"Shada" Animated Restoration Review
There's new "Doctor Who" to talk about! Well ... sorta.
The recently released "Shada," the abandoned 1979 Douglas Adams'-penned Fourth Doctor story, has hit the UK. Original footage of the Doctor (Tom Baker), Romana II (Lalla Ward), K-9, and others combined with recent animation (and original cast voices) has brought this "lost story" back to life. Jessica and Phillip review this restored classic Who story which includes "punting on the Cam," killer memory spheres, more Time Lords than you can count, TARDISes within TARDISes, and more. They see how well the "restored" story stands up and how well the live vs. animated footage mix together.
In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple discuses another couple -- the only time the Doctor has married his companion! That's right, they examine the 1980 marrage of Tom Baker and Lalla Ward.
What did you think of the restored "Shada"? Do you think there are other "lost" Doctor Who stories that should be animated?
