Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor
Produced and directed by Keith Barnfather
Format; DVD/Blu-ray; Runtime: 100 mins plus 50 mins special features (order from Amazon UK)
An original drama from the world of BBC TV’s Doctor Who, featuring Sil, the ruthless alien entrepreneur from planet Thoros Beta, who first appeared in classic Colin Baker-era Doctor Who episodes Vengeance of Varos and The Trial of a Timelord, and is once again played by actor Nabil Shaban.
Sil is worried. Very worried… which doesn’t keep his reptilian skin in the best condition! Confined in a cold detention cell on the moon, awaiting a deportation hearing while on trial for drugs offences committed on Earth, he faces a death sentence if the application is successful and he is found guilty. His powerful employers at the Universal Monetary Fund aren’t too pleased about that. Not at all…
As time runs out and friends desert him, Sil must use all of his devious, vile, underhanded, ruthless, and amoral business acumen to survive. Can he possibly slime his way out of this one?
Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor is produced and directed by Keith Barnfather (Mindgame), written by Sil’s creator and original episode writer Philip Martin, and stars Nabil Shaban, reprising his role as Sil, and Christopher Ryan, reprising the role of Kiv (The Trial of a Timelord) along with Doctor Who stars Sophie Aldred (‘Ace’ 1987-1989), Janet Henfrey (The Curse of Fenric, Mummy on the Orient Express), and Sakuntala Ramanee (Survival).
