Tom Baker Returns to 'Doctor Who' in Live-Action 'Shada' Scene

David Bradley takes on the role of the First Doctor in this year's Christmas special with Peter Capaldi

To mark the memorable episode, the BBC will opt to avoid its broadcast, but will instead make the special available as a digital download and also a DVD release.

"That's why I can't say away from it, it was a lovely time of my life", he told the BBC. Shada was meant to be a celebratory episode to conclude the 17th series of Doctor Who, and was written by Douglas Adams, most famous for penning book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. "He seemed such a nice old man'". "Doctor Who... when I was in full flight, then I was happy".

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

Location filming and the first of three studio sessions were completed as scheduled in 1979. 23, 1980-production of "Shada" was formally dropped that summer. Shada - an episode that began filming in 1979 with Tom Baker as the legendary Time Lord - is finally finished and available to download (a DVD will be released in the United Kingdom on December 4th, and in the U.S. on January 9th).

Baker, 83, will appear in "Shada", an episode that was left unfinished 38 years ago.

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).

The story sees the Doctor with Romana, his companion played by Lalla Ward, working with a retired Time Lord to defeat Skagra, an inmate of the prison planet Shada, who seeks to discover secret information about the prison world. "My real life was really rather drab". And as to why he made a decision to return to the role, he explained: "I think it never left me and that's why I can't stay away from it".
