Tom Baker returns to Doctor Who for unfinished episode

"'Shada' was one of my favorite Doctor Who stories", Baker recalled.

Titled "Shada", the six-part storyline was set to be the third and final Doctor Who episode from iconic sci-fi scribe Douglas Adams (The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy). In an effort to find the hidden world, he calls upon a Time Lord-masquerading on Earth as Professor Chronotis at St. Cedd's College in Cambridge-who, in turn, call on his old friend and protege, the Doctor.

The oldest living Doctor, 83-year-old Baker threw on his stripy scarf and stepped back into the TARDIS to complete the serial-36 years after it was abandoned. More recently, though, Baker played a mysterious character known as the Curator in 2013's "The Day of the Doctor". 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). It was never completed due to a strike happening at the time.

But Westbrook has often spent time in the locker room after games reaffirming to George to be an aggressive, assertive player. Everyone admits the ball sometimes stalls on offense - something Anthony and Westbrook, in particular, are often guilty of.

Mr Baker, voted the nation's favourite Time Lord, was the fourth doctor and played the role between 1974 and 1981. "Doctor Who... when I was in full flight, then I was happy".

However, it will include footage of Baker as he is today, filmed using 1970s cameras. Together, they will defeat the alien, Skagra, who has an evil plan of trying to steal intergalactic secrets to the prison planet of Shada. "Doctor Who was more important than life to me - I used to dread the end of rehearsal...." Though the trailer only gives a brief glimpse of the episode, which will be released as a digital download and DVD special, it perfectly captures the whimsy of a typical Tom Baker episode, with a modern, action-packed twist. I loved doing Doctor Who because it was life to me.
