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.

The Doctor Who Discontinuity Guide

Category: Fiction

When it was originally published, the Discontinuity Guide was the first attempt to bring together all of the various fictional information seen in BBC TV's DOCTOR WHO, and then present it in a coherent narrative. Often copied but never matched, this is the perfect guide to the 'classic' Doctors. Fulffs, goofs, double entendres, fashion victims, technobabble, dialogue disasters: these are just some of the headings under which every story in the Doctor's first twenty-seven years of his career is analysed. Despite its humorous tone, the book has a serious purpose. Apart from drawing attention to the errors and absurdities that are among the most loveable features of DOCTOR WHO, this reference book provides a complete analysis of the story-by-story creation of the Doctor Who Universe. One sample story, Pyramids of Mars, yields the following gems: TECHNOBABBLE: a crytonic particle accelerator, a relative continuum stabiliser, and triobiphysics. DIALOGUE TRIUMPHS: 'I'm a Time Lord... You don't understand the implications. I'm not a human being. I walk in eternity.' CONTINUITY: the doctor is about 750 years old at this point, and has apparently aged 300 years since Tomb of the Cybermen. He ages about another 300 years between this story and the seventh' Doctor's Time and the Rani. An absolute must for every Doctor Who fan, this new edition of the classic reference guide has not been updated at all for the 50th anniversary.

View: 9253

Since its inception in November 1963, the British science fiction television series Doctor Who has exerted an enormous impact on the world of science fiction (over 1,500 books have been written about the show). The series follows the adventures of a mysterious Time Lord from the distant planet Gallifrey who travels through time and space to fight evil and injustice. Along the way, he has visited Rome under the rule of Nero, played backgammon with Kublai Khan, and participated in the mythic gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Predating the Star Trek phenomenon by three years, Doctor Who seriously dealt with continuing characters, adult genre principles and futuristic philosophies. Critical and historical examinations of the ideas, philosophies, conceits and morals put forth in the Doctor Who series, which ran for 26 seasons and 159 episodes, are provided here. Also analyzed are thematic concepts, genre antecedents, the overall cinematography and the special effects of the long-running cult favorite. The various incarnations of Doctor Who, including television, stage, film, radio, and spin-offs are discussed. In addition, the book provides an extensive listing of print, Internet, and fan club resources for Doctor Who.
