Shada Cover Art Revealed

The cover art for the novelisation of Douglas Adams abandoned Dr Who story Shada has been released and it's kinda a boring looking cover.  Here is a description of Shada for those newer Who fans who don't know what it's all about.

The Doctor’s old friend and fellow Time Lord Professor Chronotis has retired to Cambridge University – where nobody will notice if he lives for centuries. But now he needs help from the Doctor, Romana and K-9. When he left Gallifrey he took with him a few little souvenirs – most of them are harmless. But one of them is extremely dangerous.

The Worshipful and Ancient Law of Gallifrey isn’t a book for Time Tots. It is one of the Artefacts, dating from the dark days of Rassilon. It must not be allowed to fall into the wrong hands. And the sinister Skagra most definitely has the wrong hands. He wants the book. He wants to discover the truth behind Shada. And he wants the Doctor’s mind…

  1. I think it's supposed to be a slight homage to the hitchhiker's covers.
