At the time of the walkout from staff, seven hours" worth of footage had been filmed for an episode titled "Shada", penned by the renowned author Douglas Adams (of "The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy") and which was due to be the series finale for the 17th season of "Doctor Who'.

By the time Tom Baker stepped into his iconic colorful scarf as the Fourth Doctor, this junking policy had been put to a stop.

Jodie Whittaker will become the first woman to play the Time Lord in Doctor Who in the new series, alongside Bradley Walsh who will play her sidekick. First off, he turned up in non-canon multi-Doctor special "Dimensions in Time", which aired as part of the 1993 Children in Need celebrations.

In 2017, the Beeb's commercial arm BBC Worldwide has reconstructed the original storyline from the footage and is filling in the gaps using animations, based on the original scripts and featuring the voices of the original actors - including Baker. As if that wasn't exciting enough, it's also been revealed that the 87-year-old actor is going to reprise his role in the flesh as part of the production.

To make the new scene fit in with the older shots, producers used TV cameras from the 1970s and the original Tardis set, as well as the K9 robot dog model.

He then returned to the patrol unit after which the suspect fired multiple shots with a rifle at him, killing him on the scene. The suspect was apprehended Thursday night near Prairie View, about 110 miles (177 kilometers) south of Fairfield.

It seems there's a national day for everything now - whether it's men, chocolate, burgers or finishing work at 4pm - and today is no different as it's Doctor Who Day.

"I think it never left me and that's why I can't stay away from it".

"Shada was one of my favourite Doctor Who stories".

The lost episode will be available to buy on digital download and will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 4. I have many fond memories of shooting the location scenes in Cambridge, and it was disappointing not to finish the story in the studio. A digital download hit the Web on Friday, available from iTunes and other outlets.
