The Prequel to A Good Man Goes to War was the third prequel produced by the BBC for the sixth series of Doctor Who. It marked the debut of the Headless Monks and saw the reappearance of Simon Fisher-Becker as Dorium Maldovar.


Dorium meets three cloaked figures, informing them that his agents have procured the exact security software they have requested. Dorium has extracted it from the memory of a Judoon trooper, admitting he decided that it was quicker to take the whole brain. He gives them the brain in exchange for a bag of sentient money. Dorium doesn't understand why they are doing all this to imprison one child, and says he's heard rumours about whose child they've taken. He asks if they are mad and if they've heard the stories about the Doctor. Dorium warns them "God help us if you've made him angry".



  • Dorium mentions that he took a Judoon trooper's brain in order to extract his memories. The brain is in a palm-sized box. He says that the monks will find the software in the frontal lobe.
  • Dorium is paid in sentient money. He says he loves how it wriggles.
