You wait all these years for one full version of Shada to turn up and then, just like those buses, two turn up at once.
Coming this March is the release of the Doctor Who novel Shada, written by Gareth Roberts and adapted from a script by the late and great Douglas Adams. We’ve had an updated version starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor by Big Finish but this is the first time that the story will feel properly complete and entirely new at the same time.
And whilst some of you may like the feel of a good book in your hands the publishers have also taken into consideration those that choose to read their books electronically, either by Amazon Kindle or via an iPhone or iPad.
The result is that as well as being published in the traditional print format Shada will be available eBook format from 25th March 2012 and you can purchase it by visiting the Amazon Kindle store (£9.48) or the Apple iBookstore.
So the choice is up to you, hardback copy to store on your bookshelf or electronic copy to take with you wherever you may go. Or you could just buy both.
This is a very special story after all!
