A novelisation of the "lost" Doctor Who serial Shada, scripted by Hitchhiker's Guide author Douglas Adams in 1979, will be published next year.

Adams wrote three series of Doctor Who in the late 1970s, when he was in his twenties and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was first airing as a BBC radio comedy. Shada was intended as a six-part drama to finish off the 17th season, with Tom Baker in the role of the Doctor.
