 1950s up to the 1970s , when actors and comedians used shameful sexist innuendos (The Carry on', On the Buses, and many more) to belittle their female co-stars. The First Doctor Who Producer ‘Verity Lambert’ was a female, and how many Sexist Comments did she face everyday from Production Staff and The Director Heads of the BBC. And also look at the WAY your mothers or even grandmothers where treated either going to work or in social atmospheres. When you lot saw that Harry Enfield Sketch 'Women Know Your Place' you probably where cheering and agreeing with Harry Enfield's character. It is high time that you lot grow up and start respecting females as this is 2017, and not 1947 or even 1957.
Interest in this lost gem has never waned, and the BBC are now releasing the original footage combined with new animation to complete the full storyline. Both Tom Baker and Lalla Ward have recorded voiceovers for the new material, and we can look forward to seeing The Doctor and his companion teaming up in Cambridge with retired Time Lord Professor Chronotis to defeat the evil alien Sakgra.
A long time coming, this is sure to make many fans very happy.
