“Delicate matter, slightly. It’s about a book…”

Chris Parsons is happily engrossed in studying post-graduate physics at Cambridge, when one day he finds an old book, sitting on a dusty shelf in an ageing professor’s library. Written in a language nobody can read and made of a paper that can’t be torn, this is no ordinary book.

And when it enters his life, everything changes for young Chris Parsons.

Soon finding himself aboard an invisible space-ship, chased by monsters made of molten rock; aboard an alien prison on a distant planet and attacked by a horde of mind-control zombies. Chris also meets a strange man with a very long scarf who claims he can travel through time and space… in a police box.

It’s going to be a busy day for Chris Parsons.

    Is this basically a special edition of the Shada release in the Legacy Collection box set? Like with other DVDs where they had an older & newer special edition version with more extras etc?

      The shada in the legacy set was the 1992 vhs version of shada with tom narrating the unfinished bits. The 2017 version is animated with new dialogue recorded with new model work and score.
