A little Cambridge story with sci-fi
24 November 2013 | by Prismark10See 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 it would had been a classic but for a BBC strike which rendered the story incomplete.

In 2003, a time before Doctor Who was revived and rejuvenated to a new audience. This webcast using timey-wimey to have Paul McGann's eighth doctor revisiting the events of Shada and hence allowing us, the audience finally have the tale completed.

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