Doctor Who
Shada Episode One

Being the 2003 BBCi webcast version starring Paul McGann, also known (retrospectively) as Return to Shada. Yes, it's taken me almost 20 years to get round to this. (20 years! Where does time go?)

It's always nice to hear McGann as the Doctor, but this first episode is a bit slow going, fuelled by too little plot and too few instances of Douglas Adams' brilliant wit (although there are, thankfully, a couple of examples). I hope things pick up in future episodes…
