Legacy DVD Shada / More that 30 years in The Tardis

Doctor Who Legacy (Shada) DVD

A double helping of ‘Doctor Who’ treasures. Never aired on television due to a strike in 1979, and never fully completed, the six-part adventure ‘Shada’ traces the chase to recover a powerful book, the Artifacts of Gallifrey, stolen from retired timelord Professor Chronotis (Denis Carey).

Skagra (Christopher Neame) is the evil despot responsible for this foul jiggery pokery. Original footage from this episode was used as the Fourth Doctor’s involvement in ‘The Five Doctors’, before it was reassembled, with an older and portlier Tom Baker narrating the missing gaps.

Also included is the BBC-produced documentary ‘More Than Thirty Years in the Tardis’, a compilation of clips spanning the first thirty years of the Doctor, including some never before seen on television, plus interviews with the many stars, writers, producers and designers.

New to DVD! Digitally remastered Doctor Who classic Shada! Written by Douglas Adams as his final contribution to Doctor Who, Shada was envisaged as a Time Lord story without a Gallifreyan setting. It sees the Doctor bringing Romana to present-day Earth to visit Professor Chronotis, an elderly Time Lord who absconded from Gallifrey and now lives a quiet academic life at St Cedd’s College in Cambridge.

Shada and More that 30 years in The Tardis

Also seeking Chronotis is a scientist called Skagra who has a device, in the form of a floating sphere, with which he intends to steal the Professor’s mind and thereby learn the location of a book entitled The Worshipful and Ancient Law of Gallifrey. Skagra eventually succeeds in obtaining the book, which has been borrowed from the Professor’s study by a student named Chris Parsons. He then kidnaps Romana and hijacks the TARDIS.

Original VHS covers and information…

It was sixteen minute’s past five (Earth Time) on Saturday the 23rd November 1963, the day after the – assassination of President Kennedy, when Doctor Who first materialised on to BBC Television.

Squeezed in between the football results and the Telegoons, a legend was born’.

So, from humble flickering beginnings more than 30 years ago, began the eccentric Timelord’s crusade against evil. Now this fascinating documentary charts that remarkable career in time travel.

There are dozens of classic excerpts featuring all seven Doctors, clips from the wide-screen trailers of the two Dalek movies starring Peter Cushing, plus recently discovered material.

More than just a nostalgic birthday programme, unique documentary made specially, for BBC Video,

Archive gems

  • scenes from the missing 1965 Dalek episode DEVIL’S PLANET.
  • colour film of WILLIAM HARTNELL at a 1966 airshow, plus pictures from his own scrapbook.
  • Dalek creator TERRY NATION on WHICKER’S WORLD’ in 1968

Behind The Scenes

  • Action from the studio floor including CARNIVAL OF THE MONSTERS (1972), DEATH TO THE OALEKS (1973), THE CAVES OF ANDROZANI (1984), GHOSTLIGHT<1989)

Pure Nostalgia

  • BLUE PETER – the Doctor Who monster competition winners, the unveiling of the Who mobile
    and the War Machine.
  • NATIONWIDE – the TOM BAKER interview
  • Pebble Mill at One – interview with Patrick Troughton and visual effects designer Bernard Wilkie

More treasures from the cutting room floor

  • Battlefield – The Brigadier meets Ace for the first time
  • Sophie Aldred and the water tank stunt that went wrong
  • Remembrance of the Daleks – Is there more to the Doctor?

All this plus two exclusive Doctor Who commercial breaks, spoofs by CRACKER JACK and SPIKE MILLIGAN. candid moments and bloopers from across the years, specially shot interviews and an all star cast of favourite Doctors, assistants and of course, monsters.

An ultimate celebration of the world’s longest running science fiction TV series, this special BBC Video includes footage from Thirty yaers in the TARDIS, originally transmitted on 29 November 1993.

SHADA.

The long forgotten adventure destined to bring the Doctor face to face with the evil Skagra and his master plan for total omnipotence.
Recording of this 6 part adventure in 1979 was sadly never completed until now – with the aid of Tom Baker, Doctor No. 4.

