Yeah, it might not be till 2013 (and for good reason), but the plan as I understand it is to basically reissue the 1990s VHS release of Shada (which had Tom Baker hosting and explaining what went on in the unfilmed sequences), with some additional material, and release it alongside the 1993 documentary More Than 30 Years in the TARDIS (which is why 2013 the anniversary year is assumed for the release). No word as to whether the documentary will be updated or not. No word either as to whether the animated Shada with Paul McGann will be included, though I'd assume not.
