The new production is a mixture of digitally-remastered original scenes and animated segments voiced by the same actors, and features Baker both then and now.

Doctor Who star Tom Baker has reprised his role as the Time Lord - to re-shoot part of a story which was halted in the 1970s due to strike action. I think of myself as the happiest of all the Doctor Whos and they might not agree with that but then, let them disagree'.

Shada was meant to be the end of the 17th series of Doctor Who, but was abandoned until this year when Charles Norton, a producer, made a decision to revive it for BBC Worldwide.

It wasn't the most exacting session, with Warner batting in a hat and only facing throwdowns. He's just had a hit ... he's very confident, and he says he's good to go", said Smith.

In the new scene, Baker was filmed at BBC Television Centre in London on the set of the original Tardis from 1979.

Producer Charles Norton added that he had been inspired to show Baker as he is now, by a line in Adams' original script which detailed how the Doctor would be seen as a "nice old man" in years to come.

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. "I have many fond memories of shooting the location scenes in Cambridge, and it was disappointing not to finish the story in the studio".

"I loved doing Doctor Who, it was life to me".

"That's why I can't say away from it, it was a lovely time of my life", he told the BBC. My real life was really rather drab. He returned (sort of) in character for the 1992 Shada VHS reconstruction, the much-derided 1992 Children in Need special Dimensions in Time, and he had that cameo in the 50th anniversary special as the museum curator - who may, or may not also be the Doctor's future self. It's out on DVD and Blu-ray on 4th December.