Now all available filmed and recorded sequences are linked by his brilliant narration allowing BBC Video to unveil Shada in its entirety at last.

When one of the Artefacts of Gallifrey – a dangerous book dating back to the time of the all-powerful Rasillon – goes missing from his study, Cambridge professor and retired Timelord Dr. Chronotis calls in the aid of the Doctor and Romano.

The Doctor is very worried. Who knows what powers could be unleashed if the book falls into the wrong hands? Then the mysterious Skagra arrives armed with a thought-draining sphere and a scheme for one universal mind. But first he must get hold of the book…

This unique pack contains a video and a copy of the original scripts – a great addition to the wealth of Doctor Who titles on BBC Video.

    Are there plans at all for re-release of The Dalek Invasion of Earth and Earthshock? And has Dan Hall ever said what year doctor who dvd re-releases will stop from like 2006 or 2007 dvds at the latest (Claws of Axos 2006)

    Reply
    • gordon

      December 10th, 2012 - 1:12am

      David banks has said he has done a commentary for earthshock but members of the restoration have no knowledge of a special edition of earthshock being planned or even being considered.(some think david was meaning a convention commentary).Not heard anything on DIOE but i tink its a fine release as it is. Dan hall hasnt given a cut off date but id expect inferno (june 2006) may be the point with possible exception of an often requested silver nemesis extended SE and dinos with ep1 in full colour if its possible in a few years time.

  • Lachlan

    December 6th, 2012 - 4:35am

    So they’ve confirmed Visitation re-release that’s good l always thought the cover for that release was a little too simple but of course extras are more important. I wasn’t expecting any more releases from Davisons era so this is great l hope they don’t release too many Special Editions specifically from 2004 onwards cause l have a few like the Pyramids of Mars and The Green Death from then.

    • Blake

      December 6th, 2012 - 8:17am

      I believe that the underwater menace will have its own release by having the two missing episodes being animated

    • Lachlan

      December 8th, 2012 - 6:17am

      Oh if that’s the case they could do the moonbase and the crusade, They’re not planning to do anything like The Dalek’s Master Plan obviously but l never thought they would do anything after Reign of Terror.

    • gordon

      December 8th, 2012 - 8:36am

      Going by dan hall’s comments the anything over 2 eps missing will be extremely unlikely due to cost (the fact that galaxy 4 isnt getting animated and is only getting released as part of a recon and only as an extra is a telling sign that animation for 3 episodes is above their budget). Most you can expect is reign of terror, crusade, Mission to the unknown, tenth planet, underwater menace, moonbase and ice warriors but thats not a guarantee that all those will get animated releases

    • Emperor Omega

      December 7th, 2012 - 11:04pm

      I hope not. I really want ‘The Tenth Planet’. I also hope the rumours about ‘The Ice Warriors’ being released next year is true.

      I doubt that we’d be seeing ‘Power of the Daleks’ or ‘The Evil of the Daleks’ anytime soon. Which is a pity, coz’ I have both of those stories on Audio CD & they’re really good.

    • gordon

      December 8th, 2012 - 12:36am

      It is more than a rumour (dan hall has already confirmed ice warriors is getting a release next year)and the fact the trailer has been passed by the bbfc means it should not be too far away. There is a good chance the trailer could appear on the aztecs SE which would mean it could possibly be released soon as april 1st.

    • gordon

      December 8th, 2012 - 12:50am

      Seeing as the only unreleased stories where footage exists are shada, reign of terror, galaxy 4 ep 3, ice warriors, terror of the zygons, mind of evil underwater menace ep 2 and Tenth planet the release of tenth planet cant be that far away. it will be out by november at the latest

    • gordon

      December 8th, 2012 - 1:23am

      Doubtfull that power of the daleks or evil of the daleks will get a release as dan hall said animation for anything over 2 episodes will be extremely unlikely

      As its the classic range it wouldnt cover micky adam rory. All depends on what style of documentary they would do. It would be easier to do a couple of talking heads ie same as the girls girls girls 60’s.It would be trickier to get all 3 surving together to do the same style as the 70s and 80’s as mark is in australia and matthew is in america

      The terror of the Zygons dvd is getting a directors cut. What would that be like on a classic series dvd. Do they delete some scenes from it?

