Shada: The Levine Remix

Shada – once the holy grail of Doctor Who episodes – is now something of a cottage industry. For an episode whose run was curtailed by industrial action it has had an active afterlife: it has been adapted into abridged video only episodes, books, audio plays, ebooks and in 2012 a novelisation by current Who…

Episode Title News

With all the speculation that’s going on right now in terms of what’s going to happen next in Doctor Who (River is really the Rani! Omega is in charge of the Silence! The Pandorica is actually the Timelash!) it’s pleasant to get a bit of clarification with some more official revelations. Nothing big or to…

Do You Remember the First Time?

The Dæmons. The Face of Evil. Full Circle. Warrior’s Gate. Kinda. Enlightenment. Remembrance of the Daleks. Ghost Light. Survival. Dalek. Daleks in Manhattan. Fairly exciting list of episodes, no? Diverse, you must admit. I’ve heard from people who don’t like The Face of Evil (I know!), but The Robots of Death has a lofty reputation….

BBC Books have announced the forthcoming publication of a novelisation of the great ‘lost’ Doctor Who serial Shada! Retelling an adventure that never made it to TV screens (despite several subsequent attempts), prolific Doctor Who TV script writer Gareth Roberts has adapted the original Douglas Adams draft scripts and production notes as well as original…
