Doctor Who Shada

The Lost Adventure by Douglas Adams

For those of you who don't know who Dr. Who is I suggest leaving now. By the way have you been living under a rock? This book features one of my favorite doctors, the fourth doctor, who was played by the great Tom Baker on the TV show. This was meant to be an episode of the show but due to budget reasons it wasn't made. It was written by THE Douglas Adams the man who wrote Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. This book is for Dr. Who fans. You can't walk into it without any knowledge of the series. You just won't get the full enjoyment out of it. The book is amazing. It's written beautifully. Douglas does an amazing job portraying the fourth doctor and the rest of the characters. I could picture clearly Tom Baker acting the scenes out. The plot was incredible and I couldn't wait to find out what happened next, and the ending had me tearing up a bit. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. My fellow Whovians shall be pleased.

A bit about the story: The fourth doctor must team up with Romana and K9 to help an old friend who mistakenly brought the Worshipful and Ancient Laws of Gallifrey with him to Cambridge University. The book is incredibly powerful and mustn't be allowed into the wrong hands. Skagra's hands are definitely the wrong ones.

Book Blurb for Doctor Who Shada

From the unique mind of Douglas Adams, legendary author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, comes  Shada, a Doctor Who story scripted for the television series Doctor Who, but never produced--and now, transformed into an original novel...

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing

Imagine how dangerous a LOT of knowledge is...

The Doctor's old friend and fellow Time Lord Professor Chronotis has retired to Cambridge University, where among the other doddering old professors nobody will notice if he lives for centuries. He took with him a few little souvenirs--harmless things really. But among them, carelessly, he took The Worshipful and Ancient Law of Gallifrey. Even more carelessly, he has loaned this immensely powerful book to clueless graduate student Chris Parsons, who intends to use it to impress girls. The Worshipful and Ancient Law is among the most dangerous artifacts in the universe; it cannot be allowed to fall into the wrong hands.

The hands of the sinister Time Lord Skagra are unquestionably the wrongest ones possible. Skagra is a sadist and an egomaniac, bent on universal domination. Having misguessed the state of fashion on Earth, he also wears terrible platform shoes. He is on his way to Cambridge. He wants the book. And he wants the Doctor...
