Doctor Who: Shada episode (animated).

Here’s the animated Doctor Who Shada episode – a fan work, but it looks grand.

Here’s the blurb …

The Doctor has a spot of unfinished business. Reunited with his old friends Romana and K9, he answers a summons from Professor Chronotis, a retired Time Lord now living the academic life in a Cambridge college.

But the Doctor isn’t the only visitor to Cambridge. Somewhere in the city is the sinister alien Skagra, who is intent on stealing an ancient and mysterious book brought to Earth by the Professor many years before.

What is Skagra’s diabolical masterplan? And who or what is the mysterious Shada? To discover the truth, the Doctor and his friends must embark on a perilous journey that will take them from the cloisters of Cambridge to the farthest reaches of deep space, risking deadly encounters with a sentient spaceship, the monstrous Krargs, and an ancient Time Lord criminal called Salyavin. As the Doctor soon discovers, the fate of the universe hangs in the balance…


Colonel Frog is a long time science fiction and fantasy fan. He loves reading novels in the field, and he also enjoys watching movies (as well as reading lots of other genre books).

  • Surely this is the 2003 webcast (40th anniversary year) with audio recording by Big Finish and some limited animation? Ok, they may be fans but fans with a certain ‘official’ status…

    The audio is still available from Big Finish (CD only at £5).

    • Apart from YouTube the webcast animation is also on the BBC Shada DVD (I have it as part of the Legacy box).
