A little Cambridge story with sci-fi
24 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Once upon a time there was a Doctor Who story written by Douglas Adams and due to star Tom Baker. A whimsical, ambitious tale featuring a gondola ride in Cambridge, time scoops and would be deemed to be a classic but for a BBC strike which rendered the story incomplete.

In 2003, a time before Doctor Who was revived, rejuvenated to a new audience came this web-cast using timey-wimey to have Paul McGann's eight doctor re-visiting the events of Shada and hence allowing us, the audience finally have the tale completed.

The web-cast animation is crude but McGann really delivers and Douglas Adams story still has sparks of brilliance.
