England 2003, and a strange meteor lands in the countryside. Three weeks later The Doctor arrives in the town of Lancashire and soon realizes that something is amiss. Reluctantly he starts to investigate and finds that the townsfolk are suffering from some sort of apathy, shut of from the rest of the country and petrified by something unseen.

flash animation Doctor Who: Scream of the Shalka © BBC / Cosgrove-HallThis “Webcast” was a pilot for a potential new animated series to bring The Doctor back from retirement. However the project became obsolete after the plans for the new television series of Doctor Who started to begin forming: this series (starring Christoper Eccleston as the ninth Doctor: now David Tennant as the Tenth) came into fruition in March of 2005.

There are two other ‘webcasts’ of The Doctor’s adventures on the website: Shada and Real Time. Both are more along the lines of illustrated radio, with still images rather than actual animations. Shada was the last Doctor Who story written by Douglas Adams, writer of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to The Galaxy,” originally written for the forth Doctor(Tom Baker): it was adapted for the eighth Doctor (Paul McGann).
