Reeltime Pictures resurrects the classic villain Sil for a new dastardly adventure.

Reeltime Pictures have a thirty year legacy of producing spin-offs of Doctor Who for the direct to video market. Reeltime have a long history of working with the creators and  individual rights holders of some of Doctor Who’s most favourite character And as a result, they have been able to produce numerous dramas set in the Doctor Who universe, but without the Doctor.

The villainous arch-capitalist Sil is the latest to feature in one of their productions. Introduced in 1985’s Vengeance on Varos, he returned for The Trial of a Time Lord the following year. In his two TV appearances Sil exploited the inhabitants of a former prison colony, and plotted to transplant his boss’s brain into the body of the Doctor’s companion Peri. In this new adventure, Sil is  a prisoner on the Moon.

Actor Nabil Shaban returns to play Sil in a script written by Sil’s creator Philip Martin. The hour-long drama will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray from the 4th of November. However, it’s strictly limited to 1,000 copies.

Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor

An original drama from the world of BBC TV’s Doctor Who, featuring Sil, the ruthless alien entrepreneur from planet Thoros Beta, played by 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 for trial on drugs offences on Earth, he faces a death sentence if the application is successful and he is found guilty. And his employers at the Universal Monetary Fund aren’t pleased either. 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?
