Gareth Roberts Signs Shada
GARETH ROBERTS will be signing DOCTOR WHO: SHADA (Ebury Books) at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 14th March from 6 – 7pm.
Based on the scripts for the original television series by the legendary Douglas Adams, Shada retells a Tom Baker era adventure of the Doctor that never made it to the screen in 1979, due to industrial action.
The Doctor's old friend and fellow Time Lord Professor Chronotis has retired to Cambridge University - where nobody will notice if he lives for centuries. But now he needs help from the Doctor, Romana and K-9. When he left Gallifrey he took with him a few little souvenirs - most of them are harmless. But one of them is extremely dangerous...
Gareth Roberts has written a huge number of Doctor Who spin off titles and has also written scripts for the TV Series and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
