Douglas Adams „new“ Dr.Who-Novel

Douglas Adams hatte im Jahr 1979 das Buch zu einer dreiteiligen Dr.Who-Folge geschrieben und das wird jetzt zu einem Roman umgearbeitet. Da das sechste Hitchhiker-Buch von Eoin Colfer ebenfalls nicht mehr als okay war, erwarte ich hier eher nichts, aber Douglas Adams + Dr.Who, das könnte dennoch spannend werden.

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. […] Douglas Adams's Doctor Who series are among the very few which have never been novelised, reportedly because the author wanted to do them himself but was always too busy. Gareth Roberts, a prolific Doctor Who scriptwriter, has now been given the job.

Publisher BBC Books declared the book "a holy grail" for Time Lord fans. Editorial director Albert De Petrillo said: "Douglas Adams's serials for Doctor Who are considered by many to be some of the best the show has ever produced. Shada is a funny, scary, surprising and utterly terrific story, and we're thrilled to be publishing the first fully realised version of this Doctor Who adventure as Douglas originally conceived it."
