Tom Baker has returned to the role of the Fourth Doctor, in a partial remake of incomplete episode ‘Shada’.
‘Shada‘ (written by “Hitchiker’s” Douglas Adams) was partially filmed and would have been the finale episode of season 17 but a BBC strike meant it was abandoned.
It’s been 36 years since Tom Baker last officially played the role of the Doctor. At 83 year’s old, his love of all things Doctor Who doesn’t seem to have diminished.
Baker will film a live action scene for the final production on a recreated set of the Fourth Doctor’s Tardis. The rest of the missing scenes will be recreated with animation for a future DVD release.
