Tom Baker Returns To 'Doctor Who' To Complete Lost 'Shada' Episode

The reimagined Shada is available for digital download in the United Kingdom and is soon available on DVD.

Tom Baker has reprised his role as Doctor Who for a newly-released episode of the sci-fi series.

Daniel Hill, who was at the beginning of his acting career when he was cast in Shada, said he was thrilled to see it on screen at last.

What I would ask, as an avid Whovian, is that iTunes and the BBC, please, please, please release more Classic episodes onto iTunes from any of the Doctors incarnations.

Larry Nassar victim calls his apology an attempt to "look less evil"
Nassar offered a statement of remorse and told the court he hopes his guilty plea will help the community move forward and heal. Nassar must also await a separate sentencing on federal child pornography charges in a hearing scheduled for Monday.

The narrative revolves around the planet Shada, where Time Lords have built a high-security prison for some of the universe's most unsafe criminals.

This is technically the third time Baker has returned to Doctor Who since regenerating into Peter Davison.

Location filming and the first of three studio sessions were completed as scheduled in 1979.

If the title sounds familiar, it's because a number of versions have already been issued. It all worked out for the writer, who went on to use some of the characters for Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.

Vasco Da Gama Exp derailed in UP 3 killed, many injured
Less than 12 hours before the Vasco Da Gama-Patna Express derailment, 14 wagons of a goods train derailed in Odisha's Khurda Road. Since Piyush Goyal took the office from former railway minister Suresh Prabhu, there has been no decrease in the rail tragedies.

Baker, 83, will appear in "Shada", an episode that was left unfinished 38 years ago. BBC Books later published a novelization of the serial, penned by Gareth Roberts.

"When I was doing Doctor Who it was the realization of all my childhood fantasies...so I took to it like a duck to water and I still do", Baker revealed. He told the BBC, "That's why I can't stay away from it, it was a lovely time of my life". "My real life was really rather drab".

Now, it has been announced that Baker will return to his most famous role for a brief cameo, while the rest of the episode will be completed using a combination of his voice and animation.
