When Doctor Who premiered in 1963, the BBC probably didn't anticipate it becoming a worldwide phenomenon and the longest-running science-fiction show in history.

Shada is now available to buy as a digital download and is set for release on DVD and Blu-ray on 4 December.

The parts not filmed in 1979 will be completed using animation and Baker's voice, but he has also filmed a live action scene. If they did, the network would have likely not purged their archives of Doctor Who episodes in the '70s, resulting in many serials from the First and Second Doctor's runs to become lost to oblivion. Adams would only write two other episodes for Doctor Who, but "Shada" was always the "what could've been?" after filming for the episode was interrupted by an engineering strike. "He seemed such a nice old man'".

"'Shada" was one of my favorite "Doctor Who' stories".

Hardik's 'yes' to Cong quota formula, 'no' to joint poll campaign
Upholding the Mandal Commission recommendation that extended reservation to OBCs, the court had in 1992 capped the quota at 50%. The Vijay Rupani-led government has challenged it before Supreme Court, where the matter is pending.

If the title sounds familiar, it's because a number of versions have already been issued.

The episode was partially filmed in 1979, but an engineering strike prevented the episode from being finished.

Baker, 83, will appear in "Shada", an episode that was left unfinished 38 years ago. It all worked out for the writer, who went on to use some of the characters for Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. "Doctor Who... when I was in full flight, then I was happy". "So I took to it like a duck to water and I still do". "Doctor Who was more important than life to me - I used to dread the end of rehearsal.... My real life was really rather drab compared with the life of Doctor Who when we were making it".

Baker has played the role of the Doctor in audio plays and made his last on-screen appearance as the Time Lord in 1993 "Children in Need" special.
