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.

Not only is Doctor Who the longest-running science fiction TV show in history, but it has also been translated into numerous languages, broadcast around the world, and referred to as the “way of the future” by some British politicians. The Classic Doctor Who series built up a loyal American cult following, with regular conventions and other activities. The new series, relaunched in 2005, has emerged from culthood into mass awareness, with a steadily growing viewership and major sales of DVDs. The current series, featuring the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, is breaking all earlier records, in both the UK and the US. Doctor Who is a continuing story about the adventures of a mysterious alien known as “the Doctor,” a traveller of both time and space whose spacecraft is the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space), which from the outside looks like a British police telephone box of the 1950s. The TARDIS is “bigger on the inside than on the outside”—actually the interior is immense. The Doctor looks human, but has two hearts, and a knowledge of all languages in the universe. Periodically, when the show changes the leading actor, the Doctor “regenerates.”
