Tom Baker returns to Dr Who to complete lost episode

Tom Baker

Baker, who starred as the fourth doctor between 1974 and 1981, will appear in "Shada", 38 years after it was abandoned.

Tom Baker, who is now helping bring "lost" episode Shada back to life by voicing his own animated character, dropped by the official Doctor Who YouTube channel to celebrate the sci-fi show's 54th birthday.

The world was introduced to Doctor Who on November 23, 1963, when the show materialized for the first time on the BBC with the first installment of "An Unearthly Child".

The episode, which sees the Doctor heading to Cambridge to battle evil alien Skagra, began filming in 1979 but faced an untimely abandon amid BBC strike action.

The parts not filmed in 1979 will be completed with animation and Baker's voice, but he has also filmed a scene.

The newly-recorded lines from Baker as the Doctor and Lalla Ward as his companion Romana follow the original script by Douglas Adams. The producers used 1970s TV cameras and the original Tardis set and K9 robot dog model to make it look part of the original lost episode. "He was a great believer in recycling", he said.