    • gordon

      December 2nd, 2012 - 11:21am

      It was a scene that was cut of the invisible tardis of tom ian and liz and was cut because of lighting issues.it was a late cut as it had been already been scored. It was believed to be lost but was found in a mixture of black and white and colour footage which babelcolour worked his magic on.

      Also will you be able to switch between the directors cut version to the original version like Invasion of the dinosaurs? I’m guessing you may be able to switch from black and white to colour on the mind of evil DVD when it is complete.

    • gordon

      December 2nd, 2012 - 9:47pm

      The director’s cut of ep1 of zygons is only 1 aditional scene which was found recently. The directors cut version will be available as an extra on disc 1. Its not available via angle branching (like invasion of dinos ep1) as some dvd models had problems with the angle branching. Mind of evil wont have alternative colour versions as there wont be room on the disc to have both b and w and colour versions and there probably wont be the budget to do both versions. Only reason why dinos ep1 had both versions was down to colour recovery for ep 1 was

      yes for episodes 2 to 6 and was done back in september 2008/09 but there are hundreds of hours of aditional work to get it up to a high enough quality for a dvd release. As no chroma dots exists for ep 1 Babelcolour has been spending the last 18 months hand colourising episode 1 and is due to finish on the 31st december. What i meant when i said we wont get an alternative colour version is: We will get the colour version but we wont get the b and w version as there isnt enough budget or disc space for both versions

    I’ve actually made my own SHADA DVD but i can’t wait for the real SHADA DVD to come out. It’s ace. Ican’t believe that it wasn’t finished because of a bank holiday that’s why I think it’s a miracle that it’s on DVD!!!

      It was due to BBC strikes not a bank holiday. We have (I believe) Sue Malden to thank for the fact that the footage survives.

      Depends on which version of shada though. There are 3 visual representations of shada. 1. The tom baker gap naration which i think is pretty poor (there are only so many ways you can say then this happened) 2. The paul mcgann version which has never held my attention. 3. The ian levine shada (which may never see the light of day)

    I do hope the BBC could find some way of releasing full missing episodes on dvd, alot of collectors have transferred the Loose Cannon Reconstructions VHS to DVD but l think if the reconstruction team could release for use something similar except with documentarys and the usual tardis menu it would be quite cheap to make and would satisfy fans or at least me,

      And if you were speaking about Loose Cannon releasing their reconstructions on DVD then don’t get your hopes up. They make a big point about only releasing them on VHS for copyright reasons.

      No l already know Loose Cannon can’t release them on DVD because of copyright issues i meant if the BBC could do something similar officially you know.

      These titles have been confirmed but no release date

      And underwater menace episode 2

      Tenth planet (with animation)
      Underwater Menace (with animation)
      Moonbase (with animation)
      Ice warriors (with animation)

      November 6th, 2012 - 2:15pm

      To be honest, once all the available episodes are released on DVD, that’s it. I’m not getting blue-ray and the SEs are a rip-off as most of them don’t have the same extras from the original release, so unless they feature other found episodes or animated scenes and new commentaries, I’ll be saving a few pennies, actually pounds.

    • Gordon

      November 8th, 2012 - 3:14pm

      Disagree with jelly baby anyone. Its only 3 releases(pertwee dedication on the tv movie, tombwatch on tomb and panoptican 93 on 3 doctors) that have had extras removed not most of them. And its down to the rights expiring and not being available. Its not ripping people off. Plus you are also getting a brand new restoration for your money as well (which is the main reason for a revisit) so hardly call it a rip off

    Will this be the last Boxset Release? If so it’s a fitting finish to the Boxset’s Range. Still can’t wait for Terror of the Zygons or the Mind of Evil it would be awesome to have the complete Tom Baker Era and Jon Pertwee Era finally although l will buy Special Edition Releases that are to come.
