SHADA basiert auf den Originaldrehbüchern, die der legendäre Douglas Adams für ein Doctor-Who-Abenteuer verfasste, das nie ausgestrahlt wurde. Ein Time Lord und alter Freund des Doktors namens Professor Chronotis hat sich an die Universität von Cambridge zurückgezogen, weil dort niemandem auffallen wird, dass er die Jahrhunderte überdauert. Als er Gallifrey verließ, nahm er das Verehrungswürdige und Uralte Gesetz von Gallifrey mit, eines der Artefakte, die aus Rassilons dunklem Zeitalter stammen. Es darf nicht in die falschen Hände fallen. Und der unheimliche Skagra hat definitiv die falschen Hände. Er will das Buch. Er will das Geheimnis von Shada lüften. Und er will den Verstand des Doktors ... Douglas Adams starb im Mai 2001. Er ist der Autor von Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis. Gareth Roberts hat neun Doctor-Who-Romane geschrieben.

Get to know the eccentric alien known as the Doctor in this “out-of-this-world read for both Classic and New Who fans” (Library Journal). From his beginnings as a crotchety, anti-heroic scientist in 1963 to his current place in pop culture as the mad and dangerous monster-fighting savior of the universe, the character of Doctor Who has metamorphosed in his many years on television. And yet the questions about him remain the same: Who is he? Why does he act the way he does? What motivates him to fight evil across space and time? The Doctors Are In is a guide to television’s most beloved time traveler from the authors of Who Is the Doctor and Who’s 50. This is a guide to the Doctor himself—who he is in his myriad forms, how he came to be, how he has changed (within the program itself and behind the scenes) . . . and why he’s a hero to millions.
