Filmed largely on location around the River Cam in Cambridge, Taken Out of Time features interviews with Shada stars Tom Baker and Daniel Hill as well as crew members Ralph Wilton, Les McCullum and Olivia Bazalgette.

Shada, written by Douglas Adams, was affected by an industrial dispute which led to the story being unfinished. The six~part adventure was to from the Season 17 finale, though footage from the story would eventually be featured in 1983's The Five Doctors. A novelisation written by Gareth Roberts (Closing Time, The Lodger) will be released next year.
