Doctor Who's Tom Baker To Reprise His Role In Upcoming DVD Release

Almost forty years later, though, the cast of the story have been reunited and chief among them is Tom Baker, the Fourth Doctor himself who played the role from 1974-1981. 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 former Lenham resident who now lives in Sussex made a surprise appearance as Doctor Who for the newly released story, Shada, filmed in Cambridge.

By the time Tom Baker stepped into his iconic colorful scarf as the Fourth Doctor, this junking policy had been put to a stop. However, due to strike action at the BBC, production was interrupted halfway through and never resumed. That's because an abandoned story from 1979, which has gained legendary status over the years, is finally being completed using animation.

Daniel Hill, who was at the beginning of his acting career when he was cast in Shada, said he was thrilled to see it on screen at last.

Now, BBC Worldwide has put all the filmed scenes together and with the help of original scripts, replaced the missing scenes by using animated versions of the characters voiced by the original actors.

Saeed's release: Pak 'hoodwinking' global community
Speaking to PTI, an official source said, "The government can not afford to set Saeed free in the current circumstance". On January 31, Saeed and his four aides - Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Hussain.

"Shada" was meant to be the final episode of Doctor Who's 17th season, follows the Doctor as he faces off against a devious alien scientist who is attempting to locate a hidden Time Lord prison planet named Shada. "Doctor Who... when I was in full flight, then I was happy".

It's exciting to see BBC give makeovers to lost or unfinished episodes of Doctor Who, which still unfortunately boasts huge gaps in the runs of the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton).

"Shada" is now available to buy as a digital download and will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 4 December.

I think it never left me and that's why I can't stay away from it.

It will be his first return as the Time Lord since a brief cameo for Children in Need.
