A still from Shada

Filmed at the BBC Television Centre earlier this year on the set of the original Tardis from 1979, it combines...

What I would ask, as an avid Whovian, is that iTunes and the BBC, please, please, please release more Classic episodes onto iTunes from any of the Doctors incarnations. "He seemed such a nice old man'".

Doctor Who "Shada" is available on digital download in the United Kingdom from today and arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 4th.

The episode is now available digitally and will be available on DVD in January.

Despite attempts by new Doctor Who producer John Nathan-Turner to resume the episodes-scheduled to air January 19-Feb.

The original episode was scrapped after a BBC strike, but not before seven hours of filming for the show had been completed.

Elements of the story, meanwhile, were recycled by Douglas Adams in his novel "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" (readers might remember Professor Chronotis and his time machine).

"When I was doing Doctor Who it was the realization of all my childhood fantasies", Baker told The Guardian (video above).

He's talking about his five years doing Big Finish audios, as well as his cameo in the fiftieth anniversary, and most recently, the episode of his era. "My real life was really rather drab compared with the life of Doctor Who when we were making it".

Tom Baker has returned to Doctor Who for one very special reason - he'll be helping complete a lost episode of the series so that it can finally be enjoyed in full.

I think it never left me and that's why I can't stay away from it.
