"Fantastic to see"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Shada is one of those stories whose mythos threatens to outshine the actual story, and I was worried that it wouldn't live up to the hype. The “Lost Douglas Adams Masterpiece” was a casualty of a 1980 strike at the BBC and was never finished. Thankfully, the Douglas Adams-written tale still holds up, even with animation filling in large, awkward gaps where the footage wasn't filmed, Tom Baker and Lalla Ward are in fine form reprising their roles, and the animation is…not as bad as Doctor Who animation usually is. It's fantastic to experience the story (almost) as originally intended, especially the clever way it plays with its own meta-history.

“Delicate matter, slightly. It's about a book…” When Chris Parsons borrows a book from an elderly university professor, he is surprised to find it written in a strange alien language. He is even more surprised when the book is revealed to be not of this earth at all.

Chris is about to enter a world of invisible space-ships, monsters made of molten rock and computers that can talk. He will also meet a man with a very long scarf who claims he can travel through time and space…in a police box.
