w00t! The BBC plans to air a previously unreleased episode of Dr. Who--one written by noted science fiction author Douglas Adams, who died last year--some 24 years after the project was shelved. And it'll premiere as a Webcast, no less!
The episode, called Shada, was described as "the greatest Doctor Who story never shown" and began filming in 1979 but production was halted by industrial action.
Following several false starts in attempting to bring it back, the drama will finally be premièred in a webcast on BBCi in the spring.
Paul McGann will star as the doctor, backed by a well-known cast including James Fox, Andrew Sachs, Hannah Gordon and Melvyn Hayes.
Director Nicholas Pegg hailed it as "a tremendously exciting project".
