Almost forty years later, though, the cast of the story have been reunited and chief among them is Tom Baker, the Fourth Doctor himself who played the role from 1974-1981.
When Doctor Who premiered in 1963, the BBC probably didn't anticipate it becoming a worldwide phenomenon and the longest-running science-fiction show in history.
The story was cut short by a strike at the BBC, but over seven hours had already been filmed.
Filming of the final installment of season 17 of the series was abandoned 38 years ago but has been finished using animation and Mr Baker's voice.
The news triggered an outpouring of surprise and nostalgia among the old guard of the show's fanbase, who remember him as "one of the best actors in the role", according to the BBC. Shada was meant to be a celebratory episode to conclude the 17th series of Doctor Who, and was written by Douglas Adams, most famous for penning book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
It will be his first return as the Time Lord since a brief cameo for Children in Need.
Almost four decades later, BBC Worldwide is set to release a new version of "Shada" that blends original footage with new color animations and voiceovers by OG cast members Baker and Lalla Ward (who played companion Romana II).
"Shada" is available to buy as a digital download and is set for release on DVD and Blu-ray on December 4, the New Musical Express reported.

I have many fond memories of shooting the location scenes in Cambridge, and it was disappointing not to finish the story in the studio. It was a lovely time of my life. I used to dread the end of rehearsal because then real life would impinged on me.
