What was filmed of the original was released on video yonks ago, with linking narration by Tom Baker & a copy of Douglas Adams' script.
I wonder how much they're going to change the story to fit in with the Eighth rather than the Fourth Doctor.

No, the 'Shada' remake is
a) due for release in May, a few months too early for the anniversary;
b) an audio play.

But it does have Paul McGann as the Doctor (and Andrew Sachs as the
villain, no doubt to the perturbation of people who know him only from
Fawlty Towers).
