Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor by Philip Martin, was a novelisation of the independent film Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor published by Telos Publishing.

Publisher's summary[]

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 over 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?

Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor is based on, and expands upon, the Reeltime Pictures drama production Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor, originally released in 2019 and available from www.timetraveltv.com. It also spins off from the 1985 BBC Doctor Who adventure Vengeance on Varos, and 1986’s ‘The Trial of a Time Lord’ parts 5 to 8. All characters used with permission.

This book has not been licensed or approved by the BBC or any of its affiliates.

The special edition is an A-format paperback release, sized and designed to fit in with the Target Doctor Who novelisations. It features a retro-art cover by Andrew-Mark Thompson, and includes an 8-page full colour section of photographs from the making of Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor.

Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor is written by Philip Martin, who created the character of Sil and wrote the original script for the film.
