Dæmos Rising was a 2004 direct-to-DVD drama production from Reeltime Pictures. It features Kate Lethbridge-Stewart and Douglas Cavendish – both of whom previously appeared in Downtime – and the return of the Dæmons.
Arriving at Cavendish's country retreat, she finds herself caught up in ancient rituals and a demonic power her father had once helped to overcome. Summoned from its resting place by a tyranny from the future, a Dæmon is set to return to Earth. Can Kate and the broken Cavendish save the planet from destruction or future domination?
