So in DWM 428 it was revealed that SHADA is being readied for a DVD release along with NIGHTMARE OF EDEN. Now the blurb doesn't state how or if it'll be compleated or if it will have the bridging narration that Tom Baker recorded for the VHS version, but I do know that sometime ago someone reconvened the entire surviving cast to record audio of the unfinished bits of SHADA.
What is somewhat contriversal is that aperentaly unable to agree to a fee, Tom's voice was recast and impersonated by another actor (Paul Jones not Jon Culshaw).
From reports, Paul Jones is fantastic and capable of sounding more like Tom thirty years ago than Tom now, and better than Jon Culshaw at both sounding and acting as The Fourth Doctor than simply an impression.
Now as far as anyone can gather this new cast recording is now being animated by a third party to be presented to 2|entertain & BBC Video, and to be edited togeather to finaly compleate the episode in much the same way The Second Doctor's story THE INVASION was completed in 2006.
Now as a Doctor Who fan who's first Doctor was Tom, I've always wanted to see SHADA compleated in some fashion, and I'm excited by the news that may happen. But, is it weird that it'll only half star Tom? Would it pull you right out of the story to know that the voice in the animated bits isn't Tom Baker? I just don't know what I realy think yet, but I hope it'll be great reguardless.
