Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.


This story was never produced.

Therefore, its known narrative elements are not a part of the Doctor Who universe as we, on this Wiki, choose to define it. It may have been the basis for a similar story in another medium, however — and that story may indeed be valid.


After Daak was the proposed ten-issue miniseries written by Steve Moore around 1990, centred on the character of Abslom Daak. The story was planned with a less heavy four-issue miniseries intended to run before it; this fizzled out, partly because Marvel US wouldn't allow ten-issue miniseries and because they viewed Doctor Who as a dead brand. [1] The story's pitch was put online at Altered Vistas[2].

Story notes[]

  • The series would have seen the death of several recurring characters including; Selene, Harma and Salander, as well as Abslom Daak himself. Vol Mercurius would have been the only recurring character to survive and, with the story leaving the fate of new characters Melissa M'han and Klis Rojart ambiguous, he would have also been one of only two characters known to survive - alongside minor character Tanit.
  • Altair-4 is given as Marcurius and Tanit's destination.
