    1. Written by Douglas Adams and abandoned due to a BBC workers strike, Shada has taken on almost mythic proportions among Doctor Who fans About a third of the story was filmed back in 1979 before the serial had to be abandoned completely A VHS release of the story with as much completed footage as was available and linking narration by Tom Baker helped a bit, but it didn t necessarily fill the empty void left by Shada s abandonment all those years ago.So when it was time to celebrate a milestone an [...]


    2. Hilarious Very well written and superbly performed Hearing Eight beg his friends to come with him is such fun It s a great example of what makes Paul McGann a wonderful and my favorite Doctor I laugh each time I listen to Shada I was painting large circles for a project while listening to this And now, every time I look at the circles I remember this story.This review is probably so poorly written, I offer my apologies to anyone and everyone as I have had sinus pain in my face for quite some tim [...]



    3. I have to admit that I don t care much for audio drama but this was rather good.Originally Shada is a lost Tom Baker story from 1979 Big Finish has rewritten it in 2003 as an audioplay for Paul McGanns doctor That is a bit odd but it works surprisingly well I really enjoyed it and it was fun to have Romana II and K9 back with the doctor.I recommend it to anyone who is familiar with Classic Doctor Who it is very enjoyable if you ve already watched episodes with Romana and K9.


    4. I ve read the book, watched the Eighth Doctor animated version of this, and now finally listened to the CD audio adventure of Shada, so I guess this means it s one of my favorites It s a very good Doctor Who story from Douglas Adams yes, THAT Douglas Adams, for those of you who were unfamiliar with his having written for the show featuring Romana II and K9, and if they are indeed going to make an animated Fourth Doctor version, I expect I ll be into that one too.


    5. This audio book was exactly the type of witty, entertaining, comedic, and campy material that you expect from both Douglas Adams and Doctor Who Doctor Who fans will love this story Others may think parts are silly Most should agree that the writing is still witty and clever In the audio book version, it takes a little bit to get used to the female narrator as the Doctor, but actually she does a very good job and makes all the voices extremely distinct Coming back to the story, it did exactly wha [...]


    6. A lost story from Douglas Adams Cool This was a very good 4th Doctor story It felt much longer than a normal Doctor Who book, and reading the afterword it was supposed to be 6 episodes.It feels like the best of the old style DW The characterization of The Doctor is spot on The other characters work very well The villain is also an interesting bloke He starts out very icy and spirals out of control into a classic monologueing megalomaniac Very well done There s a nice twist at the end not complet [...]


    7. The infamous lost Fourth Doctor Who story, written by Douglas Adams is finally released as an audio adventure, with the Eighth Doctor stepping in to replace number four.Decent story with enough clever Adams ish bits that make a fun story Fun to hear old voices interacting with old and they really did a nice job of tweaking the story to deal with not getting Tom Baker.Might have been better with an old monster The ones here are a bit blah.Nice to see Big Finish tracking down these lost stories an [...]


    8. One of Douglas Adams s Fourth Dr scripts that was never produced, revamped here for the 8th in audio It works pretty well for Eight, despite having to bring Romana and K9 into the story He does sound an awful lot like Ford Prefect at times, which is a plus in my book Good plot and very enjoyable supporting characters I ll probably listen to it again before too long.


    9. Short read that was pretty much a Doctor Who episode Not a fan of Douglas Adams but when the story picked up after 120 pages, the story progressed well You get some insight into Time Lords which is interesting Overall, I didnt hate it.


    10. Lovely This is my favorite lost Doctor Who story and Paul McGann is fabulous in it Well produced.


    11. Great book Funny and sweet It s not a heavy or thought provoking novel but it s a fast paced romp that will sweep you along.



    12. This is wonderful story, but not for the 8th Doctor But it was also interesting to hear Paul McGann and Lalla Ward togever.


    13. Great Douglas Adams adventure Reminded me of Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy and The Pirate Planet Would have been fantastic on screen.



    14. Excellent completion of a great story that only Douglas Adams could have come up with.Reads like a Douglas Adams novel all the way through Wildly creative and funny.


    15. Audio adventure with the eighth Doctor, Romana, K 9 Uses the script for the unfinished fourth Doctor episode, slightly updated to fit the eighth Doctor s timeline.


    16. The unfinished Douglas Adams story that was commissioned but never filmed Has its moments but ultimately typical Doctor Who territory.
