The PodKast Tom Baker as the Doctor in Shada

A PodKast in the Shada

One of the key elements of our Shada month here at Kasterborous is the podKast (with a “K”) in which we discuss the release of the new adaptation by Gareth Roberts, the original abandoned production, the attempts to remount with other Doctors, John Nathan-Turner’s clever use of Tom Baker to narrate it in the mid 1990s and ultimate the audio version from 2003.

We also try to get to the bottom of this fascinating question: if Shada had been completed, would we be thrilled by it as a classic?

Frankly, for a TV serial that was never completed there is an awful lot to talk about!

See those buttons above? Using those you can play and pause this podKast, and via the links you can download it to your computer to listen later or play it in a pop-up window.

Alternatively, you can subscribe to our RSS feed (the popular way of keeping track of podcasts) which will allow you to download the latest edition to your PC or MP3 player, and you will also find this podKast listed on iTunes.

And for the newcomers to Kasterborous, the player in the upper-right corner is brand new and will let you enjoy any podKast you like from the past 12 months by scrolling through the list.
